Preventative wellness by improving balance, posture and mobility
Wellness is really about taking care of yourself before you fall ill, get hurt, get stressed and so on. It is a way for each individual to find balance in life.
What we are dealing with is balance and posture, mobility and agility – and we believe it is the most important foundation for good health and taking care of oneself.
With the body being balanced, it for example becomes easier to train and the body’s own healing process works better.
Balancing the body and having good posture is the foundation for a healthy life, a strong platform to build from.
The effect is absolutely the easiest to see immediately after the treatment is the posture, this because of the pictures taken before and after treatment – the posture is always changing for the better.
Many people describe the feeling of walking out of the treatment room, proud and upright, and better posture helps the body to distribute the load during training and effort – and in addition, many people feel surer of themselves. The body rises and feels lighter. We have had clients with text neck that got rid of it and even those who have lost a small beer belly.
With good posture comes good balance. When the body is centered the flow of blood improves as well as nerve signals in the body, it becomes easier to relax, and the body’s own healing process increases.
Poor balance and posture leads to the body being forced to compensate for the imbalance – which affects the neck, shoulder, shoulder area, back and pelvis – and it can also lead to uneven length of legs.
The body is clever and distributes the load onto several points.
Coordination and flexibility
“The most surprising thing was that I became better at drums”– Axel, Musician.
Although you feel healthy and good you can always feel better. Axel above had no real trouble, but describes, however, increased mobility, and a smoother dexterity. The reason may be that nerve signals to and from the brain encounters less resistance when the body and the spine are more balanced.
Elite Swimmers treated also tells of improved mobility throughout the body and improved results in both training and competition.
Balance and posture improves the body’s flow of blood and nerves. So many people who come to us get rid of headache, gets better focus and more energy. The greatest imbalance we treat is in the neck, an area that is very difficult to treat without good tools.
We examined 1260 people for four days in the autumn of 2012 and over 95% had poor balance and posture. The neck muscles are then forced to compensate and the stress can lead to headaches. If the head is also tilted forward, external influences such as gravity and cosmic pressure may contribute to fatigue.
Another effect of the imbalance is that the blood flow to and from the brain can be affected. If the pressure gets too high headaches may occur and if the pressure gets too low and too little oxygen reaches the brain one will tire easily.
