Posture Alignment Therapy using the Egoscue Method & Postural Restoration (PRI) techniques offers a series of gentle stretches, combined with at times, challenging muscle activation exercises to re-establish neuromuscular connections and movement patterns. These connections can take anywhere from one to 2 weeks to etch into the brain. It is important to commit to these sequences in the menus in order for change to happen.
What makes the Egoscue Method & PRI so unique to other “corrective exercise” programs is the use of walls, floors, and gravity combined together to encourage the body to find it’s own alignment, and adjust itself more naturally.
The goal of each session is to find the right exercises sequence that will bring you back into optimal “alignment”.
I use massage more as an accessory as opposed to the main treatment. It’s a great way to de-sensitize & down regulate the nervous system. Although massage cannot break scar tissue, melt fascia, increase circulation, etc., it can encourage sensorial receptors to decrease motor tone. So my massages are pretty slow to allow more receptor stimulus and feedback. If your back or shoulders are “tight”, the brain may be sensing some instability at a joint and therefore is increasing tone in those muscles. Once the client is relaxed, it is the perfect opportunity to introduce new movement options that they may be lacking. That is why I recommend Posture Therapy to re-establish those connections. Once balance and tension is restored, pain goes away. So our goal is not to fancy you with these terms, but instead, provide a massage that suits the threshold and needs of the client.
