Postural Alignment Therapy
Very often chronic pain and injury is the result of misalignment in the body.
These sessions are specifically tailored to your needs, gentle postural exercises practiced mindfully may begin to bring you back into alignment, increasing mobility and reducing pain.
"Chronic musculoskeletal pain is symptomatic not of advancing and accumulating years, but of advancing and accumulating dysfunctions."
~ Pete Egoscue, Founder of the Egoscue Method
