Correcting Postural Distortions with Massage

Don’t let pain keep clients from enjoying life. Help to eliminate their pain naturally without drugs or surgery. Pain relief is available using massage to correct postural distortions.

Chronic pain can be debilitating. If you are a massage therapist that works with clients who experience chronic pain, learning how to help clients correct postural distortions can help them to find the relief they seek.

We are holding a Correcting Postural Distortions class on March 29. In this class the participant will learn how to identify, evaluate and correct the following: Forward Head Flexion, Rounded Shoulders and Anterior Pelvic Tilt. You will become more effective in relieving pain in your clients’ shoulders, neck and low back! You don’t want to miss this class!

When a client has bad posture or even posture that’s just slightly out of alignment, the bones do not line up vertically or horizontally. This causes the body to work hard and fight against the forces of gravity. Poor posture can cause increased strain and tension on muscles, tendons, ligaments and joints that work hard to hold a person in the upright position.

When posture is corrected with regular massage, there is less physical stress and pain because of minimal tension in muscles, tendons and ligaments. Correct posture and alignment regulates organ, blood vessel, and nerve position. It affects the body physically, psychologically, emotionally, and energetically.

Since the body does work as a unit, even when the shoulders, hips, pelvis, knees, or ankles are only slightly out of alignment, it can lead to tightness and chronic pain in other areas of the body.

When the pelvis and hips are out of alignment, it can cause lower back, knee, shoulder, wrist, or foot pain. Likewise, when shoulders or hips are out of alignment, it can cause lower back, hip, sciatica or knee pain.

It’s important to understand that even the slightest, most minimal postural distortion often leads to chronic pain. The human body constantly fights gravity to keep the shoulders, hips, knees and ankles lined up and remaining vertical straight above each other. When any part gets out of balance or rotated out of alignment in any direction, the body compensates and often experiences pain.

Gentle customized massage can help to correct muscle imbalances and work to relieve most types of chronic pain.
