Body Talk Issue 12

Christmas greetings to you all. I hope this year has been happy and productive and you are looking forward to embracing 2015.
Addressing Posture
Every week I find myself assisting clients in the awareness of their postural habits. Habits which, sometimes, have been formed by their work environment such as sitting in front of a computer, teaching small children or using predominantly one side of the body in manual work. Sometimes the home environment can be the culprit – picking up children and parking them on one hip, gardening or simply vacuuming.
Posture is a major influencing factor in the origin of our aches and pains. When we face a problem, we develop coping strategies as a response, which can have a physical or emotional cost. Often these responses cause the body to be unbalanced: hips/head thrust forward, chest depressed, one hip higher than the other, one shoulder higher – leading to a cascading effect throughout the body.
What is interesting to see is the way that tight and weak areas of the body compensate for each other. These often change dramatically after an Emmett/Bowen session. The muscles reset and the structural holding patterns change, bringing the body back into balance. After a treatment, so many of my clients report that they are feeling lighter or ‘new again’.
text neck can be improved by Emmett Therapy‘Text neck’ seems to be the new health concern and a very real one too! Again posture is the issue and, it is claimed, that problems such as
• Headaches
• Neck pain
• Shoulder pain
• Gastointestinal issues
• Loss of lung capacity
can be a result of prolonged head down texting. The obvious solution is to hold your phone up …and to come and see me!
I thoroughly enjoy being able to realign the bodies of my clients, to relieve their aches and pains and to problem-solve the causes of and solutions to their pain and discomfort.
