Postural Restoration

About Postural Restoration® in Watertown, MA.

Postural Restoration® worked for me!

Postural Restoration® Therapy to reduce chronic pain is incredibly effective.  I believe in it strongly because it has helped me, and my clients, go from daily back pain, to running and jumping and frolicking the way we used to do - pain-free. 

Still Studying the Science

I have studied Postural Restoration at the Postural Restoration Institute® and have taken many of their courses that come to the east coast . While I could talk about PRI forever, the basic premise is this:

Our bodies are not symmetrical. (Your heart's on the left... your liver, on the right... the respiratory diaphragm drives you to the right with each and every breath) and the human body is balanced through the integration of many system imbalances.

The neurological, respiratory, circulatory, muscular and vision systems are not the same on the left side of the body as they are on the right, and vice versa. They have different responsibilities, function, position and demands on them. As a result of this complex human design, more strain and torque on certain parts than seems fair can easily develop if not managed intentionally.   Poor pelvis! Poor spine!  Poor neck, jaw, and yes even the eyes...!

Postural Restoration®, at its simplest form, is a unique combination of exercises and manual therapy that addresses the body’s postural position and the potential muscular imbalances which lead to pain.  When properly positioned, aligned and balanced, the joints and muscles can work in a more effective and efficient manner.

Live Pain Free with Postural Restoration®

Postural Restoration explains how all the pieces of the body – the shoulder, the neck, the back, the hip, the knee and the foot … have to work together to function properly.  It also includes the systems involving the rib cage and diaphragm, pelvic muscles and position, foot stability, tooth contact, vestibular system and balance.  Successful outcomes at Kaivalya Bodywork sometimes rely upon integrating various specialists including dentists, optometrists and podiatrists.

If the body’s resting state and motions are not balance, pain and dysfunction result. As this dysfunction and imbalance persist, body structures undergo stress and strain. Postural Restoration aims to re-position body structures such as the hips, back and diaphragm, and retrain the muscles to return to optimal function, without pain. It’s goal is to restore positions so that all body parts can integrate effectively with each other.

Key in Postural Restoration is the relationship of various parts of the body to the diaphragm and rib cage. How we breathe determines how the rest of the body works. The position of the pelvis is extremely important as well.
