Many people cause their own back and body pain through their everyday bad postural and movement habits. Many sense that their poor posture is probably the root of the problem, but they are unable to change long-standing habits. This book approaches postural changes from the inside out. The author explains that healthy posture comes from a new sense we can learn to feel, not by training our muscles into an ideal shape. It shows how habitual movement patterns and emotional factors lead to unhealthy posture. The author contends that posture is the physical action we take to orient ourselves in relation to situations, emotions, and people; in order to improve our posture, we need to examine both our physical postural traits and the self-expression that underlies the way we sit, stand, and move.
