Good Posture – An Absolute Necessity for Vibrant Health! If we take a moment to read this statement it comes as no wonder that vibrant health and bad posture are never found in the same body. All those years of our parents telling us to sit up straight and not slouch; this was indeed very, very good advice.
HEALTHY SPINE = HEALTHY LIFE
If you want your child to grow up healthily, a balanced spine is critical. The evidence is overwhelming that posture is as important as nutrition and exercise and in many ways far more important. If you choose to ignore it then the consequences can be very serious indeed! Here in Singapore, we see worsening postures everywhere.
If you are experiencing neck and/or shoulder pain please try to understand what these ‘whispers’ from your body are telling you. In all likelihood, they are telling you that you are losing your structural balance.
The human body simply needs to be in alignment. If it is, we are more efficient standing in gravity and we are not ‘hanging’ on our muscles and ligaments. Our weight is being supported effortlessly. Better still, we feel healthy, have bags of energy and move gracefully. This is not just about standing up straight; it’s about postural awareness and developing and maintaining great habits.
A balanced spine and posture is a beautiful thing. If you have developed Forward Head Posture (FHP) then unfortunately there is a very high probability that you have not only lost your natural neck curve, but you have actually developed a reversed cervical or neck curve. This can lead to terrible health consequences, so we encourage you to read on as the following information is of vital importance.
