Postural Re-Education & Post Techniques
No Pre-requisites.

8 unit Post Techniques, 8 units Postural Re-education
Location: Scroll down for workshop locations and other information.

In order to help people with chronic pain and people who sit all day, to become pain-free, you must work with posture and structural alignment. Empower your clients to tune into their bodies and engage their innate self-corrective reflexes to develop awareness, ease and comfort, to relieve pain and improve their well-being and enjoyment of life. Therapists benefit, too.

In this class, participants learn how to evaluate and help clients resolve inefficient postural habits which are often the underlying factor in chronic back pain, neck pain and pain that travels into the extremiites. Post techniques are used to assess and release areas of tension, to deepen and integrate work done in a session. Techniques to work with spinal curvatures and scoliosis will be presented and practiced. Participants will practice how to teach clients exercises and movements that develop their ability to maintain balance, initiate self-correction through postural work and prevent the recurrence of pain through neuromuscular re-education. Important to any bodywork practitioner who wants to help relieve chronic pain, Postural Re-education is another way to build your practice and empower clients to feel better faster.
It is amazing that a few simple exercises, that can be done almost anywhere, can relieve pain so quickly. That's the incredible effectiveness of our body's self-corrective ability to restore well-being from within.

"While writing the workshop outline years ago, I taught a neighbor with kyphosis and chronic low back pain many of the postural exercises you’ll learn in class.  He was amazed with the results.  Said he could feel that he was standing straighter, taller immediately after the work.  The next day, he called and exclaimed that he felt no back pain at all, even after sitting through a verrrryy loooonnnnng movie.  We were both impressed by the immediate efficacy and long-lasting results of the Post Techniques and Postural Re-Education." ~ Ann Hoeffel

Please bring to class: 1 sheet for a massage table, a pillow, a face cradle cover, two hand towels, pen or pencil and paper. Women, please bring or wear a shirt that buttons down the front or sports bra. On the afternoon of the second day, we welcome people with scoliosis to work with. Optimally, one person for every two students. Each will receive assistance at no cost while the students benefit from seeing and practicing the work as you would with clients.
