Guaranteed: Less pain, more energy, better balance

Serious about improving memory, energy, balance, strength, flexibility = quality of life? Start today by focusing on your posture/core alignment all day long when walking, sitting, standing, in the kitchen, yard or hobby spot. Everyone can improve somewhat!

Better posture has these benefits:

1) more oxygen to the lungs and enhanced blood flow to the brain for memory and sharp thinking skills, decreases depression, better balance

2) more blood flow to whole body decreases pain and increases flexibility and increases energy

3) more maximal muscle usage with good alignment which leads to increased strength and balance

Start today! Stop slouching/slumping … be aware all day of thinking “taller” and “straighter.” Inspire a friend/loved one to join you in getting healthier! It works!

If you need help with posture ideas, we have great physical therapists and personal trainers in Sequim.

Focus on your posture/core alignment for a higher quality of a joyful life!
