Better Balance & Less Injury

Faulty body mechanics always creates imbalance in the body, increasing our risk of falling, accidents and injury. Postural collapse shifts a greater amount of weight to the front of the body’s midline, while other parts move behind the body’s midline. This puts the body, precariously and dangerously, out of balance. We stand and move differently more
