What is Good Body Posture?

Most members of the animal kingdom walk around on four legs, and that makes a lot of sense. Moving on four legs makes you more stable and helps you get around faster. Some animals are so stable that they can even sleep standing up!

Benefits of Good Posture

The physical pains you feel are often related to some misalignment somewhere else in your body. Trigger points in your connective tissues can cause pain that radiates out and affects many parts that are otherwise healthy. It’s like when you snag a sweater — it pulls the threads not only where the snag is, but distantly in the fabric as well. Finding and resolving these trigger points can bring immense relief.
