What is Postural Alignment Therapy?

The Goal of Postural Alignment Therapy

A body that is healthy, functional and pain-free comes from proper postural alignment, joint positions and function. When the body is out of alignment it begins to compensate for imbalances causing muscle tightness, decreased flexibility, and eventually the onset of pain. These compensations cause wear and tear of joint degeneration at any age.

Postural Alignment Therapy is designed to carefully look at these underlying causes of pain, instead of only treating symtoms. This provides lasting pain relief and a return to your body's pain-free original design and functioning.

How It Began

In 1971, Pete Egoscue created The Egoscue® Method, also known as Postural Alignment Therapy, as a way to help people restore their bodies back to health and function. He discovered how to relieve back, shoulder, neck, hip, knee, ankle, foot and other pain without medications or manipulation.

Now, Postural Alignment Therapy has a proven 95% success rate in relieving tension and chronic pain.

How it Works

A series of personal exercises and stretches, practiced regularly, will relieve your pain. Antje begins by carefully evaluating your posture and imbalances. She develops a detailed menu of exercises designed to correct imbalances in your body, along with step-by-step instructions. As you practice the exercises and your posture changes, Antje reevaluates your posture and may make changes to your exercises to continue to build on your progress.
