The New Rules of Posture
How to Sit, Stand, and Move in the Modern WorldBook - 2007
A manual for understanding the anatomical and emotional components of posture in order to heal chronic pain. Contains self-help exercises and ergonomics information to help correct unhealthy movement patterns; teaches how to adopt suitable posture in the modern sedentary world. Author Bond approaches postural changes from the inside out, explaining that healthy posture comes from a new sense we can learn to feel, not by training our muscles into an ideal shape. She shows how habitual movement patterns and emotional factors lead to unhealthy posture. She contends that posture is the physical action we take to orient ourselves in relation to situations, emotions, and people; in order to improve our posture, we need to examine both our physical postural traits and the self-expression that underlies the way we sit, stand, and move.--From publisher description.
