Bad posture is so common – and it is responsible for so much pain! Not just from the strain and tension you are feeling pretty soon, but even more so in future from the unnecessary degeneration it causes. You wouldn’t drive your car without the wheels being properly aligned, right? So why do you put so much unnecessary mechanical stress on your body?

Poor posture can obviously create neck, back and hip pain – but also headaches, constipation, insomnia, mood problems and even high blood pressure, to name a few. And what makes all this so problematic is that poor posture is incredibly common today with most of us sitting so much every day: in front of computers for hours or in the car, then slouching on the couch. And in between we add massive stress on our neck by staring down at our mobile devices constantly.

Apart from resolving pain and useless stress on your body, good posture makes you instantly:
– taller
– more attractive and
– more confident.
