Posturology?

Posturology is nothing short of life changing that dates back to the XIXth century.  It is a technique that changes the way your brain communicates with your muscles = improved posture,  increased strength and lower pain. 

Our current health system was built to treat symptoms, instead of addressing the true cause of the symptoms.

The basic premise of Posturology is that the body receives sensory information from the environment primarily via the foot, eye, bite and skin. If there is a defect in one or more of these systems, the body adapts to the faulty signals it’s receiving, and thereby becomes pathologically imbalanced.

The aim of Posturology is to correct errors at these receptor sites, returning the body to proper equilibrium.

Defining Posturology?

Posturology is an unconventional method of studying posture, an automatic and unconscious motor act that allows:

– To adopt an erect position.

– To stabilize this position in static or dynamic.

– To develop the spatial knowledge of the self in relation to its environment. Who says posture says fight against gravity.

Posturology is concerned with the body’s strategy to fight against gravity. Posturology is a discipline that studies the position of a subject in space:

– Its balance.

– Its stature.

– Its stability.

It considers the ability to balance on one’s feet as well as the symmetry of the body or the visual perception of horizontality.

Principles of Posturology?

To stand upright, human beings struggle against gravity and seek balance.

He must constantly adapt his body to his environment according to the external signals received by his sensory sensors located in the eyes and feet.

These signals are transmitted to the brain which, in turn, sends messages to the muscles so that the body adapts.

The cause of a posture disorder is the information received from misadjusted sensors. The consequence can be:

– Balance disorders.
– Muscle tension.
– Chronic discomfort.

The benefits of posturology:

Posturology does not aim to cure any ailment whatsoever. It therefore does not claim any therapeutic application as such.

It is an observation tool that can detect and improve postural asymmetries and functional balance disorders.

The benefits can be as follows:

– Elimination of physical pain.
– Elimination of muscle tension.
– Significant improvement in balance.

  • I love Body By Choice Training! My friend Ryan and I (ages 17) have been going here for a little over a year now. We started out just one day a week but ended up loving it and now we’ve been going two days a week for about 10 weeks now. We love our trainer Taylor she pushes us to succeed and I have never felt better about myself in my life!

  • I have recently joined Body By Choice and could not be happier. The owner Nick and my trainer Kolby have put together a personalized plan to get me back in shape and help relieve some of my chronic pain. Kolby pushes me every workout and I trust in his process. Also meeting with the nutritionist has completely changed my eating habits. The education about nutrition is priceless. I have renewed hope that I will meet and exceed my fitness goals.

  • Far and away the best gym and personal training in West Michigan. Nick and company put in a lot of work to make sure you have a complete plan (workout, nutrition, supplementation) tailored to your specific needs. I've worked with Nick, Nathan, and Tiffny. They (and the rest of the team) are awesome! The facilities are first class and I love the private gym experience. I highly recommend BBCT to everybody. Tell them Austin sent you!

  • I have an excellent, knowledgeable trainer that works with me weekly and designs new workouts specifically for me. I have built so much strength in my body that I had lost for a long time, more than I had hoped for as I had worked with other trainers before without these results. And my positive results are evident in my medical assessment - my Doctor is very pleased with my numbers! Annamaire is a pleasure and joy to work with and has made a real difference in my life.
