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 play professional hockey in Europe and I chose Body by Choice because of the elite level training programs they offer to athletes. I worked primarily with Nick and his colleague Kolby who are both very knowledgeable. Nick set up a personal program for me including diet, supplementation and a strength and conditioning routine that helped me reach my goals. In only 10 weeks I dropped 4% total body fat and put on 13 pounds of lean muscle. If you are serious about your sport and live in the Grand Rapids area you need to give them a call. I highly recommend Body by Choice.

  • Weekly training sessions at BBCT over the last year have been a crucial part to my strength development and lean muscle gain! Taylor's motivation and careful program planning has kept me focused and allowed me to realize my body's full capabilities as she pushes me for one more rep - something I would've given up on if I were by myself. Up until a year ago, I have always just trained individually and certainly continue to do so, but have found that even a weekly session has been incredibly beneficial with regards to reaching my fitness goals.

  • The knowledge that Nick & the rest of the trainers bring is something beyond any gym I have ever been a part of. Their genuine interest in helping accomplish your health & fitness goals is also on a level that is beyond what most gyms/trainers offer. They are truly the best of the best & highly recommend if you're looking to change your lifestyle.
