postureYour posture is the natural position we hold our bodies while standing, sitting or lying down.  Your personal posture directly affects your health.  If you have good posture, your posture has correct alignment with the right amount of muscle tension balanced against gravity.  Proper posture helps you keep your muscles, ligaments, bones and internal organs in their natural position.   When your posture is out of balance or misaligned the pressure on your spine and neural muscular skeletal frame increases;  and can lead to tension, soreness, headaches, back pain and variety of other symptoms. The first step is educating yourself and then taking steps to address your posture.
