Is Restorative Exercise™ for me?
Relieve pain and ward off disease by restoring your body's alignment and learning how to work with the physical forces of gravity, friction, and torque to better sustain your physical health.
In addition to praticing various forms of science-based therapeutic movement and natural alignment, gather essential information on the laws of physics, geometry, biomechanics, anatomy, and physiology that govern your body.
Learn to use your body correctly.
Many ailments are caused not by HOW MUCH you move, but by HOW you move. Even the number of hours per day spent in a sitting position can have a negative effect on your health. In fact, the most common, expensive, and painful ailments are the result of poor motor skills. Diligent, consistent effort will improve them. It’s simple physics and it works.
Posture is different than alignment.
Posture is how your body looks. Alignment is how your body works. Your posture can look great but your alignment can still be really off as many of our "posture rules" come from our culture and have adapted to various habits taught in the military, ballet dance, what is "proper" (think good manners). Adapting our bodies to our culture is one of the main reasons affluent ailments have developed in the first place.
How can I tell if my alignment is off?
If you need pain or anti-inflammatory meds to function, have aches, pains, or have worn out a body part here or there (joint replacement or other surgery), then there are some adjustments you need to make in HOW you are using your body. You can learn a new way.
Why does our program work so well?
Geometry is right 100% of the time for EVERY BODY. Our program is not about passive treatments. We go beyond chiropractic, nutrition, physical therapy, massage and other healing modalities by teaching you what kinds of movement habits are damaging and how to turn your patterns into healthy ones.
Temporary pain relief from medications, adjustments, and treatments are just…temporary. Lasting changes are not possible until you deal with the root cause of the problem: how to move, sit, and stand in proper alignment.
