Body Structure & Movement
TOOLS TO GET YOU MOVING & IMPROVE POSTURE, JOINT, MUSCLE AND BRAIN FUNCTION.
Many everyday stresses and habits have an impact on the amazing structure of the human body. A structure consisting of 206 bones, around 650 skeletal muscles, over 900 ligaments, plus fascia, cartilage and numerous other tissues. The incredible design of these skeletal tissues allows us to stand upright, provide protection to vital organs, and allow movement, under the control of our brain and nerve system.
But injury, overuse, lack of exercise, scar tissue, and poor posture are just some of the ways we can stress our physical body, impacting how other bodily tissues and organs function, including the brain.
A number of professions aim to address the "structural" component to optimize health and well-being. Cranial osteopathy, chiropractic, massage, physiotherapy, yoga, and pilates, just to name a few.
So here you will find information on how to reduce the stresses on your physical body, some exercises and stretches recommended for optimal movement and posture, plus ways to nourish your joints and improve brain function.
The pictures below illustrate some of the areas we hope to cover in this topic.
