During each Reposturing massage, a combination of stretching, massage techniques, and breathing guidelines aim to correct poor posture and restore flexibility. Though progress may be noticeable in 1 or 2 sessions, it may take 10 or more sessions to achieve optimal results. The treatment can also target muscles in the face, neck, and jaw with deep-tissue pressure to help improve bite alignment.
Aaron Parnell, Phyziquest
Aaron Parnell believes that good posture is much more than a matter of sitting up straight. The published author and sought-after speaker has appeared on radio and television programs to discuss his signature treatment—Reposturing Dynamics—which he uses to address conditions that range from arthritis pain to excess abdominal weight. Parnell developed the stretching-, breathing-, and massage-based technique after interviewing some 300 Olympic athletes at the 1984 Olympics about their physical, mental, and emotional keys to success. He has been performing the intense "massage workouts" for more than 25 years, and he has created books and videos to help clients continue the restorative process at home. His Reposturing Yoga DVD, for example, combines traditional Hatha yoga with cutting-edge advancements in sports performance and kinesiology.
Parnell also founded the Vitality Sciences Institute, where he trains and certifies other practitioners as part of a state-registered program. The classes teach participants to combat signs of aging with facial reposturing or improve their posture during workouts by installing a steel rod in their shirt.
