Product Description

Product Description

Are you looking for back pain relief? Physiotherapist Rosalind Ferry provides a simple, easy to use manual to help relieve neck pain, back pain and improve your posture. These physiotherapy exercises will help to preserve and enhance your own movement, balance and relaxation.

Postural exercises are actually quite easy and straightforward - if you have the right teacher. Rosalind Ferry is a well respected licensed physiotherapist who specializes in postural re-alignment, balance, neck and vestibular problems.

How does "bad posture" happen? We begin our lives as babies. We learn to roll, sit and stand . . . and find our balance. But somewhere along the way, we lose that natural harmony.

We become hunched, awkward and uncoordinated.

Misalignments take hold. Our bodies rebel, and we feel increasing pain in our backs, necks, shoulders, hips, knees and feet. Then, it is time to pause and listen to what our bodies are telling us, and make every effort to recapture the easy, efficient movement we once had.

Do you want to live a full life again? Living a full life begins with the postural basics. You can't underestimate the value of good posture, proper breathing and truly restful relaxation. The importance of correct posture begins the moment we step out of bed in the morning and lasts until we climb back in at the end of the day. It affects the way we use our computers, drive our cars or position ourselves when we're simply staring out into space and supposedly doing nothing.

The word 'Posture' comes from the Latin verb meaning "to put or place." It refers to the way we carry our body as a whole, whether sitting, standing, running or jumping.

The key to good posture is for our mind to be calm, our frame in balance and our movements as free-flowing as possible. The brain is the powerhouse. We need to keep it in tip-top condition by overriding all the stresses of modern life and by heeding the old Roman saying about a healthy mind in a healthy body.

Above all, we must not submit passively to physical limitations. We must take action.

Don't you owe yourself the joy of fluid, pain-free movement?

You deserve to feel young again! Try these posture exercises and learn to feel young again.

This book shows practical methods of alleviating aches caused by poor posture in modern living. The illustrations are both informative and artistic and serve to show the layman (myself included) what they are doing wrong. A great book - a pleasure to read. Can't wait for the sequel!

5.0 out of 5 stars It came at just the right time. Nov. 6 2013

The other day my daughter said "Stand up straight mom" and then recommended this book. It is very well written and easy to use. It made me aware of some bad habits and helped me stand taller and eased back strain. I found the exercises very good and am now walking taller, no longer tending to stoop as I get older.

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent e-book July 11 2013

This clear, wonderfully illustrated e-book gives more than tips on posture. It gives a perspective on a better lifestyle, a "go slow, not fast" approach, and how this perspective can help you. The links to exercises makes the e-book very useful and in total, In Praise of Good Posture helps the reader by looking at the root of habits and gives examples inspired by nature on how we can improve posture, and live better.

Excellent book!!!

So many of us suffer from back pain from long periods of sitting in front of computers etc and from lack of mindfulness of our own bodies that this book couldn't have come at a better time! "In Praise of Good Posture" has been so inspirational in helping me overcome daily bad postural habits that contributed to back pain and limitations on my body. I feel a lot more in control and conscious of my posture in my day-to-day activities now and my body feels a lot freer! Rosalind Ferry empowers readers to take charge of their own bodies and their own health, which really is the greatest gift that a physiotherapist could offer! I highly recommend this book to anyone trying to balance the demands of modern life with the daily physical needs of our bodies!

Physiotherapist Rosalind Ferry has done a wonderful job pulling together education and information to teach everyone how to improve their life through improving their posture. The book is divided into sections making it very easy to read and also easy to look things up down the road. Practical information that you can actually put to use right away, to make a difference from the first read. The layout is easy to follow, showing what you should and should not be doing. This book is an excellent reference and should be read by everyone out there - it will certainly help decrease your aches and pains, as well as preventing injuries both acute and chronic. Kudos to Ms. Ferry for a job well done!
