schema:description"A manual for understanding the anatomical and emotional components of posture in order to heal chronic pain. Contains self-help exercises and ergonomics information to help correct unhealthy movement patterns; teaches how to adopt suitable posture in the modern sedentary world.

She shows how habitual movement patterns and emotional factors lead to unhealthy posture. She contends that posture is the physical action we take to orient ourselves in relation to situations, emotions, and people; in order to improve our posture, we need to examine both our physical postural traits and the self-expression that underlies the way we sit, stand, and move.--From publisher description."@en
