The products below are products I have either used myself or that have been recommended by my clients.
Whilst many of the objects below can be imitated with things you can find at home, you will probably find it useful to make the investment for a number of these items if you plan to take Postural Alignment Therapy and improving your movement capabilities more seriously long term.
Don’t rush out to buy anything straightaway (or before your first appointment) but you’ll probably see the value in a number of these quite quickly.
You may have seen the ‘Tower’ within one of Pete Egoscue’s books and they are a fantastic tool for most people’s postures and bodies. The Towers relax the hip flexors, reduce pelvic disparity, re-align the leg from hip to toe and allow the thoracic and shoulder area to settle and extend.
Stiff, clawed, crooked toes? Toe Separators are an easy way to start passively stretching out your toes around the home. You might need to start wearing them only for 15 mins at a time (if you have very stiff feet).
VIVO BAREFOOT SHOES
Whilst I am sure there are plenty of amazing barefoot shoe companies out there, Vivo Barefoot are the only ones I have personally ever worn, so are the only ones I can recommend through personal experience.

The books below have hugely contributed and helped in shaping my thought processes and general approach.
The more involved you are with your own learning, the more you will take away from your involvement with me and Postural Alignment Therapy.
