Correcting Poor Posture without Awareness or Willpower
Wernik, Uri
Journal of Creativity in Mental Health, v7 n4 p375-380 2012
In this article, a new technique for correcting poor posture is presented. Rather than intentionally increasing awareness or mobilizing willpower to correct posture, this approach offers a game using randomly drawn cards with easy daily assignments. A case using the technique is presented to emphasize the subjective experience of living with poor posture, participating in the game, and the accomplishments gained. This playful way of changing can be used with other bodywork techniques. Some hypotheses are offered to explain the effectiveness of the technique. This technique has no known side effects and warrants further exploration and adaptation to other problems.
