A Picture Says A Thousand Words

These are unretouched digital images of people just like you, who suffered from headaches, neck pain, tension, low energy, poor immune systems, and breathing issues. The dramatic changes you see here were accomplished using the Bahar Posture Training Method.

HEADACHES

Poor posture irritates the nerves and muscles in the neck and at the base of the skull resulting in headaches

BEFORE
POSTURE NUMBER 30
Head juts out at a sharp angle in front of the shoulders.

Poor leverage forces neck muscles to tighten in order to support weight of the head.

AFTER
POSTURE NUMBER 12
Head restored to proper alignment with shoulders.

Weight of head borne through body’s center of gravity. Neck muscles relax.

BREATHING DIFFICULTIES

Poor posture reduces the depth of your breathing by compressing the chest cavity. This aggravates breathing conditions such as asthma and sleep apnea.

BEFORE
POSTURE NUMBER 22
Head juts out over chest causing the shoulders to round forward resulting in a hollowing of the chest area.

Restricted lung & diaphragm volume.

AFTER
POSTURE NUMBER 6
Proper alignment restored . Shoulders pulled back to rightful place opening & lifting rib cage.

Full lung & diaphragm capacity restored

ANTI-AGING AND INCREASED ENERGY

Poor posture makes you look and feel older than you are. Corrected posture not only gives you a more youthful appearance, but increased energy and vitality as well.

BEFORE
POSTURE NUMBER 42
Hunching forward creates the classic appearance of an aged person. This type of posture drains energy because it causes the body to perform inefficiently.

Breathing capacity is restricted, and additional muscle contraction is necessary just to stay upright.

The constant battle with muscle pain and tension is exhausting.

AFTER
POSTURE NUMBER 9
Patient appears years younger, more vital, energetic and vigorous.

Posture correction improves lung function, resulting in greater oxygen exchange throughout the body. More oxygen equals more energy.

The reduction of pain and more efficient use of muscles leaves energy for other activities.

UPPER BACK PAIN

The rounding of the upper back seen in people with poor posture reflects a compression of the spine, which is responsible for pain in that area.

BEFORE
POSTURE NUMBER 29
Humping in the upper back and forward position of the head causes nerve irritation.

The nerves then send messages to the muscles, causing them to seize.

This is experienced as muscle pain and stiffness.

AFTER
POSTURE NUMBER 22
Improved alignment of the spine relieves pressure from the nerves, which then allows normal muscle tone and sensation.

Pain is reduced and usually eliminated entirely

IMPROVED APPEARANCE

Poor posture affects overall appearance. Due to the rounding of the upper back and shoulders, the protrusion of the buttocks and stomach, individuals with poor posture can appear to be carrying extra weight. Improving your posture makes you appear fitter, slimmer, taller and more confident.

BEFORE
POSTURE NUMBER 22
Loss of height due to neck angling.

Rounded shoulders give appearance of excess weight in back & arms.

Appears under-confident, tired & older.

Buttocks protruding giving the appearance of excess weight.

AFTER
POSTURE NUMBER 6
Corrected posture adds more than one inch to standing height measurement.

Appears more confident & self assured.

Breasts appear lifted.

Appearance of weight loss in upper arms, back, stomach and buttocks despite the fact that WEIGHT REMAINED THE SAME.

Looks younger & more energetic.

POOR CONCENTRATION, A.D.D., AND MOOD DISTURBANCES

Poor posture causes a reversal of the normal curve in the neck, which stretches the spinal cord by as much as 7 cm. The tension created disrupts normal function in the brain stem, leading to symptoms such as reduced concentration, irritability and behavioural issues.

BEFORE
POSTURE NUMBER 23
The neck is elongated as the head comes forward at a sharp angle from the shoulders.

AFTER
POSTURE NUMBER 9
Noticeable shortening of the neck and improved overall balance of the head over the body.

NECK PAIN AND TENSION ACROSS THE TOP OF SHOULDERS

When the head juts forward out of alignment with the shoulders, its weight puts excessive pressure on the neck and shoulder muscles. These muscles are too small and aren’t designed to hold the substantial weight of the head in this position, leading to fatigue and contraction under the pressure.

BEFORE
POSTURE NUMBER 32
The ear is not aligned with the shoulder.

The head comes far forward of the center of gravity.

Shoulders contract (shrug) as they struggle to hold the weight of the head.

AFTER
POSTURE NUMBER 10
The ear is better aligned with the shoulder.

The weight of the head is borne through the body’s natural center of gravity.

Shoulders are relaxed and in their expected neutral position.

IMMUNITY

Poor posture often leads to poor immune system function. When posture is improved, patients find they don’t get sick as often, and are better able to fight colds, ‘flu, and even infections.

BEFORE
POSTURE NUMBER 20
Head comes forward in front of shoulders.

Slouching and rounding of the upper back.

Shoulders round in and help to compress the chest area.

AFTER
POSTURE NUMBER 10
Ear is aligned with the shoulder with no deviation.

Upper back is flat and upright.

Shoulders are back and chest is lifted.
