What do posture, breath, and mindfulness have to do with wellness? 

Integrating holistic treatments into movement and wellness practices, Cultivating a Sustainable Core is an indispensable guide for initiating and organizing assessments and interventions for patients with multiple injuries. 

Drawing on clinical research and years of experience in physical therapy, sports medicine, athletic conditioning and yoga, this book explains why the author first addresses the body's dynamic central motor stability and efficiency when treating clients. Cultivating a Sustainable Core demonstrates how the application of breathing, mindful movement and cognitive reframing practices can counteract the effects of detrimental postural and movement habits, breath and thought patterns, pain, and chronic stress. Extensive research backs up the author's discoveries while illustrations and user-friendly practices bring the theory and practical techniques to life.
