The concepts taught through the Postural Restoration Institute® (PRI) is the primary approach used at Resonance. PRI is a comprehensive holistic approach that acknowledges the inherent asymmetry of the body and takes it into account when evaluating and during treatment.
The human body is not symmetrical. The neurological, respiratory, circulatory, muscular and vision systems are not the same on the left side of the body as they are on the right, and vice versa. They have different responsibilities, function, position and demands on them.
This system asymmetry is a good thing and an amazing design. The human body is balanced through the integration of system imbalances. The torso, for example, is balanced with a liver on the right and a heart on the left. Extremity dominance is balanced through reciprocal function; i.e. left arm moves with right leg and vice versa.
PRI credentialed professionals recognize these imbalances and typical patterns that develop because of dominant overuse. When these normal imbalances are not regulated by reciprocal function during walking, breathing or turning, a strong pattern emerges creating structural weaknesses, instabilities, and musculo-skeletal pain syndromes, and more.
Balancing muscle activity around the sacrum (pelvis), the sternum (thorax) and the sphenoid (middle of the head) through a PRI approach best positions multiple systems of the human body for appropriate integrated asymmetrical function.
PRI credentialed professionals recognize the more common integrated patterns of human stance, extremity use, respiratory function, vestibular imbalance, mandibular orientation and foot dynamics; and balance these patterns, as much as possible, through specific exercise programs that integrate correct respiration with left side or right side inhibitory or facilitatory function.
PRI treatment programs are designed to restore pelvis position and muscular balance, diaphragmatic breathing, chest wall flexibility, apical chest expansion, and abdominal opposition to diaphragm.
Because PRI recognizes that the body is a unit and the need for proper system interaction, sometimes coordinating care with a dentist, optometrist, speech therapist, or other healthcare professional may be necessary.
