Instructions

 

PurePosture can be used on the floor, a weight bench or even an ottoman. Beds are too soft to be as effective and difficult to move on. Make sure the surface is stable enough to support your weight and there is no chance of falling off.

 

Use a timer. Your cell phone works great. Set for 1 to 2 minutes per level.

 

Begin at the top of your spine, lay down slowly using your elbows for support. The risers should be just below where your neck meets your upper back. You may feel uncomfortable for about 10 seconds - this is the muscles trying to resist but shortly the tension between the vertebra will release. Some places may be more uncomfortable than others.


HINTS

 

CENTER YOURSELF SO THAT YOUR SPINE IS EQUALLY BETWEEN EACH RISER.

  • When the risers are in the small of your back, this is the last position and that's it, you're done.  
  • Breathing deeply will help to relax the muscles surrounding your spine.
  • The places that are most uncomfortable indicate your problem areas.
  • Relax your feet! Allow your legs and feet to fall into a wide "V".
  • Place your arms out to the side, palms up. This will help relax your chest muscles and unroll your shoulders.
  • When you move on the board, slip your thumbs into the handle to secure that the board does not move when you slide up

 

THE LENGTH OF TIME YOU REMAIN IN EACH AREA WILL BE DICTATED BY WHAT YOUR BODY NEEDS.

• A maximum of about 5 minutes per area is sufficient to make the corrections.

• It's OK to nod off while on the board, but sleeping is a no-no. You will wake up sore if you stay in one area more than 10 minutes or so.

• If your spine feels too stretched or PurePosture is too uncomfortable, place a pillow under your head. If the discomfort remains, possibly the risers are too tall for you. We can replace them with a more appropriate size.

- If you find your spine isn't getting a good enough stretch, the risers are probably not as high as you need. Time to order the next size up.

- You can use PurePosture daily, even more than once a day.  

• You may feel a bit dizzy after you sit up. This is normal and will resolve after a few seconds.


 

PurePosture for the Neck

 

PurePosture can also be used as a traction device to extend your neck. It is helpful if the muscles, especially where the top of your neck meets your head, feel tight. Some people find this helps to relieve "tension" type headaches.

 

Position yourself as shown. Without moving your head, wiggle your body slightly down (toward your feet), automatically tucking in your chin. No longer than 2 minutes. Relax your shoulders keeping them down and comfortable.

 

How to Change the Risers

 

Removing the risers is simple. Usually you can gently wiggle them out. However, sometimes humidity can swell the wood making them stick.

Flip the board over and push on the riser pegs. You can also gently tap them out using a golf tee and a hammer.
