Our Movements Determine Our Posture

Tensegrity (tension with integrity) is a structural principle in which a system’s stability is created through its own balanced tensions.

The human body is a tensegrity structure organized by fascia. Fascia is a web of connective tissue that suspends the body and allows muscles to move freely. Our movements determine the tension of our fascia and therefore determine our posture.

In the illustrations below, our fascia is represented by the rubber bands and our bones are represented by the sticks.

Symptoms of poor posture include:

  • Headaches
  • Lack of Concentration
  • Limited Flexibility
  • Neck, Shoulder, Back Pain
  • Fatigue
  • Respiratory Issues
  • Circulatory Issues
  • Digestive Issue
