Aston® Postural Assessment – Second edition

A New Paradigm for Observing and Evaluating Body Patterns

£35.00 GBP / $45.00 USD Free delivery in the UK and USA

This is a brand new edition of a successful book which was one of the first to encourage movement therapists and bodyworkers to look at the postural causes of movement problems, rather than focusing treatment just on the physical symptoms. The book explains how to measure and assess posture and provides tools for doing so. The author introduces her unique perspective on body mechanics – Aston-Mechanics® – a departure from the standard model of body posture, and provides many opportunities to practice observation and analytical skills based on this paradigm.

Key features

  • The author is widely recognized as a pioneer in the art and science of kinetics for her discovery of the Aston® Paradigm and consequent development of the many forms of movement, bodywork, fitness and ergonomics of Aston® Kinetics.
  • She created and developed Aston® Kinetics as an educational system of movement and bodywork. Rather than enforcing physical symmetry, Aston® Kinetics seeks to recognize the asymmetries that are natural to a person’s body and to achieve the best movement possible.
  • Her acute ability to ‘see’ the body in stillness and motion and to train others to see, move and exercise, established her discipline of bodywork and movement training that is known as Aston® Kinetics.
  • The book is highly illustrated with over 300 photographs and 150 line drawings. All the illustrations are new for this edition.
