LW, therapist - came with pain in neck/back She later reported that she had slept "like a log" after the session
"Feels lighter in sitting with more space in my chest. Jaw feels different. My feet feel more 'planted' and both legs feel more supportive/underneath me. Walking is smoother"
CC, teacher, came with pain in sternum and felt walking was 'plodding'
"Foot feels less turned-out. More contact [with the floor] with right foot, especially on the outside. I'm walking - not 'tippy-toeing' and can feel more contact with my heels."
SP, client who had surgery on knee resulting in foot 'drifting out'
"My upper back feels as though someone's been working! - side turning is improved, more weight in my heels, spine feels straighter and chest more open"
FA, professional, client who wanted to explore postural improvements and maintain progress after frozen shoulder a few month previously
