What is The Egoscue Method?
Founded by Pete Egoscue in the 70s, The Egoscue Method is postural therapy. We believe that both chronic and acute pain is due to misalignment in the body as it loses its designed posture. The human body is designed to move! However, with most of society becoming more and more sedentary, the body develops musculoskeletal dysfunctions and compensations. When those are present, pain and injury set in or are lurking right around the corner. The Egoscue Method restores the body back to its designed posture, alleviating pain and returning you back to an active, pain-free lifestyle.
How does The Egoscue Method work?
The Egoscue Method uses a series of gentle exercises and stretches to return musculoskeletal balance and symmetry to your body. It’s no secret that muscles move bones. If your body has lost its designed posture, it’s because muscles have moved your bones into a new, dysfunctional position. Pain is the body’s way of alerting you to the fact that your body isn’t aligned—and therefore isn’t moving—properly. Through The Egoscue Method, your muscles will be reeducated and reminded how they need to function in order to maintain proper alignment.
How much does it cost?
Method menu will take 30 minutes to two hours to complete. Although not everyone needs two hours, those who do are in so much pain they will do their menu daily, regardless of how long it takes.
On the financial side of things, we offer different therapy packages and experiences: You can work face to face with a therapist either in person or via digital therapy. We also offer online therapy. Talk with your therapist to determine which option suits you best and get an idea of how many visits you may need.

Yes, you need to do your full menu at least once per day, in the given order. One exercise sets up the next, so sequencing is important. Outside of that time, you can do any exercises that you feel are beneficial for your body.
