Postural Alignment At The Almablu Wellness Centre, Almar Jesolo, Italy
Even the slightest slouch over a computer for a few hours a day can contribute to a bad posture. It’s a familiar problem for most of us and can cause stress to bones, ligaments, joints and muscles – contributing to a number of health issues. With this in mind, experts at the Almablu Wellness Centre at Almar Jesolo, Italy, have created a wellness package specifically aimed at re-educating the body to maintain a correct and healthy posture.
The wellness team, along with Fitness Instructor and Health Specialist Marco Viale, have created The Sun & The Sand package which aims to bring balance to the body and mind. “We have combined reflexology and targeted TCM-influenced massages with personalised sessions of postural training – including free-body and joint-mobility exercises.” Activities are preceded by a static postural analysis session – during which specific problems will be identified – then a bespoke programme is created for each guest.
“As it’s not possible to continuously monitor posture, people with a sedentary lifestyle – who spend many hours sitting at their desk or have an unbalanced walk, can suffer with problems of their entire musculoskeletal system. In contrast, sportspeople and athletes at a competitive level suffer from pains related to their specific activity and the unnatural positions that modify their bodies’ natural posture. Our goal is, therefore, to bring the muscles back into balance and restore optimal distribution of gravity throughout the body, thus improving breathing, circulation and digestion – eliminating back pain, relieving headaches and reducing the risk of accidents. If it is true that the mind can influence the posture, then acting on it will.”
The package is available for a minimum stay of three nights from 26th August to 3rd November and includes access to the Almablu Spa’s wellness area, the beach and the heated outdoor pool; use of the gym and access to group lessons of Pilates, postural training, Tai Chi, Hatha and Ashtanga Vinyasa Yoga (upon availability) and free bicycle rental. Rates start from €280 per night in double occupancy (including stay and buffet breakfast at the Mediterra Restaurant).
