I am very, very glad that I went through the process to become a Certified Posture Specialist. The material that I learned was invaluable…It taught me details of the anatomy of the spine and the biomechanics of the spine. It also taught me the layers of muscles that are important in keeping correct posture. .. However, the most important reason I'm glad I am a Certified Posture Specialist is that it gives me confidence in improving people's posture… The clients I help also know that I have taken the steps to become a posture expert so they really embrace what I teach. Almost all my clients (and potential clients) know they need better posture. Now I have one more credential that sets me apart from competition. People are always impressed when I say I'm a Certified Posture Specialist through the National Posture Institute.   - Nick Rainey from Provo, UT (Owner of Body4Change & Doctor of Physical Therapy student)
