Shift Your Posture

Scoliosis Therapy - 3Dshifts Method

Scoliosis clients take steps to improve their alignment, breathing and core control with the guidance of the 3DShifts Method

As a Scoliosis Therapist, I am passionate about helping my clients improve their alignment, breathing, and core control through the 3DShifts Method. It’s disheartening to see that the traditional process for scoliosis treatment has remained largely unchanged for years – monitoring, bracing, and surgery.

But with the Shift Your Posture (Scoliosis) 12 Week Transformation Program, my clients have experienced remarkable improvements in just a short period of time – looking better, breathing better, feeling better, and moving better. And with monthly maintenance for up to a year, the benefits of the program are sustained.

The 3DShifts Method is a comprehensive approach that takes into consideration a variety of sciences and research, with the main goal of working with you – your unique curve, your unique needs. Whether your scoliosis is structural or functional, causes pain or not, and whether it’s been with you since birth or developed later in life, I can help you work towards reducing your curve and improving your quality of life.

I use a variety of techniques, including the Schroth Method, Scientific Exercises Approach to Scoliosis (SEAS), Myoskeletal Alignment Therapy, and even whole body vibration and eye exercises for neurological changes. My clients end their sessions with whole body vibration, which engages 90% of muscles just by standing on it and helps with balance and alignment.

But ultimately, what makes the 3DShifts Method effective is your dedication and communication. I work closely with my clients, whether they choose to work with me in-person, intensively, or online, to ensure that they are getting the most out of the program and seeing sustained results.



About Tammy

While M.A.T. gave remarkable results with reducing pain in scoliosis my belief was we can do better. 

Myoskeletal Alignment Therapy is a the foundation of the treatment. While in yoga teacher training class we focused on intention of the body and breathing.  This combination of Breathing, Myoskeletal Alignment and Yoga infuses a great recipe for scoliosis therapy.  It is a gentle movement that works with clients from 9-89 and reduces the curve.  

Clients feel taller, more balanced and less pain in only one session.  



Posture Images and Assessments

We begin with a visual image of your posture. These clothed posture image photos are taken with state of the art software. They will be analyzed to identify posture and movement patterns. Functional Posture Health Scores will also give an assessment of how far you have come in the transformation. Multiple images are take during the 12 week program to capture your healing progress and changes.

Alignment and Breathwork

I use a blended method of myoskeletal alignment and breathwork. This combines orthopedic massage, assessing through movement, activating muscles not used often while taking the strain off overused muscles.  Alignment, gentle stretching and strengthening work begins on the massage table. Together we create a more unified balanced body in each session. 

Conditioning and Exercise

Exercises for our posture are much more subtle than traditional exercise and require a different level of focus. You need to know the right exercises to help you stabilize at this stage of your life with activity and build better posture. We also discuss Posture Habit Re-Education Activities we perform every day have an impact on our posture. This picture is an example using the Shroth Bar.

Whole Body Vibration Therapy
We end our sessions with vibration therapy to complete the re-aligment of the body and the changes we have made.   
Whole body vibration therapy benefits are: 
  • Improved balance
  • Increased muscle strength
  • Improved bone health 
  • Greater flexibility
  • Decreased muscle soreness 
  • Faster weight loss

Myoskeletal Alignment Therapy: Reduce Progression of Scoliosis

The main goal of SHIFT Myoskeletal Alignment Therapy is to prevent scoliosis from advancing and improve movement, reducing wear and tear in joints. We work together with your body, movement and breathing in addition to your lifestyle outside of the SHIFT.

Results depend on your age, bone maturity and the degree of curvature. Managing scoliosis with MAT is an option for patients who want to avoid surgery. Some exercises are done on the massage table, with Schroth bars for fine-tuning movements of specific areas. Every movement in your treatment plan is customized to your needs and curvature. The length and frequency of treatment largely depends on the age, tolerance, and extent of scoliosis as well as your goals and compliance with home exercises.
