Episode Summary

In today’s episode of the SHE Talks Health podcast, I had the pleasure of sitting down with Rachna Patel, a posture therapist with an incredible story. Rachna shares her journey from going to law school in the UK to discovering her true passion for helping women heal with posture therapy for chronic pain.

We dive deep into how posture impacts our overall health, including our hormones and pelvic function. By tuning into our bodies and noticing where we could use more alignment, we can start to heal from chronic pain, hormonal imbalances and even trauma. Rachna shares a simple balance test that anyone can do at home to start assessing their own posture and identifying areas that may need attention.

She also shares helpful tips for managing menstrual cramps and pain leading up to your period using her posture therapy techniques. If you’re interested in learning more about posture therapy and how it can help you heal and improve your quality of life, don’t miss out on this impactful episode.
