Summary

Summary

Today people often accept common ailments such as backache, headache, arthritis, depression and nervous tension as being normal. We may readily believe the discomfort we suffer is a natural consequence of wear and tear, and not realise that we can do something positive about it. In fact, many common ailments stem from stress and a range of muscular tensions caused by bad posture or poor body co-ordination - which can increase as we grow older. Rather than being a natural part of the ageing process, these tensions, if unchecked, can accelerate it and can develop into illness and even cause deformity.
