Michelle Joyce, MS, has been a featured posture and ergonomics expert on TV shows across the US, and has taught workshops in 9 different countries. She has a rich background in helping people to achieve good health.
She was a professional dancer for 15 years, but her terrible back pain began to threaten her career. After trying every imaginable remedy, she finally discovered Posture Therapy and has since devoted herself to spreading the word about the benefits of healthy posture.
Her unique approach addresses the emotional aspects of posture, and she believes that stress and unhealthy posture are strongly connected. She uses her Master’s in Counseling to help clients break old habits and create sustainable new ones. After all, simply telling people to “sit up straight” will not help them to make permanent life changes.
Michelle has studied many aspects of posture, getting certified in Occupational Ergonomics, Thai Massage and Reposturing Dynamics (a form of stretching therapy). The end result is a unique and effective method of permanently changing your posture that cleverly combines psychology, ergonomics, stretching and relaxation.
She is also the author of the children’s book Posture Posey and the Slumpyback Goblins, and has recently released a book for adults called Posture Makeover. Her app The 30 Day Posture Makeover has reached people all over the world, and she has a large following for the posture lessons on her YouTube channel. She currently runs a private practice in Eugene, Oregon, dedicated to giving posture makeovers to people of all ages.
