In PRI, we are typically focusing on creating a reciprocal and alternating neuromuscular system. However, our neuromuscular system is connected with all the other systems in our body. There appears to be a coupling between autonomic, central, endocrine, and gastrointestinal systems which, in parallel with our neuromuscular system, are also asymmetrical and rhythmically shifting. “Asymmetry, Lateralization, and Alternating Rhythms of the Human Body” has been broken up into 5 parts describing this phenomenon in addition to the story of how and why our asymmetry came to be. It can also be accessed at on my website where I have written on other various topics that relate to PRI.

Due to my fascination of our asymmetrical and lateralized human body, I decided to investigate further into this concept and how it manifests functionally as well as rhythmically throughout our systems.

Consider joining the Postural Restoration Google Group!

We welcome fellow PRI practitioners to join! The purpose of this group is to facilitate the exchange of PRI based concepts, ask advice about challenging cases, post important research articles, and create discussion regarding any PRI ideas or techniques that you care to share.

The Google Group also runs a Book Club and is currently reading The Open Focus Brain by Les Fehmi. Discussion will begin January 12, 2015.

To join, email HeatherCarrDPT@gmail.com. She will then send you an invitation to accept.

There is now a PRI Book Club!

The Postural Restoration Google Group will be discussing Right Hand, Left Hand: The Origins of Asymmetry in Brains, Bodies, Atoms and Cultures by Chris McManus starting on Nov 3, 2014. In order to take part in the fun you must join our google group. The Postural Restoration Google Group is a great forum for PRI practitioners to discuss challenging cases, share important research articles, and simply discuss any topic that is PRI related. 

To become a member please send an email to HeatherCarrDPT@gmail.com and she will send you an invitation to join.
