This is a brand new edition of a successful book which, as one of the first movement therapists and bodyworkers, encouraged people to look into the causes of movement problems rather than focusing treatment on physical symptoms. The book explains how to measure and evaluate posture and provides tools for doing so. The author presents her unique perspective on body mechanics – Aston Mechanics – a departure from the standard model of posture and offers many opportunities to practice observation and analysis skills based on this paradigm.
Judith Aston-Linderoth is widely recognized as a pioneer in the art and science of kinetics for her discovery of the Aston paradigm and consequent development of Aston® Kinetics. Aston Kinetics is an educational system of movement, bodywork, fitness, and ergonomics that aims to treat each persons body as unique and customizes the work to match. Rather than enforcing physical symmetry, Aston Kinetics seeks to recognize which asymmetries are natural to a persons body and how to maximize their use when needed. Early in her career, from 1963 to 1972, Aston taught movement, physical education, and dance for performing artists and athletes at Long Beach Community College. In 1968, at the request of Dr. Ida Rolf, she developed the movement education program for Rolfing SI and taught this program for nearly a decade. Aston is an author, inventor of an array of ergonomic products, and creator of movement and bodywork programs. She continues to teach Aston Kinetics training and certifcation courses.
