We've found some testimonials from happy customers and have taken the liberty to bring back some old, fond memories.
"All my life I have had 'rounded shoulders' and not a very good standing position, since the first use of Posture Pal my shoulders have pulled back and I have noticed the strain I felt in my neck and shoulders disappear. I am more upright and my chest size seems to have increased because it is pushed out now instead of being pulled under. The first time I used Posture Pal I also noticed an adjustment in my TMJ within moments of standing up. Posture Pal is extremely comfortable and I find it very easy to completely relax and drift off to sleep often. Wonderful product!!! I now recommend it to my patients who are also noting changes in their posture - even from the first time of use!" -- Ian J Holmes, Bowen Therapist, Bradford, England
"I just received the Posture Pal today - and I absolutely love it. I knew what my neck has looked like since chiropractic school, and have been using all sorts of ideas trying to restore the curve to my neck. I had a lateral film taken a few months back, and to my dismay, my neck was still as straight as it was when I left school three years ago. Anyways, after using it for 20 minutes on my lunch hour today, I could notice a difference already -- so I had my CA take a lateral film to see if anything changed. I couldn't believe it For the first time in years, there was a curve! Obviously, I still have work to do, but I was amazed to see a physical change on x-ray after one use!" -- Dr. Lisa Olszewski, Chelsea, MI
"After so many years of physical abuse playing in the NBA, my body was really sore and tired. Then I discovered Posture Pal. What a relief! For the first time in many years my upper body is relaxed and free of pain." -- Wallace Bryant , former NBA Center and Power Forward for the Chicago Bulls, Dallas Mavericks, Los Angeles Clippers, Philadelphia 76er's and Orlando Magic.
"It's working great! My shoulder is no longer hurting and my shoes are wearing properly (the actual sole of the shoe and not the side of the sole). I'm not a chiropractor, just a person who found your web site while searching for answers to my problem which I had figured out was impingement of my right shoulder because of improper posture because of the FHP. I no longer walk with my face pointing downwards, and I now see more of the world :) I do have to remind myself about my mental habit if I starting seeing my shoes again when walking." -- Chris Osborn, Long Beach, CA
"I have been using Posture Pal daily for about a month now in conjunction with physical therapy, and the results are amazing. My posture has improved remarkably, and my neck and shoulder aches are almost completely gone. This is probably one of the only products in the market that treats FHP problems with convenience, ease, and efficacy. I strongly recommend it." -- L. Pichoo, Malaysia

"As a chiropractor, in addition to adjusting, I utilize several different types of devices for spinal and postural correction. I try them all myself so that I can relate to what the patient is experiencing and also because I too have a degree of "Forward Head Posture". Now, the Posture Pal is the only one I use for myself for 20 minutes, 5 days a week. Some of the devices I use are fairly aggressive and not tolerated well by some patients however I haven't found anyone who can't tolerate the Posture Pal. The number of patients I have using the Posture Pal is growing weekly." -- Dr. Bob Pull, Arroyo Grande, CA

I would like to say how fantastic the PosturePal is that I recently bought from you.
As a classically trained singer I have great awareness of diaphragmatic breathing and understand the importance breathing plays, not only for singing but for our overall well being and health.
From the first time I used it, I noticed a significant increase in my lung capacity.
My singing teacher also noticed a huge difference in my singing and was astounded by the massive improvements in my breathing. My singing has become much more controlled and powerful and this has only happened since I started using the Posture Pal just a few weeks ago.
I have also noticed improvements in my overall posture and mobility in my neck, shoulders and back. The best money I have ever spent! Thanks for everything. -- Jenny Mason-Briggs - Bradford, West Yorkshire, England

"I had a job for electric welder been 40 years made my head, shoulder and back bent forward always. Only 2 month after I used the Posture Pal then everything was improved much. I am sure now it would be my best pal in life." -- Lianzhang Song, a retired worker of Dalian shipyard, Liaoning, China
"What I like about Posture Pal is that it provides a stretch to the pectoral girdle and an extension mobilization to the thoracic spine. The majority of my patients present with forward head, rounded shoulders, and excessively kyphotic thoracic spine. This results from extended time sitting with your arms forward as occurs with computer use. Posture Pal is ideal for reversing the effects that gravity has on the body all day. It is also useful for people who cannot get up and down from the floor as it can easily be used on the bed." -- Dr. Josiah Anderson DPT, Los Angeles, CA
"I have found your Posture Pal to be very helpful in making my posture better and lessening my pain. I am in Florida on vacation now and I took it with me! At first I found it hard to take the time to use it, but soon learned that I felt better when I did." -- Virginia Whitham, Saranac, MI

"I ordered a Posture Pal to evaluate recently. I have been using it and suggested my wife should give a try as well. One day I was laying on it and asked my wife how she was feeling (earlier in the day she had a headache that was not improving even after a specific chiropractic adjustment). She replied that the headache was still bad. I said she needed to take care of her reversed neck curve and start using the Posture Pal regularly and that she should start right now. I brought the Posture Pal to her to use while she lay on the couch. After the 20 minutes I asked her how she was feeling and she exclaimed that the headache was 95% gone! While laying on the Posture Pal you can feel the posture improving pressure on specific parts of your body; neck, shoulders, thoracic spine and chest muscles. The head is in a mildly extended position and should improve forward head posture with regular use." -- Karl R.O.S. Johnson D.C., Shelby Township, MI
