Find a better way to work and play.
By addressing our bad postural habits WorkingPosture can reverse the damage already done and can prevent getting into trouble in the first place.
What is WorkingPosture?
It irons out the kinks and tension and helps you learn a new and graceful way to move and function. You can end up moving with more grace, more flexibility and less pain, even if the existing pain is longstanding.
These days Medical professionals are very able take care of any pathology in your body. But what happens when the pain/discomfort from work keeps coming back or maybe you are told there is no pathology?
A different strategy is required—this is where WorkingPosture created something revolutionary and has been changing the fate of Dental and office personnel for over 25 years.
Workshops + Small Classes
Who does WorkingPosture benefit?
All members of the dental team, dentists, nurses, techicians, admin staff.
All members of regular office especially good for those who sit in front of a computer all day or CEOs sitting in meetings all day.
Sports people who want to perform better, using pelvis well, using correct sequence of muscles for performance, using whole body spiral rotation, using good core organisation (not by contracting core but aligning core) to run faster, swing your golf club better, jump higher and avoid sport injuries from incorrect use of body organisation. Improve sensory awareness of your body to understand how you can do better and to protect from injury.
Anyone who has chronic niggles, pain or discomfort that has not been amenable to other forms of healing. Especially after serious accidents and after your rehab period is completed.
When you have an injury your muscles brace around the injury to stop further damage but these restrictions remain in your NEUROMUSCULAR BODY IMAGE unless you learn how to unravel it.
WorkingPosture is accessed in 2 modes
Classes or personal sessions depending on what suits best
Meet Dr Penelope Jones
Dr Penelope Jones comes originally from a background in dentistry. Until 2000 she spent 25 years as a successful Specialist Endodontist in Sydney after having been in General Practice in Sydney and London for some years. She has also worked for many years as a lecturer/tutor in the Medical and Dental Faculties of Sydney University
In 1992 she completed 4 years of training in Neuroplasticity and neurological development at La Trobe University (Melbourne). She then became a certified practitioner and teacher of the Feldenkrais Method. Moshe Feldenkrais is now acknowledged as one of the founders of and a master of working with Neuroplasticity. (Norman Doige-How the Brain Heals)
Dr Jones now uses this brilliant work of neuroplasticity combined with her personal experience of the difficulties the dental team face in their own bodies as the basis of WorkingPosture. She created a unique program 20years ago called “Back and Body Care for the Dental Team” and began teaching this to the the Dental Faculty at Sydney University.
Since then she has developed the program to include a rich wealth of tools to help anyone who sits or stands all day to work. The program is called “WorkingPosture” and helps people to prevent workplace injury and to recover from any pain and discomfort already present.
The program has now expanded even further. She has incorporated into her program a sophisticated functional understanding of core muscles co-ordinated with pelvic support . To this add the use of spiral movement and you can vastly improve core strength and flexibility creating the foundation of sitting at work with flexibility, co-ordination AND strength.
Workingposture has now expanded to include sportspeople, especially golfers, by smoothing out the golf swing and helping them play better and enjoy the game more.
Dr Jones is now teaching in the Dental faculty of Sydney university, with the Australian Dental Association, in dental practices and businesses around Australia. Recently she has presented her work in the UK to the British Association of Oral Surgeons and to the Bristol Dental School. She returns to Dubai in 2018 to the CAPPMEA conference to again present her work to an international audience of Dentists, Surgeons and Dental Hygienists
Dr Jones is a member of many Professional groups including the Australian Dental Association, the International Pierre Fauchard Academy and the American Academy of Cranio-Facial Pain to whom she presented her work in 2016
In 2000 after a serious car accident Dr Jones had to give up dental practice because of serious neurological injury. Over the following years she used her WorkingPosture skills to successfully rehabilitate her neurological injuries, her chronic musculoskeletal pain and even neuropathic pain This has become a resource for her to help people who have had a similar experience of chronic pain and neurological injury
