What Is Activ8 Posture?

We provide a natural, whole-body approach to posture therapy that helps people fix their pain and stay active. Posture, for us, is not only how you stand and sit but includes the ability of your body to move freely without limitations or pain. We offer virtual and in-person therapy sessions with our experienced therapists, who guide clients through personalized therapy plans that focus on getting to the root cause of issues.

How does Activ8 Posture's approach differ from other methods?

Activ8 Posture's approach to posture therapy differs from other methods in several key ways.

First, Activ8 Posture takes a whole-body approach, meaning that the therapist will assess and treat the entire body, not just the area where you are experiencing pain. This helps to address the root cause of your issues and prevent future problems from occurring.

Second, Activ8 Posture places a strong emphasis on self-help and empowerment, giving clients custom exercise routines to do between therapy sessions. This helps clients to take an active role in their own healing and progress.

Finally, Activ8 Posture therapists take the time to get to know each client and their specific needs, offering personalized therapy plans that are tailored to each individual. This approach is different from other methods that may simply focus on symptoms and offer generic, protocol-based treatments.

We help clients that range from children to seniors and from couch potatoes to professional athletes who are looking for pain relief, posture correction, functional training, and optimal health and wellness. We are able to help a number of chronic pain conditions, posture dysfunctions, and movement limitations because of our whole body approach. Our team of experienced posture therapist offer individualized posture therapy plans, making it a great option for those looking to take control of their health.

Can I receive therapy virtually or do I have to come in person?

Yes, we offer both virtual and in-person therapy sessions. If you're near our Los Angeles or Boston clinics, you can choose to come in for in-person sessions. If you're not near one of our clinics, or if you prefer virtual sessions, our therapists are equipped to offer therapy via videoconferencing (Zoom, FaceTime, etc). This means you can receive the same personalized, whole-body therapy from the comfort of your own home. No matter which option you choose, our therapists will work with you to develop a custom plan that meets your specific needs and helps you achieve your goals.

What is the process of therapy like at Activ8 Posture?

The process of therapy at Activ8 Posture is designed to be personalized and effective. It consists of three steps to getting started with our 8-Week IMPACT Program:

  1. Discovery: During this step, you will have a phone or Zoom call with one of our expert therapists to discuss your issues and how Activ8 Posture can help you. Get started with a phone call or schedule a Free Consultation.
  2. Assessment: During your first clinic visit or virtual session, your therapist will perform a posture analysis and functional assessment to find the root cause of your issues.
  3. Custom Plan: Based on the results of your assessment, your posture therapist will work with you to develop a unique routine of exercises that will evolve as your body adapts and changes.

Throughout the process, your therapist will listen to your needs and concerns, and work with you to develop a plan that is tailored to your individual needs. The goal is to not only help you become pain-free, but to also feel confident, healthy, and vibrant in your body.

How many therapy sessions will I need?

The first session is a great start in understanding what your body is doing that may be causing you pain, poor posture, and limitations. Limiting yourself to one session, however, will not give you the guidance to take advantage of the progress you make. By far, the majority of our clients recognize changes in their body in the first few weeks, and doing a series of sessions with our experienced posture therapists will ensure that you continue to capitalize on the positive changes.

You can choose between packages of 8 or 16 sessions, based on what works best for your situation. In the beginning of your journey (our 8-Week IMPACT Program), we like to see you once or twice a week to help get you out of pain by restoring proper movement and function as quickly as possible. We also troubleshoot any questions you have and make sure you're able to perform the exercises correctly.

Pain relief is not the only goal we have in working with you. As you progress through your sessions, we expect the conversation to evolve from discussing pain and limitations to your activity goals and helping you better identify your compelling future in your pain-free, restored body.

Can Activ8 Posture help with specific conditions or injuries?

Our whole-body approach to posture therapy can help with a wide range of conditions and injuries. Our therapists are trained to assess and treat the root cause of issues, not just the symptoms. This means that whether you are experiencing back pain, neck pain, headaches, or any other pain or discomfort, Activ8 Posture can help.

Our therapists will work with you to develop a personalized plan that addresses your specific needs and helps you achieve your goals. That being said, if you have a specific condition or injury, we recommend discussing it with your therapist by calling the clinic nearest you or during your free 30-minute virtual consultation to make sure that Activ8 Posture is the right fit for you.

If you choose to schedule a therapy session, the therapist will guide you through the process and help you choose the right package for your needs. Whether you prefer virtual or in-person sessions, our therapists are here to help you get started on your journey to better posture and a pain-free life.

What will I need to do the program?

For your sessions, you will want to wear comfortable clothing that you can do exercises in without restriction. Because we are doing posture assessments and functional movement screens, shorts and a t-shirt or athletic top are preferred so we can see your body moving.

For completing your exercises at home, minimal equipment is needed. You may need a yoga strap, blocks, a sturdy standard chair, or other props that are generally easy to find or acquire.

And, of course, a good attitude and a growth mindset go a long way. We'll help with that as needed. 😉

How are Activ8 Posture Therapists trained?

Our Activ8 Posture therapists are passionate about helping people and anatomical geeks. Along with a wide range of experience in the health, wellness, and rehabilitation fields, our therapists hold degrees and backgrounds in kinesiology, biomechanics, athletic training, sports medicine, strength and conditioning, sports performance, along with various certifications in movement therapies and training. We value continuous improvement and using current, evidence-based practices, and as such we undergo ongoing trainings to give our clients the best results.

How much does therapy cost at Activ8 Posture?

At Activ8 Posture, we work with you to determine the best program to suit your needs, time and budget. The cost of the individualized posture therapy program you choose varies based on what is the best fit. Our 8-Week IMPACT Program is where all new clients start and can be done once per week, twice per week, or more. Pricing is the same whether you do in-person session in Boston or Los Angeles, or see us through Virtual sessions.

To get a more accurate estimate of the cost of therapy that best suits your situation, we recommend booking a FREE Consultation with one of our posture therapists. During the call, the therapist will discuss your specific needs and goals and provide you with best-fit options for you.

New Client IMPACT Program: Our 8-week IMPACT program at one session per week is $1,598, or two session per week at $2,998. Payment is typically made upon enrollment but we can work with you as needed. Individual sessions are $249.

Existing Client THRIVE Program: The goal with the THRIVE program is to move you into the "fun zone" as you move beyond pain relief programming. The fun zone includes the exercise, fitness, wellness, or other health goals that we can help you achieve or maintain. Depending on your situation and what best suits you, we have monthly membership options or individual session pricing.

You can schedule online or contact the Los Angeles or Boston clinic for more information.

We also offer an 8-week Digital Photo Therapy option for those without access to the technology or bandwidth to do virtual sessions. This option does not include dedicated session time with a therapist, and uses email only for communication. Digital Photo Therapy is $880 for 8 routines or $129 for individual routines.

Please note that while the cost of therapy may vary, our commitment to providing personalized, effective therapy remains the same, no matter which option you choose.

Does Activ8 Posture take insurance?

Since our goal is not to just treat your symptoms but get to the root cause behind the problems, what we do does not currently align with what insurance companies are willing to cover. In many cases, however, you can use your FSA or HSA, or we can provide you with the necessary information for you to submit directly to your insurer.
