"[...] Chronic back pain is one of the most pervasive, misunderstood and under-serviced health issue in the world today"

 (WHO - World Health Organisation)

For most,


Back Pain and other neuromuscular skeletal issues are short-term events that subside completely. But for the unlucky patients who have failed all previous treatments, Chronic Pain with its unresolved physical and psychological issues disrupt nearly all aspects of their life. Surgery, addictive pain killers and years of costly pain management are no magic bullets. 

When it comes to healing chronic back, joint or nerve pain, a symptoms-focused approach is not enough...

With the permission of Sylviane's patient. Thank you !

Sylviane James Introduces
Integrative Postural Therapy®


to address persistent back and Hip pain and their muscular-skeletal dysfunctions

“Chronic Pain affects 1.7 billion people worldwide, it doesnt have to be so and can even be prevented "

— Sylviane James —


Chronic pain means postural dysfunctions and faulty biomechanics have now set in... A symptoms-focused approach is not enough anymore. Our Posture is influenced by both our mindset and unresolved physical injuries.   Postural interventions to restore alignment of the spine and joints, muscle balance and sound movement patterns are paramount, but sometimes Psychological interventions are necessary as they can be potent barriers to healing and sometimes are the underlying root cause of the chronic pain in the first place

Unresolved Chronic Back, Discs, Joint and Nerve pain demands that we become more than Therapists, we have to become Detectives! 


"It's inevitable! 
Body and Mind are connected through the nervous system. Our Posture and Biomechanics tell the story of our past physical injuries, traumas and our past experiences,  successes and failures..."
Sylviane James


Our Body is designed to create muscle tension as a reflex reaction to Physical and Psychological stress

Our body is designed to create muscle tension as a reflex reaction to stress and threatening situations, whether the source of stress is physical or psychological. This short-term response is a protective mechanism steered by the ANS ( autonomic nervous system). It triggers physical reactions we all know as the "fight-flight" response in an attempt to resolve the threat. In doing so, it uses the accumulated tension or energy and relaxes the muscular system... We can now move on with our lives. 

But what if the stress or threat is not resolved?

Unresolved, constant physical or psychological stressors keep the muscular system stuck in the "freeze" mode and affect our body's functions. 

Chronic back, joints, discs and nerve pain are part of a greater story many therapists and doctors often overlook.

Stressors such as unresolved injuries, faulty training, health issues, Post-surgery issues but also constant psychosocial social stress and past trauma provoke unwanted feelings thoughts and beliefs, intolerable sensations and experiences that translate into chronic muscle tension,  postural dysfunctions and eventually spine, joints and nerve issues.

These chronic conditions in turn amplify psychological stress. 

Chronic Pain is a different beast altogether

"We need to look at the entire being experiencing pain

rather than just the pain experienced by that person"

Sylviane James

"I wanted my patients to understand that persistent or recurring physical complaints are often intertwined with psychological factors. That's why I've developed Integrative Postural Therapy, a comprehensive approach that combines the benefits of neuromuscular skeletal and postural therapy with social and psychological interventions" Sylviane James

Integrative Postural Therapy®

This hybrid methodology uses the best and latest in neuromuscular skeletal therapy and biomechanics together with innovative postural interventions and any associated psychological and emotional issues

What to expect


Integrative Postural Therapy helps untangle a lifetime of unconscious physical and psychosocial habits downloaded into protective postural and muscular patterns. It benefits people suffering from persistent back pain, joints, discs and nerve issues.
