Alignment in Co. Wicklow
Help on the road to healing
by Aisling Cronin
Ria Cusack is a kinesiologist, postural alignment specialist and fitness practitioner, based in Greystones, Co. Wicklow. She is passionate about helping people to achieve a sense of ease and balance in their bodies and in their lives. Taking an individual approach with each client is key to her success, as she explained to me.
‘My work is strongly focused on helping people to get themselves out of a state of pain, and helping them become the best version of themselves they can possibly be. This often involves assigning homework! If clients ask me for help with their fitness, they’ll get fifteen minutes of homework per day, if they want to have their posture corrected, they’ll be given an eCise Menu to do every day, and if they come to me for a kinesiology consultation … guess what? Yep, homework again!’
This piece of homework might be a mindful exercise to tone down your stress levels, or adding something healthful to your diet. It might involve removing something to which you are sensitive, doing simple exercises to rebalance your left-right brain connections, or rubbing a few specific Chapman’s neuro-lymphatic points to help speed up your recovery. The sky is the limit!
In addition to taking on individual clients, Ria runs weekly postural alignment and fitness classes of no more than four people, to ensure that each participant receives plenty of individual attention. She considers herself ‘the luckiest woman alive’ to be in a position to empower people and assist them with their health.
