What’s The Best Posture Brace I Can Recommend?
Maybe a good posture brace with a proven history isn’t quite the most amazing gift. The gift of pain reduction, improved posture and happier family member or friends is a gift which can be life changing on every level.
When we experience chronic discomfort or pain every day, it can change us from being happy balanced individuals to not such happy and balanced people…
Buying a good quality, well designed posture brace can save you hundreds of dollars in medical, physio, chiropractic appointments, along with a few life style changes. As you know, for me, mine was a life saver.

The Bax-U is completely adjustable by tightening or loosening straps. This is a light posture corrector you can wear to the office, at the gym, at home. anywhere.
Comfort Posture Corrector Brace
Maybe you prefer a more solidly supportive posture brace such as the Comfort Posture Brace. This stretchy, cotton lined brace offers complete back, shoulder & abominable support to improve a number of posture & physical issues from correcting rounded shoulders to supporting those with kyphosis. The CPB is an excellent all round brace which is fully adjustable.
BSN Medical Pro-lite Deluxe Clavicle Support
Providing strong shoulder and upper back support for men and women, the BSN Medical Pro-lite Deluxe Clavicle Support Brace is a backpack style which you can wear all day. It’s a more bulky brace designed with very soft padding to give posture corrective support, brace shoulder instability and aligns shoulders into improved posture to reduce back /shoulder pain.
Relax Sore Muscles With A Self Massage Machine. Sooo Clever…
I don’t know about you, but I love a good muscle relaxing, make me feel better massage after a long day, or if I have been overly emotional! Tight and tense muscles do not a happy Ellie make! After one of those days, I love having a hot shower and sinking down in my fave chair with a self massager to get in and loosen those super tight muscles in my neck – there are actually pea sized lumps of tension there sometimes, shoulders and middle back.
After 20 mins of being pummeled and shiatsued, I feel emotionally and physically better. What’s more, I have noticed I sleep so much better that night.
Conclusion: Relaxed muscles = relaxed rejuvenating sleep = happy Ellie the next morning = happy family:)
