Welcome to The Posture Theory website


Welcome to the second website for The Posture Theory. I hope you find it informative and useful.

You can read my introduction on the this page.

The Posture Theory was first published in June 1980 as an essay called “The Matter of Framework”, and as a book of 11 editions, between 1994 and 2000, and the first website began in about 1994 and can be seen here.

I provide facts, evidence, and proof of my ideas from a wide variety of sources, including reliable and verifiable information from history, and from the best medical literature and research Journals in the world.
