Stand Tall – Dr. Tim Brown

Since the beginning of time, we have been standing, walking, running, and always moving. But in today’s world, we spend most of our time sitting at a desk, in a car, or on the couch. This excessive sitting results in the chest muscles tightening, causing the shoulders to rotate forward internally while the muscles of the upper back weaken– not healthy and definitely not a good look.

Posture affects everything. With great posture, our minds and bodies get energized and flow with optimal health. With poor posture, our minds and bodies are tortured by fatigue, migraines, back pain, neck pain, depression, poor circulation/digestion, and sluggish thinking and movement.

If we really want to live life to the fullest and build a powerful foundation for our health, we have to understand the importance of posture and train our bodies to Stand Tall.

Dr. Brown and IntelliSkin are on a mission to radically transform the way we think, speak, and act about our posture and Wellness Force could not be more stoked to be a voice for this change, this awareness, that our world needs right now.

About Tim Brown

IntelliSkin inventor, Dr. Tim Brown, grew to understand his future creation while working as the medical director on the ASP surf and AVP volleyball tours during the 1980’s. As an early innovator in functional taping, he developed a hybrid kinesiology technique known as SPRT (Specific Proprioceptive Response Taping). Used on everyone from Olympians to NFL players, the technique quickly became a staple in the athletic world as it allowed injured athletes to compete despite their injuries. Dr. Brown’s instinctive techniques got athletes asking for taping remedies so often, that he needed something that could do the job when he wasn’t there. Many late nights of trial and error using remnants of old wetsuits and rash guards, he devised a wearable technology that mimicked his taping technique. Dr. Brown’s goal was to take what he had learned in designing and come up with a comfortable, Smart Compression shirt that would clinically improve posture and spinal alignment for everyone, whether you’re an elite athlete or a weekend warrior. Dr. Brown’s ultimate goal is to help everybody to look better, feel better and perform better. We continue to pursue that goal every day.
