Sitting down or standing up for long periods of time can affect us negatively in the long run. People look for solutions to their pain problems. Sometimes it’s pills, chiropractors, or a physical therapist. While these are good ideas, these solutions are not only expensive, but also short term.

When I first heard of the Kacelia Tru-Align body system, I was intrigued. It was developed by a chiropractor and is supposed to straighten out our spine to the correct position.

As someone with scoliosis, I could not wait for it to arrive in the mail. When it was delivered, I was experiencing such severe neck and head pain that I was forced to take prescription pain killers around the clock! Ironically, I had started using what I was told to be the best pillow for side sleepers and I believe that’s what caused my neck pain. Maybe I just slept wrong but the pain was bad enough that I was taking prescription pain killers around the clock.

Once the medication kicked in, I was able to open up the package. The first thing I did was unroll the sticky mat that came with it. I inhaled the smell of a plasticy, new car. Not sure if this was healthy, but it did not matter. I was able to mask the smell by using an essential oil. It took me two minutes to set the system up to match my body.

I used deep breathing techniques while I waited for my relief. After a few minutes, I realized that my body felt weird but good. I was not used to the correct posture position, but I immediately felt relief. It’s similar to when I first tried neck traction at home. Felt strange but offered pain relief. It is recommended to use the system for 20 minutes, I could only do 15 but that was okay. When I stood up and walked around, I realized that my headache was gone and did not come back all day! I continue to use the system on a daily basis.

The only negative thing I can think of is that the system is not made out of eco-friendly material such as hemp or other soft materials. This would be a good idea for the company to consider.
However, if you are like me and struggle with headaches, back aches, and scoliosis, I definitely recommend the Kacelia Tru-Align body system.
