Good neck posture on a saddle seat facilitates blood flow to the brain.
Poor posture interferes with blood flow to the brain. Up to 25 % of total body circulation flows to the head. The blood vessels travel through a narrow space between the neck vertebrae, throat and outer neck muscles, primarily a muscle called the Sternocleidomastoid. Static postures and poor positioning of the head or neck can tense these muscles and reduce circulation through these vital blood vessels. The primary vein (Jugular) that returns blood and waste products from the brain back into the body also travels through the Sternocleidomastoid muscle. If the muscle is tense, circulation slows and blood pressure in the brain can increase. This is thought to be a common cause of headaches. Good neck posture can be attained only when the whole back is in a good posture. The Salli Saddle Chair insures proper spinal alignment which facilitates blood flow to the brain.
