Anna Forliti is an Egoscue Certified Postural Alignment Specialist who has been helping people reduce and eliminate chronic pain and improve function & performance for 7 years. She helps individuals live, play, be active and pain free.
She believes that alignment and balance are necessary to maintain good health and to promote healing. It is natural to fall out of balance and alignment from time to time. Wellness is being able to recognize when we are out of balance, to listen to what our body is telling us we need to do to move back into balance, and then to be an active participant in our healing.
Anna is passionate about this work, because she has personally experienced chronic pain & it changed her...
Taking her thoughts – leaving her less focused, less patient and less present in her relationships.
Taking her actions – forcing her to change activities and life to accommodate for the pain and limitations.
Taking her time, energy, and money – feeling frustrated and hopeless after trying many things without any lasting relief.
In a sense, the constant stress sucked the pure joy out of each day and left her feeling exhausted.
The GIFT is that this work helped her change her story; take back her life, improve relationships, and return to doing all the things she loves. It is how she regained peace of mind, more joy, and what lead her to enormous growth. It is a lifelong tool for which she is deeply grateful - a gift she wants to share. Anna loves coaching individuals to re-connect, re-align and reduce pain, so they can experience more peace, joy and freedom.

I had back surgery in 2001. I re-injured the same area in 2012 and was told I needed surgery again. Instead, I did rehab programs which got me back to a “serviceable” level. Meaning that every day I would experience anything from mild pain to more significant pain requiring ibuprofen. It frustrated me because while the pain wasn’t debilitating, it was always on my mind. It would cause me to be “off” with friends and family and to avoid certain activities.
I noticed significant improvements immediately after a single month of working with Anna Forliti. And the best part is that after four months, I can honestly say that my back is feeling like it felt before I initially injured it! When I wake up in the morning – the stiffness and pain is gone. It continues to be a fantastic surprise when I wake up each day because when I open my eyes my body is preparing for the old pain of getting out of bed, but none is there!
I would absolutely recommend Postural Healing Programs to anyone dealing with chronic back pain. The method, combined with the sincere interest Anna took in relieving my pain has made a huge positive difference in my day to day life! - Scott
Initially skeptical, but willing to try anything to alleviate the chronic neck and back pain, numbness and general lack of well-being that I was experiencing, I followed the recommendation of my massage therapist to work with Anna Forliti. And I was pleasantly surprised!
In working with Anna, I have realized the ability within me to alleviate my pain and also to maintain a sense of confidence and well-being. The individualized Postural Healing Program included exercises to address my body’s specific imbalances. Today I am better able to be on the computer and stand for long periods of time which makes my work more enjoyable. I am also able exercise again without the significant level of discomfort I used to experience before working with Anna.
Anna listens well, so I never feel like I’m just another client with back problems. Her individualized approach to working with me is so refreshing! She works in collaboration with recommendations from other professionals of my care team (massage therapist, yoga instructor, chiropractor, and physical therapist) to provide an integrative approach to my treatment. Anna clearly has a passion for helping others along with a strong knowledge base and skills that make her such a valuable health care provider! - Fran
Anna is extraordinary and through my work with her, I have not just alleviated my excruciating back and shoulder pain, I have started realigning my posture. The pain relief is astonishing and enduring. As someone who has suffered with back pain for more than 30 years (curved spine, long hours at a desk and traveling around the world on cramped airline seats), I have deep experience with massage, acupuncture and chiropractic work. While those treatments gave me some immediate pain relief, working with Anna is different. She has given me the tools to get at the root causes of my pain, and I am healing. - Brooke
I have had back pain and related symptoms for 50 years, and have engaged in many different therapeutic approaches to it. In working with Anna by Skype (she is in Minnesota and I am in Spain) since January 2014, I feel that a miracle is taking place. Through her expert and encouraging way of teaching, Anna is guiding me to learn how to relax and strengthen, how to work with the support of gravity, how to bring breath into movement, how to feel deeply. In addition to my personal experience with Anna, I have referred participants with whom I work in my Integrative Health practice, and all have been very appreciative of their sessions with Anna. She offers extraordinary expertise and a lovely, gentle manner. I give Anna and her work my highest recommendation. - Kathryn
At age 71, it seemed pretty normal for me to have some osteoarthritis of my right hip. Many of my friends had already had hip or knee replacements, so walking with a limp but not having a great deal of pain meant to me that I was doing quite well. I was amazed and pleased that after three months of working with Anna — and doing my daily Postural Alignment Therapy exercises — I no longer had the limp. Rather than treating a specific problem or disease, Anna’s therapy encourages the body to revisit its normal postural positioning so it can heal itself. I highly recommend seeing Anna. She is a superb and compassionate healer and person. - Bill
