Ting's life was never the same again after a wrongly taught Pilates class caused permanent damage to her spine in her postpartum. She could barely walk and could not sit down at all for a long time after the tragedy. Through the massive amount of pain she went through and her rocky journey of a slow recovery, she learnt about the life-changing magic of good posture, spine health and gratitude for a healthy body.
Unfortunately she had to say goodbye to heels and flats as heels add too much stress on the spine and flats do not provide any support at all. However she was also unwilling to resort to the traditional orthotic shoes, which are not only very expensive but are also clunky and heavy. Hence she started The Balance Company with a mission to bring modern wellness shoes designed for good posture to everyone, and help people take better care of their bodies.
Our mission is to provide tools and inspirations to help people adopt good posture so that they can live their best life. We believe that good posture can change the world. With good posture, we will stand taller, walk further, and smile wider.
