WHY TRY STRETCH THERAPY?



Because it will make you feel amazing!


The goal of stretch therapy is to treat muscle tightness, joint imbalances, and tissue restrictions that cause restricted movement, increased risk of injury, and add to the aches and pains you feel in your body.


Regardless of your occupation or daily activities, you likely engage in repetitive movements that lead to imbalances that compound over time.


Injuries can also lead to altered movement patterns that cause similar restrictions and imbalances, creating the potential for further injuries in the future.


Stretch therapy can improve your range of motion, leading to less restrictive movement patterns which will improve your performance and reduce your overall risk of injury.


But best of all, it is sooo relaxing and leaves you feeling fabulous

9 BENEFITS OF STRETCHING - HEALTHLINE ARTICLE


1. Increases your flexibility

Regular stretching can help increase your flexibility, which is crucial for your overall health. Not only can improved flexibility help you to perform everyday activities with relative ease, but it can also help delay the reduced mobility that can come with aging.


2. Increases your range of motion

Being able to move a joint through its full range of motion gives you more freedom of movement. Stretching regularly can help increase your range of motion.


3. Improves your performance in physical activities

Performing dynamic stretches before physical activities has been shown to help prepare your muscles for the activity.


4. Increases blood flow to your muscles

Performing stretches on a regular basis may improve your circulation. Improved circulation increases blood flow to your muscles, which can shorten your recovery time and reduce muscle soreness (also known as delayed onset muscle soreness or DOMS).


5. Improves your posture

Muscle imbalances are common and can lead to poor posture. One study found that a combination of strengthening and stretching specific muscle groups can reduce musculoskeletal pain and encourage proper alignment. That, in turn, may help improve your posture.


6. Helps to heal and prevent back pain

Tight muscles can lead to a decrease in your range of motion. When this happens, you increase the likelihood of straining the muscles in your back. Stretching can help heal an existing back injury by stretching the muscles.

A regular stretching routine can also help prevent future back pain by strengthening your back muscles and reducing your risk for muscle strain.


7. Is great for stress relief

When you’re experiencing stress, there’s a good chance your muscles are tense. That’s because your muscles tend to tighten up in response to physical and emotional stress. Focus on areas of your body where you tend to hold your stress, such as your neck, shoulders, and upper back.


8. Can calm your mind

Participating in a regular stretching program not only helps increase your flexibility but can also calm your mind. While you stretch, focus on mindfulness and meditation exercises, which give your mind a mental break.


9. Helps decrease tension headaches

Tension and stress headaches can interfere with your daily life. In addition to a proper diet, adequate hydration, and plenty of rest, stretching may help reduce the tension you feel from headaches.
