Helping women and men improve their flexibility, range of motion and posture.
Stretching is definitely one of the simplest ways to keep yourself in good shape and helps prevent difficulties as you age.
Stretching allows your body to operate more effectively – it helps the blood and lymph flow easier through the body, it helps eliminate metabolic waste from the tissues, and also helps manage or prevent aches and pains.
The whole aim of stretching is to get your muscles moving to maintain and increase your mobility and flexibility. When you don’t stretch muscles – they tighten up, shorten and can put you at risk of joint pain, stiffness and strains and also muscle damage.
Muscles tighten up especially after extended periods of sitting down or lack of movement. Hamstrings can tighten up, necks can start aching or fatiguing, wrists can start to ache and strain from repetitive movements. Now more than ever, our bodies are screaming at us to stretch and lengthen our muscles more often.
Moving these muscles can improve every part of your body from your brain through to your joints and how you feel overall. Even small simple movements can have such a significant impact on not only your physical health but your mental and emotional health as well.
When you stretch your body it revives some life back into you. It helps increase the oxygen flow throughout all your cells in your body. Focusing on your breath is an important part of stretching too.
