Stretching is one of the best ways to relieve muscle tension. It allows your muscles to remain flexible and strong to do your daily activities without pain or difficulty.
Although you can do stretches independently, doing them with a professional stretching coach will ensure you’re performing them correctly. As a result, you’ll be able to get the most benefits from the stretch with a professional there to help you.
Assisted stretching is a form of static stretching. Our Certified Personal Trainer exerts a gentle force upon the limbs to move them into a new position, holding them for a specific time to lengthen and stretch the muscle fiber and tissue.
Assisted stretching helps to create muscle and body alignment and improves flexibility, muscle control, and an expanded range of motion.
Stretching activates the deep postural muscles. Flexibility within the joints and muscles decreases tension on muscles and relieves stress from the joints. It corrects muscle imbalance which can improve overall fitness and help reduce the risk of injury whilst exercising and in everyday life.
Stretching your muscles as often as possible is the most effective way to improve your flexibility. Having a one-on-one professional-assisted stretch will give you a much better, deeper stretch that feels great as you do it.
Stretching is Good for Seniors!
For many older adults, maintaining mobility at an older age can be pretty challenging. Our bodies, like any machine, undergo many changes as we age, making staying active and mobile all the more difficult. However, through proper care and exercise, we can strengthen our muscles and joints to help mitigate changes and keep our bodies strong and flexible. Staying active and mobile can be challenging, but maintaining a healthy and active lifestyle means working our body’s muscles to remain strong and mobile well into old age.
In addition to muscle and movement maintenance, stretching exercises can help delay the onset of diseases, such as diabetes and arthritis – it can improve mental health.
