Nowadays, stretching has established itself as an essential part of our pursuit of optimum health and well-being. As bodies cry out for relief from the effects of aging, a sedentary lifestyle, an injury, or stress, more and more people have learned to recognize the benefits of an excellent assisted stretch session with a certified practitioner.
Whether you’re a professional athlete, a retiree, or someone who’s continuously chained to your work desk, your body is going to thank you for allowing it to stretch. If you’re not familiar with this concept, it’s all about stretching those tight muscles with the help of another person who works to manipulate your body as you relax your muscles.
What Can Your Body Gain from an Assisted Stretch?
Enhanced Performance During Workouts
Regular assisted stretching will increase your range of motion and reduce general muscle tension. In other words, you’ll be able to reach, bend, and turn with less effort and no pain. Once those tight muscles are loosened, your body will be able to move more efficiently as you work out at the gym.
As you say goodbye to the tightness of your lower back and hips, you’ll notice that your lunges and squats aren’t as limited as they used to before you started stretching. You’ll be able to use all of your body’s major muscle groups, and you’ll be pleasantly surprised at how well they’ll be working.
Ability to Perform Daily Physical Activities with Ease
One of the best things about having someone to help you stretch is the fact that they know how to target your problem spots. Once these muscles have been carefully stretched, your body will become more prepared to perform your daily activities.
You’ll be running to the subway with great ease; your back won’t hurt when you carry your grocery bags because stretching works to improve everything else you do throughout your day.
