STRETCHING BENEFITS

Increased flexibility and joint range of motion: Flexible muscles can improve your daily performance in even the most simplest of tasks.. Tasks such as lifting boxes, bending to tie your shoes or hurrying across the parking lot into work become easier and less tiring. Flexibility tends to diminish as you get older, but you can maintain & regain it with constant stretching.​

  1. Improved circulation: Stretching increases blood flow to your muscles. Blood flowing to your muscles brings nourishment and gets rid of waste byproducts in the muscle tissue. Improved circulation can help shorten your recovery time if you've had any muscle injuries.

  2. ​.​Better posture: Frequent stretching can help keep your muscles from getting tight, which in turns allow you to maintain proper posture. Proper posture can minimize discomfort while keeping aches and pains at a minimum.

  3. Stress relief: Stretching relaxes tight, tense muscles that often accompany stress.​Enhanced performance: Maintaining the full range-of-motion through your joints keeps you in better balance and your muscles work more efficiently. Coordination and balance will help keep you mobile and less prone to injury from falls, especially as you get older.
