Regular wear and tear on our bodies create a domino effect. Microtrauma can occur in our muscles due to repetitive movements, bad posture, improper body function, or lack of movement. Knots and adhesions form as a result and shorten the muscle. A muscle can remain chronically contracted if not properly addressed. Every muscle has an opposite muscle so if you have chronically contracted muscles, you also have chronically stretched muscles. Overly lengthened muscles are weak and unable to function to their fullest capacity.
In other words, one set of muscles is pulling you indefinitely in one direction while the other set of muscles is being over stretched and weakened to allow it.
Neck looking down
By stretching each muscle beyond its natural resting length, we are recalibrating the muscle and the brains perception of functionality.
WHY STRETCH YOURSELF?
it for you.
