The importance of stretching.
A lot of people say that they stretch or that they go to yoga. I’m sure that doing those stretches are useful and beneficial, however, are all of those stretches are addressed to every individual?
Every individual has their own work routine, lifestyle, preferences. Much like a training or a dietary programme, stretching should be done in a way that benefits different needs.
For example, shoulder and hips are going to the specificity of the individual muscle, therefore, a simple stretch might not be enough.
By testing someone’s muscles in balance, strength and flexibility, we will be able to find the most suitable stretching routine, so the individual will be able to enjoy the maximum of the (healing) benefits stretching has to offer.
It can help improve posture and it can allow you to heal quicker and recover from your previous workout, giving you fitness gains as you can simply train more frequently than people who choose not to stretch.
Another point of view to look at is being holistic. When certain muscles tighten up in the physical zones of the body that are caused by stress, you are mentally and physically healing your body.
