Wellness Tips with Therapeutic Effects

Stretching 101
Have you ever wondered why you should hold your stretches for at least 30 seconds? Most stretching that you do should be held from 30-120 seconds to start creating new neural firing patterns which will allow muscle tissue to lengthen over time. Keep in mind that when you hold your stretch it should be comfortable and not painful. If you're tensing to try and get deeper into a stretch, your tissues could become damaged and are less likely to actually lengthen.

Yours in health,
