It is very exciting for me to see a client leave my office amazed at how much better they feel. They come back for follow-up visits having realized that the stretching they are now doing also helps them tremendously with their recovery! Educating people in stretching and self care to promote a better quality of life for them in the future is part of my job. To be able to facilitate a client in relieving pain is awesome! As we mature our muscles become less elastic. The need for stretching should be a part of everyone’s daily routine (young and old). Proper stretching before and after strenuous activities prepares the muscles to work and then to relax. It can help prevent painful muscle injuries from occurring. The older we get the more important it is to stretch our muscles and to keep active. There are several options available, from pool exercises to exercise classes offered through the Community Ed programs and the local Hospital’s health and wellness classes. Check it out! Getting a massage after a hard workout can lessen the chance of sore muscles. Massage will help flush toxins out of the muscles, and it improves blood supply to the muscles. Massage can also help relieve tension headaches. Muscles of the face, head and neck can be worked on to help relieve stress and anxiety. Massage aids in healing of sprained muscles. It also aids the healing process after surgery or accidents.
