Ok so my goal is to post a "stretch of the week" every week to help educate those who will take a few moments to add these to their daily regimen or at least start to! Stretching and Massage go hand in hand, they both elongate the muscles and other connective tissues, they increase healthy blood flow providing oxygen and nutrients to the muscles to keep them healthy and mobile as well as pumping stagnant lymph to increase our immune health. And these are just a few great benefits!
So here's stretch #1 The Hip Flexor Stretch. For people who are sitting most of the day this is a great stretch to take some pressure off the lower back this is a super easy stretch and you can do this first thing in the morning as well as before you go to bed. For a deeper stretch simply lean into the lunge.
