Stretching as a healing technique is certainly not a new concept, as most people will agree it is good for the body to stretch—whether to avoid injury as an athlete, or to retain mobility as we age.
benefits of stretching:
- Reduced muscle tension.
- Increased range of movement in the joints.
- Enhanced muscular coordination.
- Increased circulation of the blood to various parts of the body.
- Increased energy levels (resulting from increased circulation)
Stretching as We Age
Essentially, aging muscle tissue takes on a beef-jerky consistency, which leads to a slew of issues. As the functionality of joints and muscles is directly linked to the condition of the fascia, when they become inflamed more hard fascia results and tugs on other body parts. Each area of tightness restricts motion, blood flow and oxygen to the healthy tissue, thus causing systemic alignment issues.
By stretching, healthy blood and oxygen floods back to hardened tissue and allows it to become fluid, hydrated and mobile again. This benefits every part of the body and cannot be achieved by exercise alone. Common complaints as we age, such as stiff joints, tight muscles and body aches can be reversed or avoided when stretching is done consistently.
