Stretching



Stretching is easy and enjoyable to do.


Stretching gently tugs the connective tissue throughout your body, generating tiny electrical impulses, which are experienced by the body as comforting, healing, and regenerative. Stretching is essential for the joints.


Intense stretching is best a few times a week. Be careful not to over stretch, moderation is better. 


Try "easy range of movement stretching" on other days. 


Stretching all joints in all directions every day increases synovial fluid and prevents stiffness that leads to arthritis.
