Forward posture reduces neck movement.
( full video on our Fb page)
Less than ideal posture is a sweeping epidemic afflicting almost every single person in the world. The sight of a forward head position, rounded shoulders, internally rotated arms and anterior-tilted pelvises is commonplace in gyms, offices and rehab facilities . If these patterns are left unchecked, recovery rates can be impeded, injury rates increased and performance diminished.
All Crossed Up
Via research, Dr. Vladimir Janda identified a predictable pattern of muscles prone to tightness or shortness and weakness or inhibition.
He used the terms “upper crossed syndrome” and “lower crossed syndrome” to describe the conditions produced by these patterns.
Cervical traction works by stretching the spinal vertebrae and muscles to relieve pressure and pain. Force or tension is used to stretch or pull the head away from the neck. Creating space between the vertebrae relieves compression and allows the muscles to relax. This lengthens or stretches the muscles and joints around the neck.
These improvements may lead to improved mobility, range of motion, and alignment. This will allow you to go about your daily activities with greater ease.
Lack of mobility in the neck can affect many movement patterns we use during the day. For example in the functional movement screen, rolling is used to assess in the inner core stability, without adequate neck mobility this basic pattern is severely compromised

First & foremost, you’re welcome for this.
Second of all, @prehab2perform & I are collaborating on developing a ‘Simply Stretch & Strengthen’ program just for you! Because let’s face it, optimal movement patterns are the result of balanced mobility & strength. So keep your eyes peeled for our new program launch in the near future! 🙌🏼
Tag a friend below that could use a laugh! 🤣🤦🏻♀️
Сегодня вечером я всю тренировку «ругала» своё тело, а именно - рабочую ногу, за то, что та травмирована и уже несколько недель не даёт мне не то, что прогресса, а даже ранее достигнутого результата! Проворчав добрую половину занятия мы с гибкими дамами остались подольше, как всегда, покривляться у зеркала, и после пары минут хи-их и ха-ха тренер сказала: «девочки, нехер сидеть, давайте к стене - и одна тянет другую» а мы послушные до безобразия😏итог - в расслабленной обстановке, абстрагировавшись от нервов и напряжения минувших дней, результат не заставил себя ждать! Насколько наш мозг влияет на физиологию и возможности нашего тела стоит только догадываться, но одно я знаю точно - позитивный настрой и заряженная атмосфера (а если это всё ещё и под присмотром грамотного тренера) может творить чудеса! #stretching#stretchtherapy

FOOLIN’ AROUND 🤪
With filming comes a lot of bloopers. 🤣
I’m a firm believer that if you love what you do it will reciprocate in your work and through your clients. 🙌🏻
Building relationships with my clients is just as important as helping them with their tightness or chronic discomfort. 🤝
RECOVER STRONGER. Together. 🙏🏻

Everyone needs to wake up to gentle morning stretches to power the day!
By stretching first thing in the morning, you are improving your brain activity, decreasing body aches and pains, and increasing your energy level throughout the day.
I will be sharing soon a morning yoga stretch routine that will make you jump out of bed every day!🤸🏼♀️

WRIST PAIN WITH PUSH UPS OR FRONT SQUAT✋🏼🤚🏼
When doing any weight bearing exercises at the gym, or any exercises which require your wrist to go into extremes of extension (push ups, front squat, etc) it is important to ensure that you have the proper mobility prerequisites in order to do the exercise. It can cause pain and discomfort if you are loading maximal wrist extension when you are unable to even achieve maximal wrist extension. ❌
In comparison, doing pull ups or chins ups when we are unable to get our arms overhead fully, can cause impingement/injury in general.
Here are a few exercises that can be utilized to improve wrist extension:
1️⃣ Distraction + Wrist Extension Mobilization: put the band at the wrist crease and slowly bring your body forward over your wrist. Work within a comfortable range. Spend a couple minutes on this before your workout.
2️⃣ Weight Bearing + Lateral Shift: have your legs shoulder width apart and shift side to side. Trial 1-2 sets of 10 each way
3️⃣ Weight Bearing + Backward Shift: have your legs in a split position and shift your weight onto the back leg. Try 1-2 sets of 10

After every workout (and before), even if it's just a light one, you should ALWAYS stretch. I slack sometimes too but I am trying to hold myself more accountable. So many things can be caused by not stretching or not stretching enough. I want to make sure my flexibility is good, all of my muscles being used and pushed throughout my workouts are stretched and not tight, and I want to feel good! So should you! ▪Here are some major areas you should stretch after every workout:⬇️
◾Hamstrings ◾Lower Back
▪These are only just SOME of the areas you should stretch. They are used everyday even when you aren't working out so they are extremely important to be stretched to reduce injury!☀️
NECK PAIN DURING CRUNCHES? 😣
If you’re one of the many people who experiences neck pain/discomfort during crunches or other core exercises, this one’s for you! Grab a towel, wrap it around the back of your head (just above the base of the 💀), and then allow your head to fall back into the towel as you keep the towel taught with your hands. The goal here is to make a “head hammock” 😴
Now go get yourself a towel & give it a shot!

Rest posture soft tissue solutions:
Side Sit posture 5
During this technique the client is actively internally and externally rotating the tibia.
During the side sit and most floor based postures tibia rotation is required.
What most people don’t know about is the importance of adequate tibial internal rotation.
Normally motion is approx 20 degrees of motion when the knee is bent. Notice tibia angles in the pics- scroll right .

80% of walking is on one leg, running is 💯.
~Dr. Perry Nickelston @stopchasingpain
I’m a runner 🏃🏼♀️. It’s where I started my movement journey, all the way back to the first time I played sports. I was better at sprinting bases than making contact with a ball ⚾️; running the field, not scoring the goals 🥅. I’ve always had crap 👀 , so hand/foot and eye coordinated tasks were never really my strong suit. But running, that I could do. And often for a long time.
When it comes to how I train and stay strong for running, I was just like everyone else. Limited stretching, some strength training, all conventional junk. Did it help? 🤷🏼♀️
But as lifetime students, Marvin and I are always looking for more efficient ways of keeping ourselves doing the things we love. And as avid runners, well, training should support your hobbies...not hinder them.
Insert how we train ourselves NOW.
Newsflash: it doesn’t differ from how we train our clients.
Why would it?
We are all humans trying to live our best lives. Are there times to specialize? Maybe. That’s a discussion for another time.
What matters right now is having the strength and capability to keep up with what we do now, whether that is running/walking/living. And since essentially everything we do is done on one leg (see quote above), why not train that way?
I know, weird isn’t it?
Training ourselves for life.
Who would’ve thought?

During a stretch we are compressing some of the old water out of the fascia, on the release of a stretch, new water begins to fill it back up. Make sure you drink lots of water both before + after your Stretch Session in order to fill it up with the good stuff! (Also, just drink lots of water in general.😉)

AREN'T GORILLAS AWESOME? Yes or Yes? Whenever I go to Chicago I make it a point to visit the Gorillas at the Lincoln Park Zoo.
I caught this guy doing a few morning stretches and thought how cool it is he takes pride in his morning flexibility regimen 🤣😂But in all seriousness stretching and being flexible is not just important for athletes it is a huge part of being mobile and mobility is a huge part of EVERYONE'S quality of life!

Not everyday is as easy as jumping out of bed, slamming pre workout, and heading to the gym. For those days when I'm running behind I enjoy stretching, mindfulness, and working out the body kinks with my @danish.endurance bands from @amazon 💪I love that they come in color coded flexibilities and are only $7.98, @amazon Prime eligible. ❤🧡💚💜💙🖤
Friendship has been something on my mind lately. It’s really special to have friends that love you unconditionally, support the shit out of you, ... and even brighten up your day with voice notes 💗 The past few years, my life has changed a lot! AND the most incredible women have surrounded me.
Major transitions and upleveling really shows you what you value. Making entrepreneurship my priority and primary source of income was something I truly never thought I’d do. I reallyyyy dig security and being an entrepreneur doesn’t always provide that. It requires a helluva lot of trust and support. Also, learning new methods of bodywork and healing modalities have been quite the journey.
It’s been scary, fun, invigorating, confusing, and frustrating at times. I know a lot of people go through transformation and transition feeling alone and feeling like no one understands them, but having @ashly_ignite to relate to, lean on, pep-talk, or cry to is something I never knew I even deserved. Even better is that I get to reciprocate the same things to her.
My 20s have been a pivotal decade. I’ve learned a lot of lessons. Made a lot of mistakes. A lot. 😐 But appreciating the amazing people around me really helps me feel like I’m on the right path🤗
By the time a massage therapist or physical therapist or stretch therapist gets a client scheduled with them, in many cases, a client may have had a chronic pain or chronic postural Distortion condition for years. They've put off getting any kind of treatment for it. Remember, give your massage therapist or your physical therapist or your stretch therapist a chance. That condition developed over time and it's going to take a few sessions for us to reverse it. Your muscles or your body may be a little bit sore for a couple of days. Don't say something's not going to work until you've done the homework including stretches, muscle muscle releases, and strength building exercises we give you. As always, please tell us about any discomfort or changes you want to try to make to your treatment. If you don't like something or it's not working, give us a chance to make it better.
My 80 yr old client. I did manual lymphatic drainage massage after his knee surgery back in January.
He fell asleep during the massage and said it was "relaxing and soothing" 🤣🤔
Mind you my MLD method is the Vodder technique which is very soothing.
I’ve got some exciting news!!!

Side body resistance stretch with @sobe_lmt FEELS SO GOOD!
💥WHAT IS FASCIAL STRETCH THERAPY❓
This Assissted-stretch based method, focuses on addressing the anatomy as singular connected chain, while using the Fascial lines as a guide as opposed to dissecting it into individual muscle groups. Stretching across fascial lines of the body, this allows the therapist to cover greater surface area, while still targeting any specific pain and imbalances along that fascial line. Again The Focus is on the body as ONE integrated and connected unit.
✅The Method consists of:
🔸Traction of the joint capsule
🔸slow oscillation of extremity
🔸circumduction in multiple planes of movement.
🔸 synchronized breath
▪️This movement combined with synchronized breathing between client and therapist, is known as the STRETCHWAVE; this relationship is absolutely critical to maximizing results. Intuition, experience and client history play a significant role in creating a unique and personal experience for each individual.
♦️ELIMINATION OF CHRONIC PAIN
♦️ SIGNIFICANT & OFTEN TIMES TOTAL ELIMINATION OF LOW BACK PAIN
♦️REDUCED BODY STIFFNESS
♦️ SIGNIFICANTLY IMPROVED MOOD
