Stretching exercises for pain relief
Massage treatments will usually involve some passive stretching techniques. The client lies still and the affected area is gently stretched.
I recommend that between sessions you do some stretching yourself at home. This greatly prolongs the benefits of a massage treatment and enables you to help yourself long term. Stretching is a great and easy way of reducing inflammation and relaxing muscles, increasing flexibility and reducing injury risks.
No equipment is needed, just the floor, a wall or a doorway and a few minutes of your time. I can provide an illustrated sheet of diagrams so it is easy for you to remember how to do your stretches. If you can get into a routine of stretching on a regular basis, you will notice a substantial improvement in your ability to remain pain free.
