STRETCH FOR BETTER HEALTH
Stretching – practiced as one of traditional physical and mental activities since thousands of years – looks still ‘maiden’ today. Read on to learn about some of its health benefits.
THE PHILOSOPHY BEHIND
As we know from history – and natural medicine today – stretching can support and strengthen physical and mental power. In manifold ways. Proven by international research today.
HEALTH BENEFITS OF STRETCHING – SCIENTIFICALLY VERIFIED
According to research in Finland at
- University of Oulu
- Oulu University Hospital
- The Hong Kong Polytechnic University in Hong Kong, China
stretching may well reduce lower back pain, and also improve range of motion.
Scientifically supported also by research in South Korea at, inter alia,
- Inje University in Gimhae
- Kyungnam University in Changwon
Relieving headaches is another benefit of stretching (especially of upper back and neck), according to research in South Korea as well, at
- Gachon University in Incheon
- Sehan University in Yeongamgun
with improving sound sleep as well.
Based on research at, inter alia, the
- University of Electro-Communication in Tokyo, Japan,
stretching can help to calm down and focus more precisely on tasks ahead.
Even for people who, otherwise, are not practicing physical exercise at all.
As we learn from research at, inter alia,
- Universidade de Lisboa in Portugal’s capital Lisbon
regular stretching may well strengthen muscles, also encouraging alignment, thus improving our posture.
Both, dynamic and static stretching, may support muscle strength extend and reduce stiffness, thus improving bodily motion.
According to research at
- Universite de Bourgogne-Franche-Comte in Dijon, France
