Why The Vital Stretch
We all know that stretching is good for us. It can undo the damage caused by less than perfect posture (we’re looking at you, workplace slouchers) and combat sore, stiff muscles gained by hours spent lazing around (nudge, nudge, binge-watchers). Another bonus: stretching can boost our brain power, increase athletic performance and reduce pain. Still not convinced? A 2011 study published in the Journal of Physical Therapy found that 20 minutes of passive stretching can lower blood glucose levels in people with Type 2 Diabetes. Not bad for something we can do without breaking a sweat. Problem is: targeting our problem spots can be tough to do on our own. Plus, we could cause further damage by stretching the wrong way. That’s where The Vital Stretch® comes in.
