As the season changes and it becomes colder, our muscles become tighter, shorten and the blood vessels constrict, making us feel stiff and achy. Having a stretching routine or ritual can help eliminate this. Stretching not only decreases pain and discomfort, but helps increase blood flow, flexibility and range of motion. Most importantly, stretching helps both the central and peripheral nervous systems become centered and balanced.
