Struggling to catch some ZZZs? Stretching can help! Stretch and Recovery Therapy can improve your quality of sleep and overall mood. 

There are countless benefits of Stretch and Recovery Therapy, including reduced stress, improved blood circulation, increased range of motion, pain relief, and more. But how can these stretching benefits really improve your sleep?

REDUCED STRESS

If there’s one thing that can keep you up at night, it’s stress. When you’re stressed, there’s a good chance your muscles are tense. Focus on stretching the areas of your body where you tend to hold stress, like your neck, shoulders, and upper back.

In addition, stretching can help calm your mind, further reducing stress. While stretching, you can try some mindfulness and meditation exercises, which get your mind off whatever you’re worried about, and give your mind a break. Releasing both muscle and mental tension can improve how quickly you fall asleep and the overall quality of your nightly snooze. 

PAIN RELIEF

Muscle pain frequently keeps people up at night, especially lower back pain. A high-quality mattress may be tempting, but the issue could actually be coming from within.

Stretching could help minimize the pain you’re experiencing. If you’ve already experienced a strain or injury, regular Stretch and Recovery Therapy can aid in the healing process. Additionally, stretching can strengthen your muscles to prevent further injuries from occurring.

IMPROVED BLOOD FLOW

Regular stretching can improve blood flow to your muscles, which can cut down recovery time and reduce muscle soreness. Better blood flow means your muscles are getting the oxygen and nutrients they need to perform well. If your muscles aren’t performing their best, they’re probably not letting you sleep your best.
