Is There a Better Way?

Seriously, though, for just a minute: Do you want to get in shape and feel great emotionally and mentally at the same time?

There is a better way. Regular exercise including … Stretching.

Stretching is so simple that it's hard to imagine it does much for your health ... but studies show it is one of the best ways to relieve pain, improve your well-being and boost your health overall.

In fact, regular stretching, according to the Mayo Clinic, can:

  • Increase your flexibility, which improves your daily performance.
  • Improve your range of motion in your joints, giving you better balance and less prone to falls as you age.
  • Improve your circulation by increasing blood flow to your muscles. This helps your muscles to recover after injuries.
  • Promote better posture by keeping your muscles loose and minimizing aches and pains.
  • Prevent injuries, particularly if you have tight muscles or joints.

According to Jacques Gauthier, top stretching expert of the Stretching Toward a Healthier Life DVD, stretching should be easy, enjoyable, safe and effective, and better still it takes just 15 to 20 minutes of stretching a day to experience the beneficial effects.

And while there are countless stretches out there, it takes just 15 of them to stretch 95 percent of your body. Gauthier's Stretching Toward a Healthier Life DVD shows you all 15 of these most effective stretching exercises, and the full program takes just 15 to 20 minutes a day.

Proper stretching is one of the most widely recommended methods to help you look and feel younger, live longer, avoid and even overcome serious health issues, and increase your mental concentration and emotional well-being.

And if you have back pain, neck pain, or pain in your knees, shoulders, arms, hands or other parts of your body, you are doing yourself an extreme disservice by not stretching.

The best part of all is, when you do the RIGHT stretching exercises as presented in the Stretching Toward a Healthier Life DVD (which now has FREE SHIPPING for a limited time), you will actually feel great while doing them, as well!
