The chair, a tool or a toy? It is useful, and fun. A solid chair is a very effective tool for stretching and strengthening, and is also essential for truly enjoying the full Essentrics experience. It offers a unique form of lever stretch with two points of stabilization, the floor and the chair. The chair (and floor) acts as a stabilizer giving the arms and legs support and something to push against. It helps you release tension and locked muscles with a few simple feel good movements.
The Essentrics leg on the chair exercises are popular with people who suffer from back pain as well as athletes and everyone in-between. They are designed to rebalance the entire hip region. The depth of the stretch is adjusted by the movement and angle of the hips, the arm positions, and the techniques used. The arms are used as levers to stretch, strengthen, and rebalance the muscles. Leg on the chair exercises safely and rapidly tone and slenderize the muscles, improve flexibility, and increase a general feeling of well-being.
Essentrics spine exercises using a chair are excellent for the full torso, opening the chest, improving posture, preventing spinal arthritis, and relieving back and shoulder pain,. They offer a different range of motion than the free standing and floor work spine exercises. The weight of the body is supported by the chair allowing the muscles to relax into a deeper stretch, helping you to release long standing stiffness, rebalance muscle groups, and decompress your spine. Essentrics Chair Sequences can help you look good and feel great! Try it for yourself! Contact Essentrics With Karen today!
