The spine, a magnificent marvel! It is made up of a series of bones that are stacked like blocks on top of each other with cushions called discs in between. It is a complex system whose overall function is to support, protect and mobilize. Your spine provides support for your whole body, protects your nerves, and allows you to bend, lift, twist, turn and reach in many different ways. To maintain a healthy spine the vertebrae must be strong and well aligned and the dics must be supple and resilient.
Essentrics® uses specific techniques to unlock and create space in the spine to safely and effectively align the vertebrae, increase circulation, and enhance range of motion. Pulling Up is an Essentrics® technique that simultaneously lengthens and strengthens the musculature of the spine. All the muscles of the spine, from the smallest to the largest, are engaged. Elongating the spine throughout the Essentrics® workout, lengthens the spine while strengthening the muscles, this decompresses the vertebrae, reverses spine shrinkage, relieves pain and prevents injury.
Your spine was designed to stay strong, mobile, and pain-free for the full duration of your life. Essentrics® sequential exercise progressions follow the body’s natural flow in sync with how the body was designed to move. These movements mimic everyday life and are widely accepted as the safest most effective way to train the human body. All muscles are trained to do equal work so that no imbalances occur allowing all our muscles, bones and joints to work as they should. The result is balanced strength, increased flexibility, and pain-free living. Keep your spine healthy, move with ease, and enjoy vitality that lasts a lifetime with Essentrics!
