Bodywork that's more than skin deep

Massage therapy is just one part of a healing regimen. Yoga or daily stretching and breathing exercises are key elements in preventing injury, reducing stress and maintaining overall health. They extend the benefits of massage treatments! A balanced diet, exercise, plenty of water and laughter are also important aspects in a healthy lifestyle.

Glute Stretch for Low-Back Relief

Lowback pain can often be a result of having tight glute muscles. The best way to keep your lower-back muscles happy is to keep your glutes flexible and healthy. The cross-legged stretch will help increase lower-back and hip (glute) flexibility.

*Lie on your back with your feet flat on the floor and your knees bent.
*Bend your left leg and rest your ankle on your right quad (above your knee).
*Grab your right thigh with your hands and pull your right knee/left ankle towards you.
*Enjoy a yummy stretch on your left glute.
