Next, to a massage, one of the most relaxing gifts you can give your body is daily stretching. After a long day sitting at a desk, stretching can help to elongate your muscles and improve their flexibility. If your job involves a lot of standing or walking around, stretching provides an outlet for built-up fatigue and tension.
Stretching is beneficial for children as well since even with recess and gym class, they still spend much of their day sitting at a desk. If your child has a physical disability that limits his or her range of motion or leads to stiff muscles and joints, stretching can help.
