Personal training as a “somatic” approach recognizes that being able to reduce muscle tension and strengthen an individual’s body/mind requires awareness and movement re-education versus just stretching!
We can all remember a time when that aching back or neck pain caused us to stop and try to fix it. More than likely advice was given to do a specific exercise or stretch to alleviate the problem(s). We want a quick way to feel better. But…it inevitably returns because we are still using those faulty body-use habits and we become even more frustrated than we were before!
