What body parts can you stretch?

The areas critical for mobility and strech are in your lower extremities: your calves, your hamstrings, your hip flexors in the pelvis and quadriceps in the front of the thigh.

Different Techniques for Stretch & Different Massage Therapy Circumstances
You may be seeking out massage treatment to relieve muscle pain or tension, or just to relax and unload some stress. However, you do not want to mistakenly pursue the wrong course of treatment. Equally important, patients often seek out medical therapy for a specific injury or pain. Naturally, in a medical setting, you will experience more targeted techniques, such as Myofascial Release or Trigger Point Therapy. In addition, the therapist will approach the treatment with your specific needs in mind, resulting in more individualized treatment. If you have a specific pain or dysfunction that you wish to address, then you should consider seeking out medical help, rather than spa treatment.
During a spa visit, you’ll likely receive more basic therapy that is focused on relaxation. Although spa therapists have been trained in the general art of massage, they may not have the same level of expertise as a physical therapist. Our therapists have received additional training in the form of continuing education courses and certifications, which allow them to provide advanced care and treatment styles.
What can you stretch everyday?
While the recommendation is stretching your shoulders, hip flexors and hamstrings first, as these three areas of the body are key to a great posture
