Assisted Stretching is becoming a very important benefit especially to the elderly. It can improve muscle function which can reduce the risk of injuries in the elderly. The chain Massage Envy has incorporated this stretching exercise into their program. This program not only helps the elderly but also is important to all people of all ages. People spend a lot of time sitting and doing other leisure activities which negate stretching which causes lower flexibility and mobility. It is important for everyone to engage in Assisted Stretching.
