Stretching for Memory

Did you know studies show that stretching helps you build lasting memory and may reduce your risk for Alzheimers ?
It is also proven to reduce anxiety which helps you think more clearly in the moment .

Stretching can also help another common symptom of TBI and ABI which is Dysautonomia and POTS

“Stretching affects not only our muscle system but also our neurological system, which includes the operation of the brain. When you stretch, you lengthen some areas while relaxing others. The brain in turn regulates automatic functions such as heart rate and blood pressure. It secretes hormones, which act as chemical messengers to help insulin control, metabolism, mood and emotion.”
Taken from the book “Stretching,” by Suzanne Martin
