May All Your Holidays Be Merry, Bright, Taller & Leaner
The holidays are upon us, which means your December calendar might be filling up with social events! Between office gatherings, gift exchanges, school performances and cocktails with friends, you may be faced with a lot of timely decisions. Little black dress or pantsuit? Homemade casserole or store-bought appetizer? Wrapped present or gift card? You may even seek quick beauty fixes. While a mani/pedi and blowout might top your to-do list, consider what Function 4 Life could do to help you look and feel phenomenal before your get-togethers with loved ones.
So exactly how can we help you put your best foot forward this holiday?
Humor us for a moment. What if we told you that our movement specialists have a secret potion to elongate your legs? That sessions with us can actually leave you taller and leaner? Sound too good to be true? Well, we don’t have an underground fountain of youth and we really don’t have any potions. What we do have are years of experience in fascia stretch therapy (FST) and therapeutic massage. There may not be wizardry involved with our work, but we assure you that it has proven to increase our clients’ height and improve posture. Imagine walking into a social event without a slouch, joint pain or limited flexibility. That could be a reality for you this holiday season!
Science tells us that males and females generally reach a height plateau at the end of puberty. We don’t deny this, but as trained physical therapists, we know that our height takes a hit due to many factors such as age, lifestyle and injuries. Our linear height gets comprised by years of tension and built up fascia, restricting our muscles and thus preventing us from looking and feeling our best. Gwyneth Paltrow’s lifestyle blog, Goop, recently ran an article stating how fascia fitness can make your legs longer. Even experts abroad have a hard time denying the benefits of fascia stretching. According to Harper’s Bazaar,“FST could be the key to a ballerina-esque elegance.”
Aside from pure aesthetics, FST helps improve circulation and can make you stronger.
Since this type of stretching is assisted, it allows you to undo all of the locked up flexibility you may have in your joint capsule — the area in which up to 50% of flexibility is lost. So what does a session with our magic makers look like? Check out our videos or this Shape Magazine article for an idea. Even newbies feel a difference after one session.
The takeaway? Asking Santa for a few extra inches is totally reasonable! Visit Function 4 Life to experience how we can help you feel your best top-to-bottom this holiday season. Experience for yourself what keeps clients coming back for more by calling (313) 737-0140 or booking an appointment here.
