Why spinal movements?
With 24 movable joints, spine is the most important part of the body to mobilize, yet it is often the stiffest part of the body for most people. A stiff spine not only causes discomfort and pain in the spine itself but also effects its adjacent joints: the shoulders and the hips. These spinal sequences not only develop suppleness in the spine, massage the intervertebral discs, promote healthy function of central nervous system, but also improve the function of heart and lungs (thoracic region) and strengthen the digestive and reproductive systems (lumber and sacrum regions). Associated movements initiated from spine also bring awareness, stability and flexibility to its neighboring shoulder and hip regions.
