Exercise is an essential part of feeling your best and staying healthy. But sometimes, finding the motivation to work out can be challenging, even when you know, it’s good for you. There are many reasons why people may not want to exercise. It could be because they don’t know how or where to start or feel intimidated by other exercisers at the gym. Whatever the reason, fitness experts recommend that we all do something physical every day as part of a healthy lifestyle.
This session will teach you how to release your myofascial trigger points. Removing your myofascial trigger points will help decrease muscle hypertonicity and soreness and improve flexibility. Releasing trigger points leads to optimal neuro-muscular tone and function.
Introducing the Myorelease Technique with Andrew Peters
Who is Andrew Peters?
Andrew Peters is the inventor of my release technique. He has been a massage therapist for 20 years and has studied many different types of sports, teaching release techniques to athletes and individuals in teams for over 20 years.
The Myorelease Technique
The my-release technique strengthens and maintains a healthy neuro-muscular tone. You can perform this technique anywhere, which is an excellent option if you are short on time. With most people, doing the same movement repeatedly and sitting for long periods during work increases this muscle tone, which can lead to headaches, neck pain, or back pain! You will learn how to release your neuro-muscular styles; these techniques will help decrease muscle tightness and soreness and improve one’s motion! A healthy my-release approach is essential for well-being with no symptoms of discomfort from muscles or joints.
My release technique is a simple yet effective way to release muscle tension and reduce muscle pain. It uses light, a spring-like device that helps release tight muscles by stretching them. Using a release device on specific forces or muscle groups can help relieve pain by releasing tension or tightness, which leads to pain relief. You can apply this technique to all body parts, including the neck, shoulders, back, hips, legs, and arms.
Performing the Myorelease Technique
My release may be performed at any time, including before or after a workout session, to warm up muscles before exercise. This will help relax tight muscles strained during routine activities such as typing on a keyboard all day long or driving your car around town. It also can be done throughout the day as needed, while watching television, sitting down for an extended period, reading a book, etc.
During my release technique, you tighten your muscles as hard as possible for 10 seconds, then immediately relax them for 10 seconds. It is vital to hold the contraction and comfort at the same time. While maintaining a relaxed muscle is not too difficult, having a muscle contraction is quite tricky. You may want to try it first without any weight and see how long you can hold it before your muscle begins to shake. The key to this technique is contracting and relaxing the muscle slowly, do not bounce or jerk to contract your muscles.
Having some free weights or resistance bands available at home will help you create resistance while performing my release techniques. If no consequences are public, simply tightening up against a wall will provide some resistance which will help with this technique.
Using a Firm Pillow or Rolled-up Towel Technique
Another way of doing this technique at home if no equipment is available is by using a firm pillow or rolled-up towel. If you are using a pillow, sit on the edge of your chair with your feet on the floor and place a pillow in your lap with the firmest side facing up. Place both hands on top of the pillow and tighten your muscles as hard as you can for 10 seconds as you inhale. Then immediately relax all of the muscles in your hands, arms, and upper body for 10 seconds. Repeat this process at least three times, if not more, to begin with – once or twice per day will be sufficient to start seeing results.
If you use this technique daily, you will notice significant changes in your muscle tone or more giant arms, legs, or a tighter stomach in 21 days. However, most people see results just a few days after starting my release technique.
The Benefits of the Myorelease Technique
You can perform this technique anywhere, which is an excellent option if you are short on time. Andrew Peters developed my release method to enable athletes to eliminate muscle tightness quickly. There are many benefits to this quick workout.
- For one thing, it’s easy on your joints and muscles.
- It also doesn’t take long- just five minutes!
- And best of all, it releases endorphins, which make you feel good mentally and physically.
So whether you have five minutes or fifty, this is a great way to give your body what it needs without feeling like you have to go to the gym.
My release Technique is an effective and efficient technique for releasing tension from the muscles and releasing stress. It takes only a few minutes and is especially recommended for those constantly working at a computer or on their phone.
