* A selection of digital platforms that best suit your devices. Download or stream to your smartphone, tablet, laptop, Smart TV or desktop pc. We will even ship DVD's if that is your preference.
Our motto is - relief, repair, maintain.
Get immediate relief and mobility for the affected area of your body. If you have a recent muscle strain that is not too severe then all you could need are a few essential exercises to gain a more immediate response.This is a short-term solution which, when targeted correctly, will give you quick and immediate results.
Download the zone chapter to relieve and repair the affected part of your body. When the problem is deeper and wider spread you will need to do a more in depth program that requires exercises that cover a more complete range of muscles in the problem zone. For this you will need all the information in the chapter of the body zone that is causing you problems.
The chapters include the essential exercises plus many more you can do on your own. Also, exercises you can do with a partner, which will give you significantly improved results. There are also simple strengthening exercises which will give your body a greater stability.
Start with the Chapter that best suits your current issue. Then move to the neighbouring chapter of the body. For example if your neck is causing you grief, start with the neck chapter then move on to the jaw or shoulder chapter to bring them into line. Continue throughout the body until you feel fantastic. As the old song tells us, every bone is connected to another bone so address the neighboring regions if you want long term results.
Be aware of your posture. Check out the posture section to understand the importance of good posture and ways to form better postural habits at home, at work and at play.
