Happy Halloween! We have a very spoooooky stretch today for the horizontal adductors in your shoulders…

Stand in the doorframe of a haunted cabin (in the woods if possible) with your arm abducted to 90° and your elbow slightly flexed. Keeping your spine extended, rotate your body away from the outstretched arm. Watch out for zombies.

Remember to breathe deeply during this stretch, but be careful to not inhale too many ghosts.

Massage is a physical profession, and RMTs need to stay active to be at the top of their game. A good therapist will also be well-versed in exercises that will benefit their clients. Vicars students recieve training in remedial exercise, and our “remex” sessions incorporate exercises and stretches from many sports and athletic traditions. Practice along with us!

Each exercise is demonstrated by Denise Currie. In addition to being an RMT (and our Director!), Denise is a personal fitness trainer and highly regarded yoga practitioner who regularly trains other teachers.
