The Importance of UNWINDING!

Written by: Dr. Jessica Papa, PT, DPT


Unwinding, similar to a cat stretching when they first get up, is very natural and something that feels very good for our bodies.

Unwinding might seem awkward or forced at first especially if we aren’t used to letting our body move on its own. Also, if you’re not in tune with your body, you might need some help from a therapist at first. Once you start to tune in to your body, you’ll start to move naturally, and unwinding will turn into something that is easy and pleasurable.

Unwind before starting a self-treatment session to find out the areas of your body that you need to focus on. Be conscious of any feelings, emotions, or sensations that surface and work through them appropriately.
