The 15 Second Routine

Daily Maintenance Programme

After any action which is repetitive for more than 4 hours, including sleeping, 8 particular ‘rip’ stretches are a must to stop adhesive processes named Velcresions™ from forming. When the arms are in the correct location the upper torso weightload is evenly distributed over the pelvis, hips, knees and feet.

1. Back Stroke

Palm of hand must face and pass ear before turning and a small click must be heard.

Reason

Rotates arm bone to correct place in shoulder socket and lubricates joint. Must be done daily and after repetitive bent-elbow activity.

2. Diagonal

Inside of arm and palms must face front – stretch arms backward.

Reason

To stretch against curled up position as in sleeping and round-shouldered activity.

3. Hug

Stretching muscles between shoulder blades.

Reason

Muscles between shoulder blades adhere, the hug keeps the fibres stretched apart.

4. Chest Stretch

Both arms in backward rotation. Grab hold of hands, behind back, stretch, plus big yawn – unlocks jaw line.

Reason

Stretches the front muscles open to expand chest and ribs; stopping compression on vital organs. To be done after sitting, driving, sewing, computing, falling asleep in chair.

5. Arm Stretch

To the ceiling.

Reason

Expands ribs and stops Velcresions™ forming and changing spinal alignment (scoliosis).

6. Arm Stretch

7. Arm Stretch
