Do you find it difficult to touch your toes? You are not alone. Research has shown that half the population cannot touch their toes due to tight hamstring muscles. Experts blame this lack of flexibility on poor lifestyles. Tight hamstrings can lead to a range of problems: back pain, knee problems, hip pain, muscle strains.
Now a study published by Coventry University shows that the Bowen Technique, a gentle remedial complementary therapy, reduces hamstring tightness and increases flexibility. This effect was observed after a single treatment with most of the participants either being able to touch their toes or showing a significant improvement after a single treatment!
