STRETCHING is an excellent guide to more stretching techniques than I have ever seen in an exercise routine/stretching routine DVD. The practical stretching, for say computer use, makes this book indispensable.

One of the best books I've seen that encourages stretching to feel better all over

Every stretch is within a person's reach if they will just try.
