Explore the movements of flexion. The Flexors are a class of muscles that close the joints. Grasping something with the hand is an act of flexion. As is bending the elbow or the hip joint. The flexors are designed to contact and then let go. They are not intended for long durations of contraction. Because of habits of repetitive use, stress, and anxiety, we overly contract them. Especially the muscles of the abdomen, chest, and lower back. This exercise alleviates your nervous system of the prolonged and fatiguing contractions.

This is a great releasing exercise for the neck and jaw, and many other areas.
