Good Weather + Gardening = Ouch! Gardener’s Massage Tips

Spring’s finally here: the weather improves and we want to get out and work in the yard! After this past winter, I couldn’t wait to spend some time cleaning up the garden beds, spreading mulch, and clearing out the yard.

The only problem is the day after all that work, my body let me know I should have been more careful. I have some massage and stretching tricks up my sleeve that I use to repair myself and want to share the same with you.

So, here’s your video for the week – in two parts.  The first has hand and arm self-massage tricks.

This second video has a great low back stretch/opener for use after hauling lots of bags of dirt and mulch, a good stretch for hamstrings and pecs.

    As a fellow MT, I just wanted to say I enjoyed your videos, Heather. I’m teaching a stretching and self-massage class to some gardeners tomorrow and will direct them to your site. Thanks!
