Here's a look at how belly lift stretches are done. You can use a needle cap, ink pen, rock, or fingernails (if you have them) to locate the pressure point that makes them lift their core. It doesn't take a lot of pressure. Ask them to to hold a few seconds at first, then ask for a longer hold as they become more acclimated. We use these stretches to help build topline, improve spine alignment, and relax muscles. — at Superior Therapy LLC.
