Diane Cherico: Can students do isolated stretches to focus on school work instead of back pain?

Our next guest is Diane Cherico, a Licensed Massage Therapist and Medical Massage Practitioner in her own practice since 1999. Diane specializes in Active Isolated Stretching – a very simple, yet effective therapy for all ages that works in relieving all kinds of muscular pain. Muscular pain leads to many ailments and this therapy repairs and rejuvenates the muscle itself. Her objective is to teach everyone how to do this themselves so they can care for their body at home.

In episode 341 of the Fraternity Foodie Podcast, we find out why Diane decided to become a Licensed Massage Therapist and Medical Massage Practitioner, how students can use isolated stretches in order to focus better on their school work instead of muscular pain, what it was like to be a 9/11 Volunteer therapist at American Red Cross Center followed by two years as a volunteer therapist at the 100th St. FDNY Firehouse, how she helps Cancer patients undergoing various treatments, what are the benefits of Pre-natal massage and labor/delivery room therapy, how we can learn to breathe better (tips in her book “You Can If You Say You Can: A Common-Sense Approach to Better Your Body, Mind and Soul”), advice on how to eat/drink for more energy and less doctor visits, and recommendations for movement and exercise. Enjoy!
