People often talk about the importance of
being active or getting in some sort of movement, but what people don’t talk
about enough is the importance of stretching, and IonLoop is here to address
A big part of the IonLoop brand is our
commitment to educating our customers about issues relative to health and
wellness, in addition to introducing our innovative products, like the IonLoop negative ion bracelet.
When we first launched our company, not many
people were aware of the natural benefits provided by negative ions. Since then, as we’ve expanded
our negative ion bracelet line, we’ve also encouraged more conversation about
other wellness topics, like stretching, for instance.
What people don’t realize is that stretching
doesn’t have to be something that is only done after an intense physical
workout. It is something that you can -- and
should! -- do every single day just to improve your overall quality of

Simply put: Stretching keeps your muscles flexible, strong, and
Flexibility is really important for a healthy

What if you skipped a workout or your day got
