In a now viral TikTok video, the osteopath recommends lying on the floor with your legs pressed against a wall, then bending them inward before gently opening them as far as possible.
Talbot’s simple tips, which have racked up over 1 million views since its July 22 upload, sparked hundreds of appreciative comments from viewers who claim he changed their lives.
‘Thank you for making this video, I need this! I have already added so many of your suggestions and they help me immensely,” one woman wrote.
Another said, ‘Oh my god I NEED these, I can’t thank you enough!’

Others joked that they are so stiff that they could never perform the moves without breaking something.
“If I had to do that, I’d be on the floor,” one man wrote, while a second said, “Maybe you should help me up after that.”
Earlier this month, the osteopath sparked TikTok sensation with a simple trick to improve “head forward posture,” which is when a person’s head naturally leans forward, putting pressure on the neck and restricting blood flow to the brain.
The risky attitude is often exacerbated by the use of devices such as computers and smartphones.

What is the function of the vagus nerve?
The vagus nerve carries an extensive array of signals from the digestive system and organs to the brain and vice versa.
It is the longest and most complex of the brain’s 12 cranial nerves, extending from its origin in the brainstem through the neck and chest to the stomach.
The vagus nerve plays a role in the most important functions of the body, including breathing, speech, digestion, and taste.
Mr. Talbot says that performing a ‘trapezius twist’ every time you get up from sitting can alter your health by repairing the vagus nerve.
He claims that the movement — crossing your arms in front of your body and moving them back and forth, then over your head — changes muscle tone and opens the chest, leading to an immediate change in breathing and posture.
Mr Talbot explained that limited blood flow caused by poor posture can lead to a host of serious health problems, including anxiety, depression, insomnia and chronic fatigue.
