What is Stretch Therapy?
Stretch Therapy (also known as “assisted stretching”) works within your body’s limitations. During the session, you will be safely stretched – a fair length further than you would attempting to lengthen the same muscles on your own. Each stretch therapy session prioritizes tighter areas of the client while giving proper and beneficial stretching techniques, including Proprioceptive Neuromuscular Facilitation.
Benefits of Stretch Therapy
Stretch Therapy helps optimize your body’s speed, flexibility, stamina, and agility. It also restores mobility, decreases pain, increases blood circulation, mobilizes fascia restrictions, and promotes overall wellness. Learn to regulate the nervous system by improving movement patterns and reintroducing the body to the triplanar of motions: sagittal, frontal, and transverse.
More key benefits of Stretch Therapy are:
- Enhanced mental and emotional focus
- Reduced postural tightness (Also great for spinal conditions: kyphosis, scoliosis and flexor contracture created by tightness of the myofascial structures that supports the spine.)
- Improve hydration in tissue.
- Improve circulation and eliminate lactic acid build up.
- Facilitates flow of lymphatic fluid which channels waste and toxic products out of the body.
- Enhance feelings of confidence and well-being
