Stretch Therapy is an assisted stretching technique that is performed with our client on the treatment table. It focuses on increasing the range of motion without pain by tractioning the joints so they can move freely to achieve the maximum stretch. It is important that you provide feedback to the therapist about your stretch comfort level.
The key to restoring flexibility, improving athletic performance, and reducing injuries. Your therapist will look for imbalances, as well as the source of those imbalances. Then using the breath to help with movement, the therapist will first warm up the joints and muscles with undulating stretching to maximize blood flow. Then using techniques of slow undulating movement, synchronized with the breath, the therapist will stretch the entire body, following a logical anatomical order, to lengthen the muscle, increase range of motion, and improve flexibility.
There is no pain, not even discomfort. Instead, the gentle movement is stimulating and relaxing at the same time.
