Stretch for Strength
MOVEMENT BASED STRETCHING
A new approach to opening up the body and the mind
There is a new concept of how to stretch muscles. When we create resistance the fascia expands, allowing each muscle's fibers to properly stretch, release and contract. It is a collaborative experience in which one area resists while another works to either push or pull against it. The goal is to break down dense fascia and scar tissue to create a truer state of balance within all areas of the body.
Typically Stretching is done on mats on the floor, working along the meridians and their associated muscle groups using resistance to help stretch as well as strengthen. Because the muscles are always in motion, we are able to work within your range of ability and challenge the areas where it is needed most.
This work can also be incorporated in with massage or other bodywork treatments, helping to release the muscles faster and easier.
