Stretching has recently become a buzz word in the health and wellness arena as more and more stretching facilities pop up. But stretching has always been a part what we do! We always incorporate stretching into your care plans and home recommendations. Now, we are highlighting it even more! You may now book a half hour stretching session with our highly trained and skilled licensed massage therapist. She will discuss your current limitations, prior injuries, functional movement restrictions, and your health goals to help identify what areas are problematic.
During a stretching session you will receive a variety of stretching techniques including Myoskeletal Alignment Therapy combined with muscle testing and muscle activation. This is a form of stretching that incorporates contract-relax patterns. Stretching in this way offers many benefits. First, it helps identify which muscle or group of muscles are weak under a specific load and which are strong. Second, contracting a muscle sends signals to the brain to relax which aids the subsequent physical stretch of the muscles fibers. Some refer to this technique at PNF Stretching which stands for Proprioceptive Neuromuscular Facilitation. PNF stretching is incorporating neurological pathways to aid in muscle recovery and stretching. Other benefits include increased circulation, pain relief, and reduced joint stiffness. This contract-relax type of stretching is particularly helpful in muscle recovery and flexibility. Call now and book your one on one personalized stretching session today!
