Basic Stretching Facts
Who Needs Stretch Therapy
Everyone! One of the most ignored aspects of aging and athletic performance is the loss of flexibility in our joints, muscles, and fascia. This process starts well before one reaches middle age and begins even sooner in amateur and professional athletes. As we begin to lose flexibility our joints deteriorate, posture sags, physical appearance changes, muscular imbalances develop, and we become more prone to pain and injury from simple actions. Daily aches, pains, and fatigue that seem to have no obvious cause are likely the result of prolonged and accumulated restrictions in our fascial system. We lose flexibility at an average rate of one percent per year! When the issue is compounded by potentially detrimental lifestyles (either too little or too much activity), increased stress or poor hydration and nutrition, the loss in flexibility accounts for an even more rapid acceleration of the aging process.
It improves performance and reduces recovery time for athletes of all ages. Stay active and reduce injuries as you age. This remarkable technique can benefit anyone from high-school athletes (seeking to avoid injury and gain a competitive edge), to retired golfers wanting to improve their game rather than focus on pain from sore muscles & joints.
Sessions are performed on massage type table equipped with comfortable padded straps that stabilize the parts of the body not being worked on. Clients typically wear loose-fitting or athletic clothing. The experience is relaxing and pain-free.
