ASSISTED STRETCH THERAPY
Assisted Stretch Therapy, put simply, is a technique where our trained therapist helps you to stretch. It is a pain free therapy that can form part of your overall fitness plan to improve mobility and performance, reduce risk of injury and help you recover between workouts. It will give you a deeper stretch than you could ever achieve on your own.
We offer a 60 minute total body stretch with some targeted trigger point therapy/massage incorporated or a 30 minute session where we focus on problem areas, such as your hips, lower back and shoulders.
HOW IT WORKS
Assisted Stretch Therapy is applied through gentle pulls of the arms, legs, spine and neck through varying planes of movement. This helps to realign your body, increase mobility and flexibility, reduce stress and relieve achy joints and is specifically designed to calm the nervous system and relax the body. Our therapist will use specific techniques to directly work your muscles, but primarily your fascia; the connective tissue that surrounds muscle, bones and joints. Assisted stretch also targets the joints and joint capsule, removing restrictions from movement and stimulating lubrication, increasing overall health.
