Range of Movement (ROM) is improved by using different stretching techniques. These can be passive static ( you are in a stretch not contracting muscles), passive dynamic (someone is taking your body through a stretch) or active static (you are actively holding a stretch) and active dynamic (your are moving your body through the stretch).
Get to know your body as we move in ways that tap into the nervous system, strengthen and engage your muscles, stabilise your joints and improve postural alignment.
The forgotten part of any health optimisation program. Relaxation is used, firstly; to switch off the stretch reflex (the protective mechanism that makes you contract your muscles and stiffen up,) giving you the ability to move into the stretch with more ease and secondly, as a way to relax and rejuvenate at the end of the session. This helps the body to “absorb” what it has learnt.
“Together, the Stretch Therapy elements enable anyone to improve flexibility, and to perform ordinary and extraordinary tasks with greater ease and better performance, and for longer in life.” – Kit Laughlin
