The Stretch Therapy system is a comprehensive system that begins with simple movements progressing to more complex movements and partial poses leading to more dynamic movements. The system is bio mechanically focused, classes or workshops are designed around improving functionality of the muscular skeletal system. It’s a progressive system, and addresses individual limitations within the group environment.
The aim of stretch therapy is to release built up tension, manage pain, and increase the range of movement in the body. There is an emphasis on changing the ground substance of the fascia; a connective tissue responsible for the slide and glide of muscles.
Experience enhanced performance, freedom of movement and reduced injuries.
A sense of feeling freer, more open and taller, or having more space in the body, is often the way people describe how they feel after a stretch class.
WE MANIPULATE THE THREE FUNDAMENTAL NEURAL REFLEXES:
Reciprocal Inhibition reflex: This is the key to efficient strengthening of the body, particularly when you want to establish a new motor pattern, and in stretching it is ‘free’ flexibility, once you know how to use it.
Post-contraction Inhibition reflex: Once in a position where the stretching sensation is being experienced, an isometric contraction is done for a period. This is stopped, and a full breath taken. The re-stretch is performed during the period of the breath out. New range of movement is the result.
Apprehension reflex: this term refers to the projection of, or anticipation of, the discomfort of going deeper into any stretch or ordinary movement. People in pain experience this more acutely; apprehension is the major limiter of returning to any former range of movement. Defeating the natural self-protection mechanism that this term denotes will change your experience of working with your body forever.
