Stretch Therapy is a comprehensive system that aims to help people experience grace and ease in their bodies.
Various techniques are used to improve range of movement. Nerves, fascia, and muscles are used as “gateways” to change the brain.
Inactive muscles are made active. Knees, shoulders, and elbows are stabilized. Posture and alignment are made more efficient.
A critical, yet often forgotten part of any health optimization program. While commonly understood as a fundamental part of rejuvenation and regeneration practices, “relaxation” in ST also refers to techniques that enhance speed, as any force-producing agonist needs its antagonist to relax equally quickly to move faster.
The capacity of the whole body to exert force is emphasized. Most ST techniques are body-weight only, and all involve the “core.”
All ST exercises have been subjected to extensive testing by our teachers, therapists, and students to satisfy this criterion.
All potential Stretch Therapy exercises are weighed against the criterion of effectiveness (efficiency). If two exercises are equally safe, the more effective one is selected.
