Active Stretching Workshop
Active assistive stretching is a means of safely improving functional tissue length through movement. The techniques taught in this class are based on the Meeks Methods (C) and utilize reciprocal inhibition methods (where the contraction of one muscle is used to stretch the antagonist). These stretches help to increased blood flow so that the potential for damage during the stretch is minimized. Active assistive stretching goes far beyond the traditional passive or ballistic stretch in order to improve length from both origin to insertion of the muscles you’re working. This, in turn, will provide you with a more effective and longer lasting stretch. These stretches are often used by Physical Therapist to help alleviate conditions such as SIJ dysfunction, low back pain, plantar fascitis, and other sports-related injuries. Come join us for this seminar on Saturday, January 27th from 10 – 12 p.m. to learn this easy but effective means of improving your body’s health and function.
