Stretching is very important for everyone. No matter what your activity level, stretching helps the muscles, tendons, ligaments, and joints stay healthy and strong. Therapeutic Stretching performed by a skilled Massage Therapist helps maintain mobility, prevent injury and increase physical performance. Therapeutic Stretching is an umbrella term for use of different stretching techniques such as Active Isolated Stretching, Muscle Energy Testing, and Isometric Stretching. At Peace of Mind Massage in Denver we integrate stretching into most of our Massage Therapy session because of the health benefits. Colorado is known as the fittest state in the nation. Health nuts unite cycling alongside each other, climbing/skiing/snowboarding/hiking mountains, and on the yoga mat. Stretching should be a part of any healthy person’s regular daily routine. Going to a skilled massage therapist who can incorporate stretching into your regular massage sessions combines the health benefits of stretching and massage. Your body will be very grateful! Active Isolated Stretching is facilitated by a massage therapist to build flexibility with short, gentle stretching that builds in intensity rather than deep extended stretching. The body responds to overstretching by resisting as this is the body’s natural defense against injury. Active Isolated Stretching allows the body to ease into the deep stretching without holding long enough for the body to resist the stretch and incorporating movement in the stretching. This repetitive stretching trains the body to use this flexibility in regular motions. The Massage Therapist will aid the client in breathing into the stretch, gaining more flexibility than can be reached when stretching solo. Together with the Denver Massage Therapist you can develop a better understanding of how your body will respond to regular stretching and the easiest way to incorporate it into your regimen. Home care is important and at Peace of Mind Massage in Denver we know how important it is to educate our clients on how to properly stretch and take care of the body between appointments. Therapeutic Stretching is beneficial for athletic training, chronic pain, and building range of motion, injury rehabilitation, and joint health.
