  • Increased range of motion
  • Muscular balance and symmetry
  • Improved performance
  • Reduced risk of injury
  • Improved muscle function

What is it?

First, we look for imbalances, as well as the source of those imbalances. While using breath to help with movement, we will warm up the joints and muscles with undulating stretching to maximize blood flow. Then using techniques of slow undulating movement, as well as traction (gently pulling to create space in the joint) and modified PNF (proprioceptive neuromuscular facilitation), synchronized with the breath,  we will stretch the entire body, following a logical anatomical order, to lengthen muscle, increase range of motion.

So, all you have to do is lay down, breath, and trust the process. 

We will gently pull and move the arms, legs, spine, and neck in a smooth motion through varying planes of movement. There is no pain, not even discomfort. Instead, the gentle movement is stimulating and relaxing at the same time.
