About this Event

The new fitness fad is STRETCHING!

Massage Therapists have always known that stretching is an essential part of our therapeutic approach when working with a client's soft tissue pain and/or stiffness.

I believe it is of the utmost importance that therapists have a solid understanding of the "Science of Flexibility".

• Do you have confidence in your approach with “stretching out” your clients?

• When do you use a Passive Stretch versus an Active Stretch?

• What is the difference between Myofascial Release and Deep Tissue?

• Can you identify the difference between Active Isolated Stretching versus Proprioceptive Neuromuscular Facilitation?

• Could you offer a stretching session for a 1/2 hour?

• Do you wish to integrate stretching into your massage session and just don't know how? Draping? In Clothing? On Table? Off Table?

• What is the most effective stretching technique to execute when a soft tissue spasm or injury comes onto your table?

Join this workshop and explore all these topics and get some answers.

We will be working with each other practicing and perfecting specific protocols of ACTIVE ISOLATED STRETCHING.

You will gain 17 Continuing Education Credits.
