Types of Stretches

Our assisted table stretching incorporates PNF, Myofascial and Soft Tissue Release stretching for the lower and upper limbs of the body. Our stretches will focus on major muscles, joints and common problem areas, which include the ankle and feet, calves, quadriceps, hamstrings, glutes, the hips, lower back and upper back tightness, shoulders, chest and arms.

Proprioceptive Neuromuscular Facilitation (PNF) will be performed on a table while the participant is lying face up. It is one of the most effective forms of stretching utilized to improve muscle elasticity, active and passive range of motion. PNF incorporates a passive hold-relax technique and an active push-relax technique, in which the participant will briefly contract the isolated muscle and relax. By facilitating muscle relaxation, we can improve circulation to the muscle and extensibility of myofascial tissues.

During Soft Tissue Release, the stretch technician will assist in the movement of the limbs and provide proper adjustments to re-align the body into anatomical posture and integrate proper form to effectively feel a satisfactory, thorough stretch. Deep, synchronized breathing is important as it can help to create more oxygen flow to the tissues being acted upon and provide more nutrients to the muscle. While STR is performed, the stretch technician will apply a lock to the tissues and muscle adhesions and then move the participants body to facilitate the stretch.
