6 hrs Facilitated Stretching

Facilitated Stretching

6 hours

As bodyworkers, we all know that most injuries are caused by trauma to muscles. If our muscles are bound and tight, it becomes an almost impossible task to be able to move, let alone play sports or do other activities that people enjoy doing. The key is to keep these muscles from becoming tight in the first place, thereby reducing stress and injury.

What makes this book so fantastic is that it not only discusses and demonstrates stretching done with a partner, but it also shows how one can stretch themselves on their own. There are step-by-step illustrated instructions that are easy to follow and implement for yourself and your clients. Plus, there is an online video that accompanies the book so you can see the proper body positions and techniques!

When clients have issues with bones and organs, they go see a doctor. When they have issues with muscles and joints, they come to see you. They see you as an answer to their pain issues. When you combine stretching with your massage modalities, your clients are getting the most bang for their buck; they can get relief from several issues all in that one stop to your business!

It is also important for therapists to keep their bodies in a state of flexibility and balance. Let’s face it; massage is a profession where we use just about every part of our bodies to work on other bodies. If we don’t have the strength or flexibility to adequately work on our clients, we have a very good chance of getting hurt. That is why stretching is so very important to know, understand, and use.

When your clients discover that they can feel twice as good for a longer period of time, they will come to you over and over again. And, when you find that you have more stamina to not only serve your clients but have energy to burn, you will be delighted that you added this modality to your extensive repertoire!
