What is Therapeutic Assisted Stretching?
Rooted Bliss offers therapeutic assisted stretching! This is typically a shorter session. You relax while I stretch you, either on a massage table or a comfy mat on the floor. I do an intake and assessment first, to determine your current range of motion, pain level, and areas that need most attention. Then, I perform a series of stretches based on what you need.
Assisted stretching is frequently a part of physical therapy programs, and is used by professional athletes. It is very safe if done correctly. I will check in with you frequently, to ensure we are staying within a therapeutic range and avoiding potential injury. Because your muscles stay relaxed, your body can get more benefit from each stretch.
Assisted stretching has been shown to do the following:
- Release fascial tension
- Increase blood flow
- Improve flexibility and range of motion
- Reduce pain
- Induce deep relaxation
- Reduce recovery time from injury
