"Movement is key to the prevention of injury and disease. Treat your body well and it will do the same in kind."
Active Stretch Therapy for athletes and active people of all ages.
The human body functions as an entire unit.
In order for proper function each individual area of the body needs to be well balanced.
A good balance of flexibility and muscle function is achieved most effectively through Active Stretch Therapy.
Active Stretch Therapy helps prevent injury, promote circulation, speed recovery and enhance performance.
INJURY TREATMENT & PREVENTION
Repetative stress and compensation patterns occur within the body which lead to injury.
By measuring imbalances in flexibility and function throughout the entire body a corrective program can then be established.
Active Stretch Therapy can help prevent or improve both acute and chronic conditions.
Active Stretch Therapy creates a natural “flush out” of the muscles relieving them of metabolic waste that leads to soreness.
This enhanced recovery is achieved by increasing blood flow through the muscles tissue, connective tissue and joints.
The result is decreased muscle soreness, increased joint range of motion and improved performance in athletic competition.
