What's Included

Many massage therapists would like to include effective stretches in their client sessions but feel they don’t have the training or expertise to perform the stretches correctly. This two-day training in Facilitated Stretching will build your skill-set and increase your confidence to incorporate these effective stretches into your current massage repertoire for use with a wide variety of clients to help them regain or improve flexibility. Facilitated stretching, when combined with soft tissue work, will enable you to obtain greater overall success in client treatment sessions. Additionally, a program of self-stretching using these techniques can be invaluable for clients in their home stretching programs. Facilitated stretching is based on the principles of PNF (proprioceptive neuromuscular facilitation) and consists of three simple steps: stretch the muscle, contract it isometrically against resistance, then stretch it again. These steps apply whether you’re isolating one muscle at a time, or using the spiral diagonal patterns of PNF to stretch groups of muscles simultaneously. Important note: If you have the text, "Facilitated Stretching" please bring it. Instructor will have copies available for $30. Text not required, but highly encouraged.
