What is Resistance Stretching?
Resistance Stretching is a new technique that both strengthens and stretches muscles in the body while focusing on core muscles for stability. Muscles start out elongated (long). In order to strengthen a muscle, force/weight/pressure is added to make the muscle work as it contracts (shortens). Resistance Stretching is just the opposite of all of that. The muscle starts out contracted (short), then the force/weight/pressure is added. Overcoming the resistance of the contracting muscle creates a stretched muscle.
What is Resistance Stretching Massage?
Resistance Stretching Massage is a new form of a deep tissue massage that breaks up myofascial tissue, which lengthens the muscle. The person getting worked on will be put into different Resistance Stretches to help targeted muscles surface to be treated. The technique is an up and down and side to side motion that is performed on the muscle, as opposed to long strokes that are performed in other types of massage. The person that is getting worked on is in complete control and communicates if the pressure is too much or not enough.
