STRETCH RESET is a unique bodywork experience result of the combination of 3 bodywork techniques: Thai Massage, Myofascial Release, and Proprioceptive neuromuscular facilitation (PNF). During the STRETCH RESET session, the therapist will identify the tightness and imbalances in your body and customize the routine using these three techniques. Thai Massage centers the person, the Proprioceptive neuromuscular facilitation (PNF) helps with the overall flexibility, and the Myofascial Release works on specific trigger points in the body.
This healing technique was practiced before doctors. The massage involves deep massage and stretching and it happens on the floor on a firm mattress or a mat. It is a therapeutic procedure that provides relaxation and restores healthy blood circulation. It also treats energy blockages, weak, dysfunctional organs, aches and pains, stress and tension, flexibility, paralysis, nerve problems, and postural alignments.
NORMATEC Dynamic Compression Therapy
NORMATEC Compression Therapy is an innovative technology that uses air pressure massage to relieve muscle aches and/or pain and to increase circulation to the treated areas. Many leading athletes, trainers, and fitness enthusiasts around the world currently use this technology to lessen pain sensitivity, increase range of motion, clear metabolites passively, decrease muscle fatigue after exercise, and improve endothelial function and blood flow in the body.
WHAT TO EXPECT DURING
Your therapist will greet you and discuss your current flexibility and goals, any injuries that you may have, and walk you through your session. Your stretch won’t be painful, but your therapist will communicate with you throughout your stretch to gauge your comfort level. They will also talk to you throughout the session to get feedback and to make sure you know what is happening at all times.
We always make sure you start with a mini 5 minute warm-up for the joints and muscles which maximizes blood flow giving you a better and safer stretch. Once warmed up we will then start with Thai Massage slow undulating movement, as well as traction (gently pulling to create space in the joint) and modified PNF (Proprioceptive Neuromuscular Facilitation), synchronized with your breathing, This technique is followed throughout the whole body until you are completely stretched out and feeling great!
The session will be performed on a Thai Mat or a Massage Table. It’s best to wear clothes you feel comfortable moving in. People wear workout clothes, gym shorts, yoga pants, T-shirts, etc. Jeans and slacks tend to restrict your mobility so we suggest not wearing those types of materials.
