BENEFITS OF ASSISTED STRETCHING
Massage Envy’s exclusive Streto Method is designed to relax your mind along with your body. Your stretch provider is trained to perform prescribed movements that deliver more than you can achieve stretching yourself. Regular assisted stretching increases flexibility, which improves mobility, leading to better performance.
More flexibility means less stress on muscles during workouts and daily activities. Deep, synchronized breathing relaxes your mind and your body.
Increased range of motion helps your joints feel more fluid and can stimulate production of your body’s natural lubricants.
Improved flexibility promotes muscular balance which can help you feel taller and stand straighter. Gentle, targeted stretching can rebuild posture from scratch.
Stretching increases blood supply throughout the body by increasing elasticity in muscles, joints, connective tissue and blood vessels. More circulation means more oxygen and nutrients.
"You don’t have to be an athlete to enjoy the fantastic benefits of the Streto Method. Imagine lifting a child, reaching the top shelf or doing your favorite dance with freer movement and fewer restrictions."
Increased flexibility helps improve muscle coordination and synergy. This creates structural stability that can greatly improve performance in athletics and regular, everyday activities.
Flexibility and muscle coordination help to prevent mobility limitation, which can happen with age. A regular, assisted stretching routine helps keep muscles active and engaged.
"Professional athletes have known the benefits of assisted stretching for years. Now, the weekend golfer, 5K runner and interval training enthusiast can all improve performance with regular Streto Method sessions."
Increased flexibility and mobility can lead to improved performance in routine daily activities like lifting groceries, reaching the top shelf and just sitting at a desk all day.
Whether you’re a professional athlete or a weekend warrior, improved flexibility and mobility can help strength, speed, power, agility and endurance so you can do more of what you love.
