A little background… I had been in the health and fitness field for about 15 years at the time, and I had no idea that the best use for stretching is NOT range of motion or relaxing the muscle. That is just a consequence of stretching facially to balance your body.
Which is retrospectively a little frustrating because I had gone through 4 high-level certification programs, and they all said the same thing. And this lack of total information lead me to get hurt and had to stop my life.😱
It wasn’t until I started 𝑨𝑪𝑻𝑰𝑽𝑬𝑳𝒀 stretching not just my muscles but also the fascia connecting links that allow our body to be balanced that I started getting #correctiveexercise results.

And so, if the fascia connects everything and it is responsive, then the goal of stretching is to balance the body. And a s a consequence we become more mobile, balanced, have less pain, are more resilient, recover quicker etc. etc. etc. Knowing what muscles to stretch and the fascial chains accompanying it is the trick.
You got some 600 odd muscles and different directions that these muscles go, so it can get a little overwhelming. This is part of what I teach in my program. How to dial in which muscles to stretch and the chains involved is a big part of a complete health and fitness program. If you are an active person struggling to keep up with the activities you love, I would love to have a conversation with you to help you in any way possible.
