human body has over 600 muscles. Muscles are designed for movement
by contracting (shortening) and relaxing (lengthening). It is this process
of contraction and relaxation which enables us to manage our internal
environment and move through our external environment.
stretching techniques typically involve stretching a muscle in isolation,
and are not full body stretches. This approach, for the most part, is
ineffective since it disregards the fact that muscles work in groups or
chains. If muscles did not function this way, we would not have the
ability to coordinate movement, i.e. to walk. Since muscles work together
in chains, it also follows that if one muscle within a chain has
an imbalance, then it will adversely affect the functioning and
length-tension relationships of other muscles within that chain.
In order to effectively stretch a muscle, you must stretch it along with the other muscles within the chain and the fascia that connects it. This form of stretching is called Myofascial Stretching and they are Santa Fe’s best stretching exercises for full body stretches.
Along with leaving you with better balance and more freedom in your muscles, myofascial stretches help improve strength. Muscle fibers are not the only thing that make you strong. There are also proprioceptors and the fascial sheets that surround the muscle fibers and connect it to the rest of your body. Myofascial stretching helps improve improve the fascial sheets and leave you more balanced and stronger.
structure dictates function, if you use Myofascial Stretching along with
ELDOA’s, structural reinforcement, global functioning exercises and a
healthy holistic lifestyle, your function (performance) will improve in
all areas of your life. Whether you are a professional athlete, a

quality of life will improve when you are living pain-free and in balance.
