Stretching is an important aspect of health and wellness. Stretching is the muscles ability to lengthen. Mobilization is the free fluid motion of a joint or series of joints. A postural reading can quickly determine if a muscle, or muscle group, needs stretching/ lengthening or the opposite, techniques to shorten or increase muscular tones. The objective being to bring balance to opposing muscle groups. Balance supports correct biomechanics and free moving joints, namely optimizing Mobilization.

Motion or the ability of the body to to freely move is fundamentally important. If a single joint or muscle crossing a joint is not freely moving, the rest of the body is compensating; unattended, causing stiffness and eventually pain signals manifest.
Dormancy or holding the same position for long periods is detrimental for mobilization. Muscles held at one length for long periods (dormancy) respond to that held length as normal and respectively resist lengthening; or shortening for that matter. Specific stretching techniques (passive/ active/ assisted) and utilizing neurological principals of ‘Recipital Inhibition’ and ‘Proprioceptive Neuromuscular Facilitation’.
The short of it all, is that muscles function is to move. We may have a fortunate predisposition to exercise, hence shortening muscles by increasing muscle tone. Even so, how many of us set time simply for stretching and lengthening short muscles?
Stretching meets you where you are... and is equally stimulating for the very flexible and inflexible. Regardless the nervous, muscular, and skeletal systems are stimulated, creating a freer and a wider range of motion.
