Assisted Stretching

A private session is your appointment for focused, personal attention tailored to your body, your needs and your goals. Private sessions can be the jump start you need to increase performance, heal from injuries, and start your journey to feeling better than ever before. It’s the fastest and most effective way to experience powerful freedom of movement.

Your personalized flexibility training program

A private session is your appointment for intensive and personalized flexibility training. It starts with a customized flexibility and strength training program tailored to your body, your needs, and your goals. We don’t simply prescribe a bunch of stretches. We assess your body in numerous positions - pushing and pulling to test your alignment and flexibility. We ask lots of questions, listen intently, and observe everything.

A stretch, diet, and life program

Then we begin creating a custom series of stretches and variations just for you.

During the private session, you work through your personal exercise program with our assistance. Plus we teach you how to stretch on your own, so you can practice in between sessions.

Also as part of your program, we give advice on diet, exercise and other pertinent aspects of your life.

Directly address your needs & goals

In privates you perform a demanding series of stretch exercises with guidance. We focus on the particular weaknesses and imbalances in your body. We also work on the things that you want to achieve or change. You’ll experience powerful improvements right away and realize dramatic gains in flexibility, strength, and health over time.

Maximum results over time

Over time, we can modify and intensify the program to meet your evolving needs and goals. Maximum improvements in flexibility, strength, posture, physical health, and mental fitness are the results.

Mashing

Mashing is a system of therapy that centers on one using their feet to facilitate deep and dramatic changes in another’s body.

Pressure can be applied to almost every part of the body, creating relaxation along Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) meridians to offer the following benefits:

  • frees up energy flow

  • assists in removing waste products from muscles

  • increases lymphatic flow and blood circulation

  • loosens up tight and sore muscles

  • addresses trigger points

  • creates significant improvements in movement

  • facilitates stress reduction

  • concomitant improvements in physiological and psychological health

Mashing can be for one’s whole body or can center on just one particular meridian muscle group. A whole body mashing can improve circulation and posture while targeted mashing can relieve deeper issues including chronic tenseness, knots, and adhesions inside the muscle.

Using the feet instead of the hands allows for a deeper effect on the body with less effort and wear and tear on the arms, wrists, hands, and fingers. This is especially true when working on large muscle groups and areas that contain accumulated dense fascia and scar tissue, which require significant amounts of pressure in order to optimally improve the health of the tissue. Over time and with practice, the feet can be just as sensitive as the hands… being able to feel the areas of the body that are the tightest while moving in just the right way to relieve the tenseness.

Mashing is a great way to warm up before exercise and is also helpful to flush the body afterward. People often get mashed before and/or after assisted stretching in order to facilitate their development. The same is true for self stretching. Of course, mashing is also a great activity just by itself!
