Stretching Q & A
What is stretching?
Stretching is a physical activity that places your body in various positions that aim to lengthen your muscles and soft tissues.
Aerobic exercise and muscle-building activities are important for good health. But stretching is an essential part of your fitness routine that you may overlook.
Stretching improves mobility and flexibility. It reduces the risk of injury and helps you maintain independence. You should be stretching your muscles every day, whether you work out regularly or not.
At APMI Wellness Center, the fitness experts offer stretching therapy to improve flexibility, overall health, physical training, and athletic performance.
What are the benefits of stretching?
Regular stretching keeps your muscles flexible, strong, and healthy. Some of the benefits of stretching therapy include:
Better joint range of motion
Improvement in athletic performance
Enhanced muscle efficiency
Lower risk of injury
When you fail to stretch your muscles and your body, the muscles shorten and tighten. During physical activity, your short and tight muscles may be unable to fully extend to support the movement, placing you at risk of injury.
What can I expect from stretching therapy?
Stretching therapy at APMI Wellness Center is a form of bodywork and self-care. The fitness experts customize your stretching therapy to increase your joints’ range of motion, enhance flexibility, and improve breathing practices.
Stefon and Dominique add a level of personalization to each client’s experience, while also using gentle practices to ensure progress and reduce pain.
During your stretching therapy, the fitness experts work through upper and lower body muscle groups in order to offer a full-body assessment and experience. Stretch therapy sessions may be 30, 60, or 90 minutes long.
In addition to stretching therapy, Stefon and Dominique may also add cryotherapy or personal training to your routine.
What happens after stretching therapy?
Depending on your fitness needs and goals, the experts at APMI Wellness Center may schedule regular stretching therapy sessions for you to help improve your flexibility and strength.
They also create a stretching routine for you to do at home. Stretching therapy with Stefon and Dominique offers many benefits, but to make gains and maintain results, you must add stretching to your daily routine.
