Stretch Therapy Sessions
If you’re thinking about taking an online stretch therapy in Sydney but not yet sure, in this blog, you’ll know the basic information and benefits of having stretch therapy. Moreover, all the stretching exercises and training that you’ll learn here will help you improve your body’s performance so you can perform your daily activities with less or without pain in your every movement. In fact, a single movement from you usually takes up to 19 muscles that are in control, so taking stretch therapy is worth the money.
Also, a lot of people try to skip this part because they don’t know what they’re doing, lack time, or motivation, and plenty of other excuses So, one of the solutions to that is by consulting an expert about stretch therapy and asking for some kind of a recommendation, or list of stretching exercises that you can do easily.
What will happen in a Stretch Therapy Session?
In a way, stretch therapy is similar in approach to massage therapy. Both of them can be delivered 1-on-1 with your therapist. First, you fill out a form about your medical history and the therapist conducts a quick assessment. They will focus on what soft tissue issues hinder your body movement’s mobility and flexibility with a practical plan.
What does Stretch Therapy Involve?
Our Online Stretch therapy session will involve the help of props like straps, balls, foam rollers, bolsters, sticks, chairs, towels etc to help the soft tissues and nerves feel more neurologically relaxed to get deeper into stretches. The body will not allow you to stretch much without feeling warm, and relaxed as possible. Sometimes there is a level of discomfort or better described as a sensation - and we ask that you tune into your body, be mindful and remember to breathe.
Can you Relax any more?
This will benefit you in stretch and massage therapy, as a tensed up body preparing for attack will not be able to reap the full benefits of the therapy. Obviously if there is intense pain, one should ease in and out of positions and check the form with the therapist, who should be carefully observing you and adjusting where necessary.
The mantra of Stretch Therapy is to move slowly, with full awareness.
What are the Benefits of Stretch Therapy?

Regular Stretching vs Assisted Stretching
A key difference with Stretch Therapy vs other stretching is the partner assisted stretching. There is solo stretching on your own, and partnered whereby someone else aids your alignment and depth of stretching, all of which can be taught in a class.
Generally you will learn the proper execution of the solo exercise techniques and know which muscles to focus on so they can get the most out of this stretch therapy, before attempting partnered stretches.
When it comes to assisted stretching, someone will help you with all the important things to know, and the DOs and DON’Ts during a stretch therapy workshop. Also, the one who will be assisting you is already knowledgeable about all the techniques and which muscles to focus on so that you will have a unique routine that is focused on your physical fitness needs. If you’re not familiar with the system of this therapy, don’t hesitate to contact an expert like us to assist you with stretch therapy classes.
