Fascial Stretching Therapy in Grand Rapids MI
Target and improve the ﬂexibility of joints and muscles.
The three-dimensional web of connective tissue that permeates and connects all of your body’s structures together — and is the most important factor affecting your ﬂexibility — is called fascia.
Fascia is often overlooked in performance and overall ﬁtness.
If you begin to lose ﬂexibility your joints will deteriorate, your posture worsens, your physical appearance changes, muscular imbalances develop and you become more prone to pain and injury from simple actions. Daily aches, pains and fatigue that seem to have no obvious cause are likely the result of prolonged and accumulated restrictions in your fascial system. Our bodies lose ﬂexibility at an average rate of one percent per year!
Improve ﬂexibility and reduce pain with fascial stretching.
Unlike traditional stretching, fascial stretching therapy can dramatically improve your ﬂexibility by decompressing your joints and unwinding the connective tissue throughout your body.* Lack of ﬂexibility and general tightness can cause aches and pains and can signiﬁcantly affect your health and longevity. Fascia, when tight, can restrict range of motion and impair quality of movement. The fascial stretching therapy program at Body By Choice can enhance recovery after hard workouts and improve performance by optimizing soft tissue mobility and increasing range of motion.
