Stretching Techniques: Enhancing Flexibility and Massage Effectiveness at Body Mechanics

Welcome to Body Mechanics Orthopedic Massage, where we blend the science of healing with the art of caring. Our approach to wellness extends beyond traditional massage therapy; we advocate for incorporating stretching and mobility techniques to enhance flexibility and maximize the therapeutic effects of our massages.

The Power of Flexibility

Flexibility is a key component of overall health, enabling better movement, reducing injury risk, and enhancing muscle function. At Body Mechanics, we understand the critical role flexibility plays in not only improving your mobility but also in enhancing the outcomes of our massage therapies.

Incorporating Stretching with Massage

Integrating stretching and mobility into your massage therapy regimen has many benefits. Stretching lubricates the joints, improves the muscle’s end range of motion, increases proprioception (your body’s ability to feel where it is in space), decreases muscle pain and tightness, and feels good! Our sessions incorporate stretching at various phases during the treatment for your benefit, which is also a part of the aftercare process. Your therapist will discuss your stretching and mobility home care with you so that you can maintain your massage results between sessions.

Tailored Stretching Techniques for Every Body

Here are types of stretching you might receive in your massage therapy session:

Dynamic Stretching: Engage in gentle, active movements to warm up your muscles. Dynamic stretching is often soothing and repetitive and can help to lubricate the joints. We incorporate these as needed for tight areas and as an assessment tool.

Static Stretching: During sessions, these prolonged stretches enhance proprioception and alleviate muscle tightness. As part of post-massage home care, focus on holding stretches to extend muscle length and enhance relaxation benefits.

PNF Stretching: With guidance from our therapists, engage in Proprioceptive Neuromuscular Facilitation stretching to achieve flexibility gains. These stretches involve static stretches combined with resistance to help you increase your range of motion. We do these types of stretches in cycles to help with gains.
