What is SportStretch?
SportStretch is a floor mat, movement based, full body routine that consists of both actively and passively stretching a client. It can be done as an individual treatment or integrated into the end of any massage. This work can be used as a warmup prior to activity, as it can invigorate an athlete and get them ready to move, or it can be applied as recovery work, to relax them after activity. You will learn that your intentions will determine the outcome of your work.
This course uniquely incorporates a combination of techniques such as Thai Massage, Compression, Active Isolated Stretching (AIS), Ashiatsu, Proprioceptive Neuromuscular Facilitation (PNF), Post Isometric Relaxation (PIR), Traction and various Myofascial and Myoskeletal techniques to create the SportStretch routine.
Why make the investment in this course? (A message from the founder and creator of SportStretch, Christy Swiatkowski, LMT)
I know this technique works because I use it on professional athletes in my practice, EVERYDAY. I am now getting feedback from several different professionals all over the country who have taken this course, and after they apply the SportStretch work, the results are always a variation of increased flexibility and a decrease in soft tissue injuries over time. This stretch routine has not only been a major benefit for the health and well being of my athletes but has also been a major source of income for me. It gives my hands and wrists a break from the constant pressure of deep tissue work, which helps me to keep going strong after 18+ years in the business of Sports Massage. Athletes actively look for body workers to stretch them and after completing this course, you will have added the skills to your practice to effectively be able to do so.
