Top-down stretching: a proven philosophy
An ancient proverb states that “Where your mind goes, the body will follow.” And for good reason too, as studies show that relaxation begins with the head and flows downward through the body. That’s why the Streto Method follows a top-down approach: Streto /stret-ō/ – combining stretch and top-down symbolizes the total body wellness origins of our method and philosophy. From your head down to your toes, our stretch therapists perform a specific sequence of stretches to loosen individual muscle groups. Using slow, deliberate traction techniques, they help you move beyond your body’s inherent resistance to extend the range of motion, increase circulation, reduce tension, improve muscle function and more.
Let your muscles relax Greater flexibility means less stress on muscles during workouts and daily activities. Deep, synchronized breathing relaxes your mind and body. Reach farther Increased range of motion helps your joints feel more fluid and can stimulate the production of your body’s natural lubricants. Posture is important Improved flexibility promotes muscular balance, which can help you feel taller and stand straighter. Gentle, targeted stretching can rebuild posture from scratch. Supply meets demand Stretching boosts blood supply throughout the body by increasing elasticity in muscles, joints, connective tissue and blood vessels. More circulation means more oxygen and nutrients.
