Pin & Stretch
Course Description: Pin and Stretch Technique is a movement based muscle lengthening approach that is highly effective at assisting/treating issues with muscle, tendon, ligament and fascia. Tissues that may appear abnormal with regard to texture, tightness, movement, and function are treated with stretching combines with sliding force, which are intended to increase movement of the tissues by removing or breaking up adhesions. You may accomplish this by way of C-clamping or direct pressure applied tissue you wish to release. Pin and Stretch requires client participation for its overall effectiveness with regards to Targeted areas that are identified in muscles and tendons where overuse or dysfunction may have caused repetitive injury and the potential for scar tissue build up. As a result, this may cause nerve irritation, shorten the potential length of muscles and may produce tendons irritation. By this application of direct pressure while the client performs specific motions to lengthen the tissue in the specific movements, the result is to ultimately release underlying tissues. This has the potential to increases blood flow, reduces nerve pain, improve range of motion, and increases strength.
Course Description: Cupping therapy is a Traditional Chinese Medicine technique that has been used for thousands of years as a highly effective treatment for a variety of conditions, including skin conditions and musculoskeletal complaints.
