Stretch Therapy Classes for grace and ease in your body
Stretch Therapy (or ST for short) has been developed over the last 25 years by our mentor and friend Kit Laughlin. Kit and his dedicated team of professionals present Stretch Therapy classes and workshops world-wide. Through the creative input and interaction of its many teachers, practitioners and students, Stretch Therapy is constantly evolving.
Stretch Therapy is a comprehensive system that includes stretching, fascial remodelling, strengthening, neural re-patterning, and relaxation.
Applications of the Stretch Therapy approach span rehabilitation of specific physical problems, through development of more efficient alignment and movement patterns, all the way to improvement of elite athletic performance. Everyone will find themselves somewhere on this continuum!
We say that Stretch Therapy is a safe, yet extremely efficient, way to improve your flexibility, but that's only a convenient way to open the dialogue. As one starts to work with the body, new needs will be uncovered and you will find yourself pulling on one of the many strands of the Stretch Therapy approach. Everyone's path is unique, and our approaches reflect this reality.
As previously mentioned, the system is suitable for everyone, regardless of age or fitness level. It is used by pregnant women, teenagers, sports people coaches, employers and people of all ages all around the world.
