Everything you need to do about Ki-Hara Resistance Stretching
What is Ki-Hara Resistance Stretching?
Ki-Hara is an innovative form of body work that simultaneously strengthens and lengthens muscles. The sessions start off with a modified form of Thai Massage known as “mashing”, where the practitioner uses their feet to warm up the tissues. After the mashing, individual muscles are strengthened and lengthened creating stability in the joints.
Will the treatment hurt?
The stretching itself does not hurt, however the mashing is similar to a deep tissue massage which might cause some mild discomfort. Due to contracting the muscles while you stretch them, it is impossible to over-lengthen the target muscles.
What are the benefits of Ki-Hara Resistance Stretching?
There are multiple benefits to resistance stretching including:
– Building strength in a joint’s full range of motion.
– Decreasing muscle tension and trigger points that may have formed in your muscles.
– Decreasing joint pain.
– Increasing the length of a muscle for longer lasting results than any other form of mobility training.
What can I expect for my first session of Ki-Hara Resistance Stretching?
