From the Publisher

"Facilitated Stretching is based on a very sound understanding of flexibility training. It teaches you how to safely use the principles of stretching on your own or with a partner, in your clinical practice, or on the training field to improve the quality of your health and physical performance.

Facilitated Stretching stresses the importance of flexibility training for everyone, not just athletes and fitness enthusiasts. Highlighted are precise, practical, safe and specific directions to stretch the major muscles of the body. The emphasis on self-stretching makes the CRAC techniques easy to incorporate into any busy lifestyle. I use these techniques in my clinical practice as well as to teach all my clients the importance of flexibility in their lives.

Facilitated Stretching is easy to read and filled with helpful photographs and diagrams. It is a valuable resource for the sports therapist, athletic trainer, sports physician, coach, competitive athlete, new fitness enthusiast—anyone leading an active lifestyle."

John Balletto, LMT, NCTMB Massage Therapist and Educator Center for Muscular Therapy, Providence, RI

Format: Paperback
As a 3rd year massage therapy student, I was looking for THE book that would demonstrate to me in a clear concise fashion the best streatching techniques to use when the client is on the table during treatment. Not only are the written explanations easy to understand, the DVD demonstrations are most helpful. The PNF stretches I have used on clients so far have been very effective.
