"Stretch Therapy is the most complete flexibility system I have had the pleasure of finding, especially for the beginner–intermediate; it is the perfect entry point." Matt H., United Kingdom
We get it.
Why do so many dance teachers and gymnastics coaches struggle to teach adults how to become flexible? Usually, it's because they became flexible as children, and what works with children does not work with adult bodies.
We know all the secrets to working with an adult body, and how to make it flexible.
Not a rigid sets-and-reps approach.
What makes The Stretch Therapy Method so special is that it is designed for normal, adult bodies of all sizes, shapes and physical abilities.
The Stretch Therapy Method teaches participants how to explore their own bodies; how to find and eliminate any restrictions; and in the process you find out what works for your unique body. In the process, you'll learn how to feel all parts of your body more keenly.
Add the powerful relaxation exercises, a fundamental part of the method, and you have a system that shows you how to let go of the instinctive, protective tension we all feel. This cannot be forced; it must be experienced.
Learn from the guy who wrote the books.
Kit Laughlin wrote the books Overcome neck & back pain, now in its 4th edition, and the standard text in the field for self-help for these problems. Stretching & Flexibility, now in its second edition, and Stretching & Pregnancy. All are best sellers.
We want to share this body of knowledge with you. The Stretch Therapy Method is a down-to-earth, authentic system with detailed and careful instruction. It provides a balanced and genuine approach that's inclusive of all levels and all people. We'll help you to unlock your body.
