Notes on how to use Stretch Therapy, written for an experienced coach who is a new user of Stretch Therapy (Chris Sommer)
Coach Sommer witnessed some incredible changes in his athletes after Kit worked with them, in short bursts on a number of workshops he attended at GB headquarters, then in Scottsdale Arizona. And Kit was asked to present a number of half-day Stretch Therapy workshops at Coach’s own workshops—a great opportunity for the GB community to see ST in action. Following these experiences, and knowing how Coach worked with his own athletes, Kit decided to write this article to highlight the very significant differences in the ST and GB approaches to improving mobility and flexibility.
Stretching exercises and routines that simply work for adult bodies.
Relaxation, Meditation, and Mindfulness
Why is true relaxation so rare? We all think we understand what this word means, but there’s a massive gulf between hearing the term and experiencing deep relaxation in the body and the mind. Let us help you how to find this state within yourself.
Stretch Therapy began with a tight, occasionally competitive, athlete trying to find a way out of constant pain and tension and over many years has become an efficient method for achieving grace, ease, and relaxation in the body. This section contains many articles that explore the context of where back pain is experienced, and a number of thought pieces that explore the very meaning of ‘rehabilitation’ in the current era, as well as the original paper “The hidden causes of low back pain” which led to the book ‘Overcome neck & back pain”. Please forward these to family and friends.
These are the ‘behind the scenes’ background pieces (some written while Kit was doing Master’s and PhD research, so heavily influenced by his philosophical work in logic) and they are the underpinnings of the Stretch Therapy system.
Kit is often asked to write technology pieces for different forums. If you are intending to make videos for YouTube or the like, knowing the basics can speed the process enormously.
