Global Body Stretching, Using the K-Stretch 

 

Active Fascia System Stretching and Proper Posture Alignment

 

Global Body Stretching was developed to release the tension generated as a result of everyday activities. The body is exposed to muscle tension during every day activities such as sitting watching T.V., using a smart phone, driving or sitting in a chair or on an airplane for long hours.


These muscle tensions become chronic when they are not treated, predisposing the body to injuries, such as neck and back pain, body stiffness, numbness and tingling in hands, forward head posture, problems with walking, falls, pain after working out, etc.


The body is all connected through a fascia which covers the muscles of the whole body and is just one fascia. That is why a knee pain could be the result of a hip condition, or numbness and tingling in the hand is related to neck problems because they are all connected.
 

The fascia system is a thin layer of connective tissue that recovers the whole body from head to toe, surrounding the musculoskeletal system, nervous system, respiratory system, and digestive system.


 The fascia system gives support, stability and shape to each structure in the body. It is an adaptive tissue with under stress or trauma reorganizes itself to the change becoming tight and restricted.


 In a normal stage, the fascia is relaxed, but the presence of trauma, poor posture, repetitive sport injuries, and emotional factors, change its normal elasticity and viscosity pulling ligaments, muscles, bones in attempt to protect the body from further damage.

Unlike single muscle stretching, Global Body Stretching works on the whole body from head to toe to release the tension in tight muscles, and restore the muscle balance, flexibility and tone in weak muscles.
 

The hammock is a revolutionary system for global body stretching techniques, which creates a postural alignment preserving the anatomy and physiology of the body without stressing other structures.
 

 


Full Spectrum Physical Therapy utilizes the innovative  K-Stretch Hammock created in Spain by Danilo Barzio with its multifunctional equipment variables that can be adjusted to the client’s level of movement.  The body can gradually be changed to a more advanced posture through a series of exercises and breathing techniques.
