Will I be uncomfortable or sore after stretching?
Rarely. When the body is positioned and stabilized correctly, the body doesn’t feel fear. Communication is paramount to remove any anxiety to fully relax and receive the most optimal and safe stretch. The client is always informed of where they will feel each stretch, and clients always choose their preferred stretch intensity. Stretch Zone stretches are done using our 3, 5, 7 intensity scale to ensure that no one gets close to the end of their tolerance.
Sometimes, there may be slight soreness after the first stretch session from the break-up of adhesions. Some people form adhesions that cause muscles to be ‘glued’ together. This inhibits your full range of motion. Isolating and stretching these muscles can cause adhesions to break up, resulting in a minor soreness similar to what you would feel after a good workout.
