Partner Stretch Styles

Static The universally accepted stretching protocol in which a muscle or group of muscles is taken to the furthest point and held without momentum or movement. This style is the least complicated and often the most relaxing.

Proprioceptive Neuromuscular Facilitation (PNF) Combines passive stretching and isometric stretching for maximum static flexibility. PNF stretching usually employs a partner to provide resistance against the contraction and to take the muscle through its full range of motion.

Active Isolated Partner stretch style using a series of systematic contractions with the agonist (muscle being stretched) muscle group. This advanced method requires the practitioner to be in a completely non-weight-bearing position. Partner assistance is crucial with active isolation and is very performance oriented. I can take a client through the entire range of motion stretches.
