The Rossiter system of stretching uses a series of deep stretches to re-model the body’s connective tissue and create natural space where it belongs which provides better mobility, freer movement and most importantly pain relief.
The stretches have been developed over several years and are based on the premise that when the body is correctly aligned (good structural integrity) it will move more freely and easily in all directions, as indeed it is designed to do.
The main basis for this is not the individual muscles we are often familiar with but the connective tissue system, a head to toe network of ligaments, tendons and most importantly fascia that holds everything together. When this tissue becomes overused or injured, it shortens and tightens which in turn leads on to many structural and sometimes health issues.
What can Rossiter stretching do for you?
Unlike muscle stretches, this is a deep workout and stretch and is not suitable for everybody. Rest assured though, that if Rossiter is not suitable for you, the Bowen Technique will be.
I have found that Rossiter works best with fit & healthy people used to exercise and generally being active, but who are struggling with any of the following:
nagging constant pain that won’t go away and often doesn’t respond to other more traditional therapies
all over aches including ones that seem to move around the body
repeating lower back and/or sciatic pains with no specific cause
tingling and numbness in limbs
recurring sports injuries
obvious muscle imbalances where one side is clearly dominant over the side – be that left to right or with legs, front to back.
