Integrative Stretching Curriculum

The goal of Integrative Stretching is to provide personal trainers, coaches, massage therapists, fitness professionals, movement therapists, and bodyworkers with an extra set of techniques and skills geared towards improving functional movements of their clients through assisted stretching and soft-tissue manipulation techniques. 

Many stretch therapy certification programs are limited in content, creativity, and time practicing.  In this program you'll learn more than just fascial release, PNF, or AIS.  You'll learn principles and skills that will enable you to adapt your approach to anyone, in any setting, and for many different goals.  You'll be encouraged through our module based system to continue your learning and education even after you receive your certification.  The learning doesn't end with this program.  That's why we also include study groups for those who've completed this program and people with advanced stretch therapy practices.  You are encouraged to learn more from other stretch methods and coaches as there is always new something to learn about stretching.

This comprehensive curriculum ensures you'll be given enough of a base to start your own assisted stretching practice or easily integrate it into your current work with clients who are looking to improve their health and fitness.  The first two module are filled with techniques that'll get you started in stretching your clients.  The second two modules involve more advanced skills for therapist looking to improve the entire process of integrative stretching which includes assessments and integrative exercises.  They also promote embodiment of the material by getting therapist to explore what it's like to train solely for flexibility. 

The last module includes more integrative work that demonstrates how integrative stretching can be effectively woven into anyone's current exercise routine.  People who are interested in stretching are most likely performing some sort of regular exercise as well.  Stretching and strengthening are often seen as opposites. This training will prove to you that they are two sides of one coin.
