1. No pain: Massage and stretching therapies that focus on rehabbing an injury or breaking up scar tissue can be pretty painful, but fascial stretching is incredibly gentle. You shouldn’t feel any pain. You should feel mild pressure, as well as a lengthening that is tractioning you out of your joints. It should feel rhythmic and soothing throughout the entire body.
2. Fast recovery: In addition to reducing soreness, fascial stretching improves blood flow to tired muscles, helping you to recover faster from tough training sessions with less soreness. Basketball legend, Charles Barkley, is a fan and made a video about how fascial stretching helps him get back in action. Link Here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=6aMcIt9QhVA
3. Improved performance: There’s a lot of science behind fascial stretching, including how it could help you run faster, lift heavier, boost endurance, improve coordination, and increase flexibility. But the most convincing evidence is that the Denver Broncos do fascial stretching, going as far as saying it helped them take home a Super Bowl trophy!
4. Injury rehab: Stretching the fascia breaks up scar tissue and increases the range of motion in injured areas.
5. Weight loss: Weight loss isn’t the aim of fascial therapy. However, when you feel better and move with less pain, you want to move more, and that can lead to more comfort in different types of exercises which help you lose weight.
