When you stretch you're not just stretching muscles alone. Muscles cannot be separated from the fascial tissue. By getting into a comfortable stretching position and waiting long enough, perhaps with the use of an inflatable therapy ball, the fascia's substance inside its fibrils, will go through a transition phase to where it can return to it's natural fluid state. This allows for more mobility and a general healthier state. Relaxing into a sustained position for at least 5 minutes invites deeper releases to be reached. The time period is essential for optimal benefits. Try it yourself to experience movement that feels freer and easier!
