Stretching-you've probably heard of it. The fitness market is flooded with conflicting and confusing information about stretching. In The Guide to Wellness through Stretching, physiotherapist Dale Deis and physiologist Ed Stiles have taken a stiff, old principle and increased its range of motion. By providing education, clear direction and dispelling myths and misunderstandings, Deis and Stiles reaffirm the many benefits of stretching for all bodies. In this user-friendly guide, readers will gain knowledge about the prevention and rehabilitation of injuries, self awareness of postural and movement restrictions, and the tools needed to apply the principles of healthy movement, using stretching as a base. The authors encourage self reliance, putting clients in the driver's seats of their own bodies, and offering a simple, tangible approach to moving, feeling, and functioning better.
