Why is this still an issue in the fitness industry? Stretching what? muscle, connective tissue? I still wonder how many FT’s know why a muscle has tension and what happens to a muscle and its connective tissue when you “stretch” it? Did your certification include a study on Neurology? Love to hear your opinion?
karin, so glad that you think outside the box! Keep using the MELT sounds like a cool technique. Question concerning MELT and STRETCHING? Does MELT take into account: 1) Joint Protective Reflexes, 2) Protective Muscle Spasms, 3) Guarding and 4) Recurrent Patterning? Finally how does MELT influence the Autonomic Nervous System (ANS), the Limbic System and Mechanoreceptors ( GTO, Ruffini Endings, Free Nerve Endings, Pacinian Corpuscles, Muscle spindle, Meisner Corpuscles, Merkel’s Disk)? If not? there is another thechnique that does! Good to hear from you Karin!
