microStretching® at Sutherland and Chan Massage School

The microStretching® team spent the afternoon at Sutherland and Chan massage therapy school in Toronto. The staff and students were introduced to the history and key foundations of microStretching. Students were taught about the parameters and principles of the technique currently practiced by physiotherapists, registered massage therapists, chiropractors, athletic therapists, osteopaths, as well as kinesiologists. 

The students and our team discussed how microstretching compliments massage therapy sessions greatly, for their mutual appreciation in eliciting the parasympathetic nervous system.
