Partner assisted stretching also called neuromuscular stretching or proprioceptive neuromuscular facilitation (PNF) stretching has been shown to be highly effective at increasing flexibility and joint range of motion.
- Partner stretching draws on a modern stretching technique called PNF/resistance stretching, while Shiatsu Massage involves gentle finger and hand pressure, acupressure release points, and comfortable joint manipulations. We will work with simple stretches for the lower and upper body, paying particular attention to areas of tension in lower

What is partner stretching?
As your partner resists, slowly pull on your partner’s heel until the right leg is nearly completely extended. Reverse the movement, easing up on the pressure on your partner’s leg so the knee bends and the hamstring contracts. Contraction should be easier than extension for the stretch.
What are the 4 types of stretching?
4 Different Stretches for Different Situations
- Active Stretching. Active stretching involves holding a pose to utilize a targeted muscle group.
- Passive Stretching. This type of stretching is best for balance enhancement and flexibility.
- Dynamic Stretching.
- PNF Stretching.
What type of stretching requires a partner?
PNF stands for Proprioceptive Neuromuscular Facilitation. This type of stretching is often referred to as partner stretching because two people are needed to perform the movements. There are many forms of PNF, but most involve an isometric hold followed by a static stretch of the same muscle group.
What are the 3 types of PNF stretching?
The three main PNF techniques are hold-relax, contract-relax, and hold-relax with agonist contraction. If you’re unfamiliar with how these partner stretching techniques work, it’s best to consult a physical therapist or personal trainer.
What is passive flexibility?
Static-passive flexibility (also called passive flexibility ) is the ability to assume extended positions and then maintain them using only your weight, the support of your limbs, or some other apparatus (such as a chair or a barre).
What is static stretching?
Static stretches are those in which you stand, sit or lie still and hold a single position for period of time, up to about 45 seconds. Dynamic stretches are controlled movements that prepare your muscles, ligaments and other soft tissues for performance and safety.
What are the 7 types of stretching?
The different types of stretching are:
- ballistic stretching.
- dynamic stretching.
- active stretching.
- passive (or relaxed) stretching.
- static stretching.
- isometric stretching.
- PNF stretching.
What are stretching exercises called?
The most common types include static stretching, dynamic stretching, PNF (proprioceptive neuromuscular facilitator), as well as ballistic stretching. A certified and experienced stretch practitioner will tell you which type of stretching exercise is the most appropriate one for you.
What are different stretches called?
There are four types of stretching – active stretching, passive stretching, dynamic stretching, and proprioceptive neuromuscular facilitation (PNF) stretching, which involves table stretching.
What is a dynamic stretch?
Dynamic stretching is a movement-based type of stretching. It uses the muscles themselves to bring about a stretch. It’s different from traditional “static” stretching because the stretch position is not held.
What is a contraindicated stretch?
Contraindicated exercises are those that carry higher risks to joint structure, soft tissue, or other risks. Because the risks typically outweigh the benefits, these exercises are inappropriate for most individuals.
What are the two main types of stretching?
Dynamic stretching is most important before activity, while static stretching is most important after activity. Dynamic stretching helps prepare the body for exercise and decreases risks for injuries.
What is a ballistic stretch?
Ballistic stretching is popular among athletes, but is it safe for the average person? This intense stretching method uses bouncing movements to push your body beyond its normal range of motion. Whereas static stretches are performed slowly and gradually, the ballistic method stretches muscles much farther and faster.
What is an example of ballistic stretching?
Ballistic stretching involves stretching by bouncing into (or out of) a stretched position by making use of the stretched muscles as a spring that pulls you out of the stretched position, for example bouncing down repeatedly to touch your toes.
What is the difference between Met and PNF?
Another difference between MET and PNF is that the contraction during MET is performed at the initial barrier of tissue resistance, rather than at the end of the range of motion (ROM) of a joint .
