It could be physical, mental or emotional, and the way our bodies react to stress is by tightening & stiffening.  If not treated properly, one’s quality of life is sure to deteriorate due to pain; causing a more rapid acceleration of  aging in the mind, body & spirit.

How Shane landed on Fusion Stretching Technique

I wrote papers on PNF, Proprioceptive Neuromuscular Facilitation, in the early ’90’s in undergrad. I was amazed with the ability to create movement change and consequently performance change by manipulating mechanoreceptors within the neuromuscular unit. About twelve years ago, I began following Gray Cook, the renowned physical therapist who created Functional Movement Systems.  This system is founded on the notion that therapists often spend time locked into a joint when we need to look at larger movement patterns.  On one occasion, he posed the question, Why is it that an individual can show tightness in one area like ones hip flexors on an overhead squat but not have the same tightness appear when we lie them on the table.   I immediately visualized this notion of a fascial restriction and decided that I wanted to learn more about this.  

How did this concept come into existence?

About fifteen years ago when I would visit my mother whose health was waning, I would lay her down and start working on her. I would stretch a little here and rub a little there.  She would say, “Oh… this is what you do.” At the time I was only doing rehab and performance training.  When I told her, “No, this isn’t really what I do.”  She said, “Well it should be.”  I realized then that there was a place for something more therapeutic than massage.  As time went on and I was fortunate enough to have kept some clients for as much as twenty years. I began spending more and more time on the table. This was a result of how many individual needs changed over time. Almost aways there was more need for mobility and function over strength and fitness. Because I remembered my time with my mom and I had a clinical background, I embraced these changes. – Shane Cox, Founder

How often should I get Fusion Stretching to have optimal results?

Frequency can range from once a week to once a month or on a needs basis. Generally you can stretch as much as you want as long as you aren’t sore. Fusion Stretching should be pain-free, relaxing, and restorative. Each stretch builds on the last this. This cumulative effect creates a more mobile body. Our goal is to build each session on the next and get each person in a more flexible state.

Why Stretch Fusion?

After over 20 years of doing fitness assessments, I came to realize that muscle imbalances indicated during a movement screen were not always visible on the table or during the screen itself. I knew that the root cause of these discrepancies was a fascial restriction. This is what led me to fascial stretch therapy (Fusion Stretching Technique).
