Rossiter Stretching Technique
Rossiter Stretching Technique (RST) is a series of powerful and effective two-person pin-and stretch release techniques for addressing structural pain and restriction of movement at its source, the body’s fascia, ligaments, tendons, collagen, elastin – collectively called connective tissue. Tight connective tissue is the source of stress, immobility, and pain in the body.
Rossiter Stretching quickly restores connective tissue to its natural, healthy state. Strategic anchoring of tissue with the Coach’s foot, while the client executes specific motions and simultaneously the entire body is in a “Locked” position. This creates a tensile framework body-wide which delivers more extensive and longer-lasting results. The client is fully in charge of the session, and results are generally instantaneous and profound. Pain relief, increased range of motion, improved circulation and nerve conduction are all end results of the RST workouts.
Thousands of bodyworkers, fitness and health professionals have been trained in this modality over the last 30 years!
Rossiter Stretching is dedicated to bringing this unique form of pain prevention and relief to everyone who can benefit. Individuals, bodyworkers, companies and their employees, health-care professionals, seniors, athletes, coaches, athletic trainers, municipalities, workers – anyone whose body hurts because of overuse, repetitive strain or injury.
RST stretches the body from the inside out - while other bodyworks work from the outside in. It's a quick, effective and most importantly non-invasive way to get the results you want. The proprietary locking concept engages the other 90% of connective tissue that is not being focused on. This creates a tensile framework for the specific stretch to occur within. It makes the local work global and yields better results that last longer.
Developed through the concept of Rolfing - Rossiter Stretches utilizes weight (with the foot) for greater traction and active participation for maximum results.
Why is RST so different to other techniques?
What sets RST apart is the speed with which results occur and the involvement of the client in the stretches. Unique to the RST are:
- Active client participation and involvement. Based on the concept that two people working and moving together can increase the power, effectiveness, speed and amount of tissue that can be changed at any one time. RST requires the client to move and stretch his/her own tissue with a Rossiter Stretching Coach’s help and guidance.
- A system-wide approach to pain relief and well-being. RST encompasses a series of predictable, well-defined two-person techniques that are easy to teach and easy to learn. RST loosens and lengthens the entire system of tissue that feeds into the pain, no matter where it arises or presents.
- A focus on the cause of pain, not the symptoms of pain. Like many other complementary/alternative therapists – and unlike traditional medicine – RST zeroes in on the causes of pain, stress, tightness and related symptoms that arise when the connective tissue becomes short, tight, traumatized or constricted inside the body.
Enable your clients, friends & family to reach their fitness and health goals much quicker, giving them the quality of life they want with a better range of movement, increased flexibility and reduced or elimination of pain.
