Thai Stretching – Rockford, IL

Circle of Wellness now offers Thai Stretching therapy, administered by therapists that have been trained and educated in this specialty technique.

Thai Stretching Therapy is also referred to as Thai Yoga, because the practitioner uses their hands, knees, legs, and feet to move you into a series of yoga-like stretches. People who try Thai stretching sometimes say it is a bit like doing yoga, but with the assistance of the practitioner to guide you into the poses, while also stretching, pulling and pressing. Muscle compression, joint mobilization, and acupressure are also used during Thai stretching.
