The way in which we approach flexibility now is very different to the way we used to think about flexibility, even 5 years ago. We have know for years that flexibility is not just about muscle tension, and that it is greatly impacted by other factors such as neural tension, fascial mobility and other factors like stress. However, our understanding of these elements, especially in the world of fascia, has deepened with recent research.

This has helped us to review the way in which we treat flexibility dysfunction and restrictions in the body. Your ability to understand your own body is essential in achieving your ultimate flexibility. Make sure to work your way through the wide variety of articles and videos on this page to learn more about the fascinating world of flexibility!
