Stretching a client during a regular massage session can be incredibly beneficial for the client and create lasting results. Reasons why therapists may shy away from incorporating stretching into a session are because of draping concerns, the level of comfort within the therapeutic relationship, or because the client did not request a “sports massage”
Stretching is not just for athletes or deep tissue work.
