What is the difference between Stretching and Massage?

  • Stretching is performed with clothes on, reducing the anxious feelings sometimes felt with massage.

  • Stretching can activate deep postural muscles without the use of digging into sensitive areas sometimes felt during massage.

  • The benefits of stretching are seen immediately with increased movement in the body. As an example, the ability to bend over and tie shoes without strain.
