The result is a feeling of increased muscle control, flexibility and range of motion. Essentially, stretching should be done gently and slowly at all times while observing the reaction by body tension, facial expression and resistance. Do not stretch beyond the client’s level of tolerance. Stretching would gradually trigger relaxation in the muscle and release spams area as well as increase blood circulation
