A stretch session with Jordan is a hybrid of GTO stimulation, AIS and PNS stretching. The goal of the session is to find the dysfunction that may be causing discomfort or altered biomechanics and alleviate it. First we will identify where adhesions, overactive muscles and other dysfunctions may be. Use percussion therapy to stimulate the GTO of the muscles to calm the over activity and flush any build up of lactic acid. Now that the problem area is now maluble and relaxed to the point of being able to be lengthened we begin to stretch. Using AIS and PNS we are able to take the shortened and overactive muscles and put them back to their natural length and induce the correct amount of tension in that area. This will allow for the body to function more naturally and with less pain. A law of muscles is it will always align its self around trauma, now we get a chance to realign it around relief.
Jordan has been a Corrective exercise and Performance Enchancment Specialist through the National Academy of Sports Medicine since 2009 and 11. Being a Corrective Specialist Jordan has felt with various injuries and wanted to do more to be able to help the rehabilitation process. In 2016 Jordan began for study PNS and AIS stretching techniques through Dr. Rick Richey and Sean Snapp. Jordans approach to the body comes from the roots of corrective excercise, finding dysfunctions and providing awareness of these areas. With the correct balance Percussuion therapy and various stretches, Jordan will help the body operate more balanced, strengthened, and relaxed.
