The word “flexibility” can touch upon different aspects of our lives, like physical flexibility or even being flexible as a personality trait — being able to “roll with the punches.” In the athletic sense, good posture and flexibility can offer lasting benefits to your health as well as your physical well being. Stretching is good for our muscles and our minds, and flexibility leads us through life with fewer injuries and an easier time with activities of daily life. Poor posture especially can be a problem, often leading to long-term aches and pains, sore muscles and joints, and more.

Jessica uses a Technique called Proprioceptive Neuromuscular Facilitation (PNF), followed by Post-Isometric Relaxation (PIR).  This method of stretching stresses rotation in the function of joints by a resisted isometric exercise and strengthening neurologically weakend muscles.  Jessica’s clients have shown much success with her application of PNF Stretching Technique, with improved workouts and flexibility, as well as less injuries.  Clients love this stretching technique and cannot wait for it at the end of every workout.

At UPL, Jessica Rapp helps you to improve your flexibility and posture, also improving other areas of your physical mobility and athletic performance.  Get in touch with any questions or concerns you may have about your own flexibility and posture!flexibility
