Changing the way you stretch changes everything. Ki-Hara Resistance Stretching is the revolutionary technique that uses a person’s own resistance in the strengthening and elongating of muscles. Simply put, Ki-Hara makes muscles more powerful. A Ki-Hara Certified Trainer uses resistance stretching to strengthen and condition muscles throughout their entire range of motion, instantly improving an athlete’s power, speed and strength. Ki-Hara trains the body eccentrically and concentrically by moving the arms and legs in specific rotational and diagonal patterns. By contracting and lengthening muscles at the same time, Ki-Hara helps develop stronger muscles throughout their entire length, helping athletes get more out of their muscles. But that’s not all Ki-Hara can do. It’s also helpful in creating a stronger core, solving muscular imbalances and it can even speed up recovery time. To see Ki-Hara in action, click here.
Mashing is a combination of Thai massage and foot shiatsu that helps prepare the muscles for optimal stretching. Every Ki-Hara Resistance Stretching session uses mashing to loosen up the muscles and to help flush toxins from the body. It will leave you feeling more energized and help quicken your body’s recovery time.
