All our Flexperts have been trained in our scientifically-backed assisted stretching method and prior to training, everyone is assessed to ensure they have an in-depth knowledge of anatomy and physiology.
We don’t want to give away our techniques, but our model has been inspired by FR and FRC. All of our Flexperts are highly trained and come from therapeutic backgrounds such as soft tissue, sports therapy, fascia stretch therapy and others.
All three in the pictures are qualified, so the knowledge we have in stretching, anatomy and physiology, rehab and manual therapy is more advanced than any PT qualification.
Further, it’s important to note that assisted stretching technique cannot be assessed from a marketing picture.
With regards to the hamstring stretch with unsupported knee, that is dependent on the client, as we deal with their individual issues. The picture in question shows someone who is highly flexible and is in the middle of an isometric contraction. If you give the knee too much support, this can lead to hyperextension.
The picture that depicts a glute stretch shows one of the ways that the stretch can be done by a female therapist. Because of the female anatomy, it cannot be done the same way as the male therapist would do this.
The stretches pictured are not part of the corrective exercise continuum programme, so it is not relevant to mention this here.
We understand the corrective exercise protocol covers the lengthening of muscles with a four-step process, however, we follow a protocol designed specifically for assisted stretching.
Our focus is assisted stretching and we are not a rehabilitation clinic and do not claim to be.
