Flexibility Training

Ki-Hara Resistance Stretching

Ki-Hara Resistance Stretching is an innovative approach to flexibility training. By contracting the muscle as it is lengthened, tension and torque is taken out of the muscles and joints. The results are protection from improper stretching, more balanced, powerful core stable movements, effectively addressing muscle imbalances which are at the root of most injuries. It is a balanced, whole body integrated approach to well-being and creates lasting change inside and out.

Ki (Qi) = Circulating Life Force Energy

Hara  = Center Axis, Core, where  Ki/Qi Energy is cultivated and stored and circulated through body  

Ki-Hara is helping create optimal flow of movement and energy

I visited the Restoration Space yesterday ‘cause I was feeling a little “over-trained” and Meg recommended that I have a session with Susan Bianchi, who specializes in Ki-hara Resistance Flexibility work (I had no idea what to expect) and I have been to many, many different practitioners over the years, Susan is absolutely amazing...she is so patient, knowledgeable, and worked thru my issues (I have many) in the most unexpected ways (she even did a session with my 11-year-old daughter who said she felt unbelieveable after), with that being said, I highly recommend that you check out The Restoration Space and all their practioners and secondly, if you are an edurance athlete and/or anyone who is dealing with aches, pains, & flexibility issues...you HAVE to schedule a visit with Susan. - Paul A.
