The Real Way to Stretch That Works. Becoming flexible in all ways.

Resistance Flexibility is based on the scientific discovery that muscles need to contract while being stretched, like how all animals stretch. As the muscles eccentrically contract while being stretched, the muscles release enzymes that result in transfiguration of the fascia and regeneration of the other tissues. Muscles eccentrically contracting while being elongated to produce immediate, cumulative, and sustainable increases in flexibility and strength. Predictable concomitant benefits can occur for each of the 16 different types RFT stretches: biomechanical, physiological, psychological, emotional, and spiritual. RFT is a subtractive technology removing the traumas and ADFST.

WARNING: Without the contraction of the muscles during the stretch potential damage can occur to joint structures and increases in flexibility do not occur and are not sustainable.


Practice 16 Assisted RFT Stretches — Six degrees of freedom of joints create 8 kinematic patterns for the lower and upper body. Analyze where Accumulated Dense Fascia and Scar Tissue (ADFST) is in the 16 muscle groups. Begin to develop the ‘feel’ for successful assisting.

Topics Include: RFT Applied Kinesiology- Two actions of muscles, When to Stretch and when to Strengthen, 3 Dimensional Vector Approach to Assisting, ,Bone Rotational Interrelationships (BRI),5 Conscious Choices,16 Types of Tissue Heath, Basic Problem Solving
