When it falls under stress, the connective tissue in our bodies can shorten and thicken – leaving us with soreness, aches and pains. For many people, a good night’s sleep is enough to return the connective tissue to normal – but there’s no need to despair if you’re one of those who needs a little extra help. The Rossiter System uses stretches to lengthen the connective tissue, putting an end to aches and pains.
How Rossiter Works
This pain relieving technique is taught in the form of workshops run by Certified Rossiter Coaches, and comprises a variety of stretches designed to reduce muscular pain and tightness. Stretches are generally performed as a pair, with the coach ‘anchoring’ the client as they move.
There are over thirty techniques which make up the Rossiter System – these target specific areas on the body, from head to toe. During a workshop or workout session, your coach will explain how to perform these stretches as well as physically assisting you – hopefully helping the pain to melt away.
The benefits of a Rossiter System session can usually be felt 20-30 minutes after finishing – you should find you feel less pain and are able to move with greater flexibility.
If you suffer from any of the following, you may find that the Rossiter System can help:
- Knee pain
- Lower back pain
- Neck stiffness
- Sore shoulders
- Hip pain
- Carpal tunnel syndrome
- Elbow tendonitis (tennis elbow)
As with any form of physical manipulation, it’s important that you check with a doctor to make sure you are suitable for this treatment – they will advise you if they think there are any risks.
The Rossiter system was developed in 1990 by Richard Rossiter, who wanted a solution to his own chronic shoulder, arm and neck pain.
