Rossiter Active Stretching
can help reduce and alleviate pain. Stretching your connective tissue with a Rossiter trained coach can provide lasting relief from pain whether it's newly surfaced or been reoccurring for years.

The Rossiter System addresses body pain at the source, connective tissue or fascia. When this webbing of connective tissue inside you gets tight from overuse or injury it can shorten and be the cause of your pain. Connective Release uses The Rossiter System of techniques to decrease fascia tension and strain. These moves are quick and effective at changing your pain by removing it at the source.


Photography Workshop:
