|About the Rossiter System
Rossiter System Workouts are built on recognizing that PAIN IS INFORMATION and that having a pain-free, mobile body depends wholly on having enough internal space to function properly. The body's system of "space" is the connective tissue (CT). CT does what it says - it connects virtually everything to everything else in your body. It gives your body form, shape, and function.
When CT is healthy, it is naturally loose. When you have appropriate looseness or "space," your body has the ability to communicate with itself in the form of circulation of blood, nerve conduction and ease of movement. This is achieved because there is enough room for everything to move and communicate freely.
Stress, immobility, and pain occur when connective tissue gets tight, shortened, thickened, hard. This can happen with injury, overuse, misuse, non-use or age. Often it is a combination of these factors.
When we ignore increasing immobility and/or pain in our body, it often gets worse until we are forced to do something about it. The first thing you will usually notice is joint stiffness. You ignore that. Next, the area starts to ache a little. That is ignored. That ache gets more and more painful, and you are becoming increasingly unable to ignore this important information.
Think about those days you've spent sitting at a computer all day. Your neck and shoulders get tight. If you ignore it, the tightness gets worse, perhaps spreading to other areas in the form of a headache or arm and wrist pain.
Your body wants you to move, stretch and be active! A few Rossiter System techniques can immediately restore the looseness and flexibility to your connective tissue - back to where it should be. The pain and joint stiffness disappear and you can go back to feeling and moving better - quickly!
A key feature unique to the Rossiter System® is that of the Lock™. When a person does a Rossiter stretching technique, they execute specific body positions that engage as much CT throughout the entire body as possible. The result is effectively elongating the maximum amount of tissue for the maximum full body stretch - getting you better and longer-lasting results - head to toe.
