The Myotatic reflex, also known as the "Stretch Reflex", is the automatic response within the body to a stretch stimulus. When a muscle is stretched to a certain length the spinal cord receives a signal to contract the muscle to protect it from injury. On account of the signal only having to go to the spinal cord rather than to the brain and back the impulse is very rapid and involuntary. Stressage Therapy literally helps retrain your body to avoid that impulse and by doing so research shows a muscle is able to lengthen to nearly two times it normal resting length.
