The Stretch Zone Method® addresses flexibility from a neurological perspective. This is achieved by dealing with the muscle’s nervous tension (“tonus”) to reach an optimal active range of motion. The goal is not to make a person more “flexible” or “elastic,” but rather enable you to move more functionally by re-establishing a more ideal resting muscle tone. By re-educating the associated nerve-muscle reflex, the Stretch Zone Method® leads to movement becoming easier and more efficient.
Rather than creating soreness by pulling on our limbs to extremes, the Stretch Zone Method® works through the nervous system to achieve lasting gains in flexibility and range of motion. The method rests on the notion that changing and re-educating our muscle’s nervous energy is a major factor in unleashing our body’s intended function. This nervous energy, known as the stretch reflex, is our body’s automatic defense against the dangers of over-stretching. Any movement that goes too fast or too far, or is held for too long, will cause your body to resist with the stretch reflex. Once the reflex is activated, your body has effectively said “no more” and resists the stretch. Any further attempt at stretching becomes counter productive and may even cause long term damage.
Shamus is a scratch golfer who played at Saint Ignatius High School in Chicago and Rollins College in Winter Park, Florida. He spent four years in B to B sales before joining the Stretch Zone team. As an athlete he always understood the benefits of stretching and now is excited to share his expertise in assisted stretching with those in the Chicagoland area.
Jim has been a Stretch Zone client for 3 years and liked the service and concept so much that he opened his own location with plans to expand in the western suburbs of Chicago. Jim plays his golf at Edgewood Valley CC locally and the Rees Jones Course at Breakers West in West Palm Beach, Florida. He credits his stretching routine to his improved flexibility, improved range of motion and lower handicap!
