How does Stretch Zone compare to a massage?
Massage stimulates mostly superficial muscles, while stretching activates the deep postural muscles. For example, to massage the psoas muscle, massage therapists must dig their fingertips deep between the superficial muscles of the groin area, which is uncomfortable and awkward. With practitioner-assisted stretching, the psoas can be isolated and stretched effectively.
Stretch Zone does not require the removal of clothing, and our stretches are performed in view of others, allowing for a greater level of comfort for clients – a much different setting than a massage. The results of practitioner-assisted stretching are not only felt immediately following the stretch session but are long-lasting.
