How does Stretch Zone® compare to massage?
Massage stimulates mostly superficial muscles. 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 assisted stretching, the psoas can be isolated and stretched effectively without pain or discomfort. Stretch Zone does not require removal of clothing and our stretches can be performed in view of others. This allows for a greater level of comfort for guests and is a much different setting than a massage experience. And the results of assisted stretch are not just felt immediately following the stretch session like a massage but are long lasting.
