    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.

    Andrea spent over 14 years in the health and fitness industry in various sales and leadership roles at a time when the industry was rapidly evolving with new technology, products, services and brands. While she left the industry in 2011 to further her sales career, she never lost her passion for wellness, health and fitness. She learned about Stretch Zone while training to compete for her first amateur bodybuilding competition to celebrate her 50th birthday. One stretching session in, and she was sold on the benefits as a client. A month of stretching and she was ready to buy her first franchise location.
