Welcome to Stretch Zone
Treat your body how it deserves.
From the pros to the Average Joes, Stretch Zone has brought countless people the healing benefits of stretching and you could be next. Mounting tension and stress take a toll on your body and without the proper care, your mobility and flexibility can be severely compromised. Our proven methodology can help reverse the effects of time and stress by unwinding tense muscles, improving circulation, and helping you move more effectively.
Our stretch therapists in Broomfield are all trained to use the proprietary equipment and Stretch Zone Method® that has been used with enormous success by athletes in the NFL, MLB, NBA, and ATP. Our success is the result of our muscle isolation and assisted stretching techniques designed to focus on the function of your muscles and joints rather than elasticity.
At Stretch Zone, Broomfield, we work to retrain your muscles to override your natural stretch reflex that prevents deeper stretches. Because our method requires no work from you, we can improve your mobility without pain or discomfort.
We can help you improve the way your body feels. Find out how with a free 30-minute stretch!

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.

Mike's health and wellness journey began when he joined ROTC in college and really got into the fitness aspect of the military. Through weightlifting, training with Navy SEAL’s, and doing mixed martial arts he learned so much about what the body is capable of and in many cases the body’s breaking point. One of his biggest achievements was to fly jets in the Navy as its one of the most competitive jobs in the military and he is very proud to have had that experience. After leaving the Navy he found himself with a plethora of injuries and without the means to properly get those injuries fixed. So Google and YouTube became his doctors and he learned how to fix himself. It was through that journey of repairing his own health that he found one of his great passions in life and decided that he would dedicate himself to helping others through their own health journeys. This has led him to Stretch Zone as well as furthering his education in Holistic Health.
