Welcome to Stretch Zone
Tension can come from two extremes – overworking your muscles and sedentary lifestyles. Did you know that you could be losing 1% of your flexibility and range of motion every year? With the Stretch Zone Method, we can help your body fight against this from happening.
If your muscles are continuously strained, they can become glued together, restricting your movement. We use proven stretch methods that will reduce this restriction and even reverse it. When you see us at our Cordova Stretch Zone in Fort Lauderdale, one of our expert stretch practitioners will move your body in ways that will get you to your maximum potential.
Everyone could use a good stretch, which is why we see everyone from athletes to the elderly. The process is super easy too. All you have to do is relax on one of our patented tables and we’ll handle the rest.
Are you ready to make a change for the better? Come try a free 30-minute stretch by making an appointment today!
Fun Facts About Fort Lauderdale
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.
