Welcome to Stretch Zone
Range of motion decreases as pain, tension, and stress increase. Age can also be a significant factor in making the once doable nearly impossible. If this is happening to you, meet with our stretch practitioners at our Fort Union stretch gym.
Did you know that you lose mobility every year? Up to 1% less maneuverability a year. That’s regardless of how much you exercise and keep in shape. Thankfully, the Stretch Zone Method re-educates your body, preventing tension from affecting you.
See us at our stretch studio in Fort Union, Utah, to increase your muscle functionality. We have an experienced group of stretch practitioners at each location who masterfully work your muscles and joints to improve your stretch reflex – letting you increase your range of motion.
Sit back, relax, and let your stretch practitioner guide you through the steps. Each session will be safe, comfortable, and packed with health-boosting benefits. Furthermore, consistent assisted stretching sessions at our Fort Union stretch studio can drastically increase your mobility.

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.
