Welcome to Stretch Zone
Same body, new feeling. Come to Stretch Zone!
Stress, tension, and body aches are not optional, unfortunately. We accumulate these physical ailments and they start to take a toll after a long enough period of time and before you know it, even the most basic activities become strenuous and your posture might even change. Although these factors might not be optional, you do have a choice in feeling better, you have the choice to stretch the pains away.
Our professional stretch therapists at Four Points will work with you through a series of dynamic stretches designed to relieve the tension and by extension, those common aches, and pains. Our stretches are guided by The Stretch Zone Method® a system created for a neurological approach to stretch therapy.
How does it work? Well, your body carries natural nervous energy and its job is to prevent overstretching your muscles. The problem with this reflex is that it also prevents you from doing the most beneficial stretches. Our method works to reduce this natural tension and get those movements that can unlock your full range of motion and improve muscle recovery.
You can feel the results in just 30-minutes. Come try us out for free!
– Pain relief

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.
