Welcome to Stretch Zone
Professional athletes have trusted the Stretch Zone Method to give their bodies the extra push they need to reach their maximum potential. Now, you can too. The stresses of daily life can put a lot of unnecessary tension on our bodies, decreasing our range of motion and ability to move around as quickly as we once could. The great news is that something can be done to reverse it.
At our West Memorial Stretch Zone location in Houston, our experienced and friendly stretch practitioners will guide your body in ways that will increase your mobility. We won’t be doing this by making your body stretch as much as possible. We’ll accomplish it by re-educating your muscle’s nervous energy.
It’s very simple too, as you won’t have to put in any effort. We take care of it all.

Fun Facts About Houston
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.
