Unlock your body’s flexibility with Stretch Zone.

We’ve reimagined stretching.

Having to deal with tension can cause the feeling of not being able to move around like you were once able to. You might not notice a large difference at first, but as time goes on, this will worsen if left untreated. The great news is that there’s a simple solution to stop this tension from worsening and even improve the way you feel!

Our Stretch Zone location in Bradenton offers easy and stress-free assisted stretching sessions. You’ll meet one of our amazing stretch practitioners who are extensively trained to manipulate your body in ways that will lead to less discomfort and better overall mobility.

The entire process is extremely simple as all you have to do is relax. We do all of the hard work for you. Once you’re ready, we’ll guide your body through dynamic stretches so that your muscle function will see a noticeable increase.

    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.
