Many of us take our bodies for granted. We go about our everyday lives taking on stress, tension, and putting our biological vehicle through countless strains without realizing that to keep ourselves functionating at the levels we are accustomed to, we also need maintenance. Whether you are an office worker or a workout addict, give your body a break and the upkeep it needs with a professionally assisted stretch.
The science behind The Stretch Zone Method® is complex but the driving principle is quite simple – there is no one-size-fits-all for stretching, stretches should be designed to meet the needs of each body. That type of personalized approach is what you can expect from our professional stretch therapists at Lenexa. In conjunction with our proprietary equipment, we will work within the limitations of your body to get the best possible results in each stretch.
The key to The Stretch Zone Method® lies in understanding how your muscles work. We naturally carry a reflex known as ‘tonus’ that prevents our muscles from stretching to the point of injury. We work with your body in a relaxed state – this helps subvert your muscle reflex and by isolating individual muscle groups, we can unlock the most beneficial stretches.
Give your body what it needs with a free 30-minute stretch on us!

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.
