Welcome to Stretch Zone

Mandarin

Create mobility for life

The mounting pressures of life and our exposure to physically demanding activities can diminish the functionality of our joints and muscles. You might not feel the effects right away, but over time, soreness and tightness can become more common. If you want to stave the effects of tension and stress, you need to fine-tune the complex mechanism that is your body with regular stretching.   

Many people find stretching intimidating because they don’t know where to start, luckily, Stretch Zone at Mandarin eliminates the barrier-to-entry entirely because we do the stretching for you. Our professional stretch practitioners in Mandarin are equipped with the knowledge and proprietary equipment of our Stretch Zone Method® to bring you undeniable results.  

How does it work? It’s easier than you might thing. We use our proven methods to train your muscles and reduce their natural resistance to stretches. This neurological approach allows us to achieve deeper stretches without any pain, soreness, or efforts on your part. What this means for you is an increase in your range of mobility and muscle function.

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.
