Welcome to Stretch Zone
No matter what stage of life you might be in, the everyday toll of working 9-to-5, raising a family, and living a full life is a lot for anyone. The average person sits anywhere from six to eight hours a day, and that’s not counting activities like driving to work or leisure activities! Humans were made to be in motion; that is why sitting for like that every single day is so detrimental to your health.
So, how can you prevent these issues from bothering you? By re-educating your muscles with the Stretch Zone Method®. Our sessions at Stretch Zone Pinecrest center around establishing a more ideal resting muscle tone, making it easier to move and alleviating the strain on the muscles in your body that happens when you sit for too long. An inactive lifestyle leads to muscles atrophying, leading to soreness after sitting for so long or over long periods of time.
You should see results immediately from your first assisted stretch in Pinecrest. Rather than create soreness by pulling your limbs to their extremes, the Stretch Zone Method® is focused on working through your nervous system to get lasting results while increasing your range of motion. The longer you use the Stretch Zone Method®, the more long-lasting the result.

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.
