Welcome to Stretch Zone

Powell

It’s time to feel a difference.

Have you ever noticed that your mobility isn’t quite as good as it used to be? It’s not necessary because you’re doing anything wrong. As we age, more and more tension can begin to build in our bodies, ultimately resulting in a decrease in our range of motion. The good news is that this issue can be corrected through assisted stretching. 

When you come into our Stretch Zone location in Powell, you’ll be placed right into the caring hands of one of our skilled assisted stretch practitioners. From here, your work is done. All you have to do is relax and we handle the rest. 

We use proven methods to stretch your body in ways that will increase your range of motion and get you back to taking full advantage of what your body has to offer. 

Increase your mobility easily and comfortably. Try a stretch to see what it can do for you.

    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.
