Welcome to Stretch Zone
Is unexplainable back, leg, or shoulder pain becoming more frequent? If so, ask yourself how often you sit. Despite your activity in your off-hours, chances are you are one of the millions of people who sit for an average of eight hours a day or more.
Factor in things like your commute, working a desk job, or your entertainment in the form of movies, books, and video games. Your daily routine is leading to chronic soreness, achiness, and discomfort. Thankfully, our stretch gym in Sandy Springs has the solution to your issues — practitioner-assisted stretching.
Many people trust in the Stretch Zone Method®. From professional athletes to the elderly, everyone can benefit from a greater range of motion, increased immune response, and heightened energy – the hallmarks of stretching.
Stretch Zone in Sandy Springs focuses on targeting your nervous system. The results are long-lasting and safe because we never force your body into uncomfortable positions past its limits. By forcing a stretch too far, you run the risk of muscular damage. You can easily avoid injured muscles and joints by utilizing assisted stretching.
Our method greatly improves your pliability and mobility by re-educating your muscle’s stretch reflex. While useful to help prevent overstretching, the reflex also doesn’t allow you to reach full extension.
Don’t let pain prevent you from being you. Claim your free first stretch at our stretch studio in Sandy Springs.

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.
