Welcome to Stretch Zone
Your body is constantly going through changes at every stage of life. After the age of 30, it’s estimated that our bodies begin to lose about 1% of their flexibility every year. Without taking action to reverse the natural effects of aging and tension in your body, you can begin to lose the full range of mobility while feeling increased soreness and tightness, especially on your back, legs, neck, and shoulders.
The solution can be found in our Stretch Zone at Southlake. Our professional stretch therapists deploy our proven Stretch Zone Method® to improve your mobility, relieve stiffness, and eliminate soreness. By using our proprietary equipment and a neurological approach to stretching, we are able to re-train your muscles’ ‘tonus’ (nervous tension that prevents deep stretches) to facilitate functional movement.
Our goal isn’t just to increase your flexibility, although that will be part of the process, but rather to make moving easier and empower your body. The process is simple, painless, and requires no effort. Stretching is excellent for any body type and lifestyle because it improves posture, circulation, and agility.
A stronger, nimbler, more comfortable you. Start with a free 30-minute stretch.

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.
