Welcome to Stretch Zone
Tension gained over time from everyday life can have a large impact on your range of motion. You might not be able to move as efficiently as you could before. This is due to the restriction of the body’s stretch reflex. The great news is that we can change that with our proven Stretch Zone Method.
Once you walk into your local South Miami Stretch Zone, one of our skilled stretch practitioners will strap you into our patented and comfortable equipment. From there, your job is done. We will re-educate your muscles to extend their stretch reflex, meaning you can get your maximum mobility back.

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.
