Welcome to Stretch Zone

Tuscaloosa

Regain comfort in your own body.

Tight schedules and lack of knowledge keep many people from giving their bodies the stretches they need. We use our bodies constantly, often putting them through the ringer. If we put cars through the same use we put ourselves through, they wouldn’t make it far without some maintenance. Think of stretching like an oil change for your body, do it regularly and you can keep yourself moving smoothly. Don’t do it enough of it and wear and tear start to grind things down to a halt.  

At Stretch Zone, our stretch practitioners in Tuscaloosa are dedicated to keeping your body in optimal condition. Our proprietary Stretch Zone Method® and equipment are designed to approach stretching from a neurological angle. Rather than pushing your body further than it wants to move, we help train your muscles and joints to loosen and establish a more ideal resting tone.  

Your muscles carry nervous energy, known as the stretch reflex, that is meant to protect you from overstretching. By taking the effort out of your hands and doing all the work, we can help you attain deeper stretches that unlock the most beneficial results.   

You owe it to yourself to feel better. Claim your free stretch today!

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.
