Welcome to Stretch Zone
A noticeable difference in your range of motion could mean that you are experiencing the effects of tension. Even if you’re not feeling anything yet, it’s best to get out in front of the potential problem. You can do this with the help of the Stretch Zone Method, which has been trusted by many professional athletes – even entire teams!
Think of your muscles as a seatbelt. If you pull on it too fast, the seatbelt will lock. This is similar to how your stretch reflex works. There’s a point where you won’t be able to stretch anymore and this can be restricted more than it should be due to tension.
Our goal is to re-educate your muscles slowly and smoothly to regain your full mobility potential. You won’t have to do a thing and our sessions are easy and comfortable.
Assisted stretching sessions can bring a huge improvement to your life. You can try a free one by contacting us 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.
