Utilizing our patented equipment, our Stretch Zone practitioners follow specific methods and protocols to properly position, stabilize, isolate, and manipulate muscles using powerful principles of neuromuscular behavior.
Be more than flexible, be stretch reflexible
While traditional stretching methods attempt to make you more “flexible,” we work to adjust the stretch reflex. This way, the Stretch Zone Method® gradually increases your active range of motion.
Consider how a car seatbelt works. If pulled too quickly, the belt locks. If the belt is forced, you are just stretching the material itself, and that’s where injury happens. When a car seatbelt is pulled smoothly and controlled, the belt will fully extend. It’s the same with your body’s stretch reflex.
Thanks to the modern sedentary lifestyle, starting in your 30s, most people start losing flexibility at an average rate of 1% a year. Strains and micro-stresses on your muscles compounded over time can glue them together. This “glue,” or scar tissue, tightens the surrounding tissue and restrains how you’re able to move. Over time, the snowballing loss of flexibility ages you.
Stretch Zone’s isolation of individual muscles within a muscle group breaks up the glue, unwrapping the strangle hold on your posture and valuable energy. Proper stretching slows down the aging process. You can even feel younger by improving posture, circulation, and pain-free full range of motion.
Relieve Stiffness & Soreness
Due to sedentary lifestyles and overworked, stressed muscles, people develop resting muscle residual tension, or “tonus.” When you flex a muscle, you create excessive tonus in the muscle.
A certain amount of resting muscle tonus is necessary to keep form and posture. But when you have excessive resting tonus, it becomes harder to move.
Many people walk around with stiff muscles every hour of the day, and it’s not from the gym. Working with an experienced practitioner at one of our Stretch Zone locations, you can reestablish a more ideal resting muscle tone, relieving stiffness and soreness.
Enhance Athletic Performance
Discover and Enhance Physical Abilities. Assisted stretching shouldn’t only be applied as a warmup or cool down exercise. You can unlock greater physical ability as an athlete when you reach optimum functional flexibility.
Greater Reaction Time. A flexible system is an open system, awakening natural and instinctual movements that require less thought and faster reaction time. You can develop an enhanced sensory awareness of your surroundings.
Spatial Awareness. Athletes who are introduced to practitioner-assisted stretching learn their bodies limitations. That allows you to better assess the state of your muscles and injuries. Spatial awareness also provides a sense of control and confidence, ultimately determining peak performance.
When flexibility training is done properly, and the integrity of connective tissue and muscle is maintained, you can increase your active range of motion. You’ll be able to execute movement without excessive tension and decrease resistance in extended muscles. This way, the Stretch Zone Method® serves as a safeguard against injury.
Increase & Maintain Range of Motion
Stretch Zone is not in the business of making people more flexible. Well, not by the traditional definition of flexibility. We’re in the business of reeducating the nerve-muscle reflex, allowing you to move easier.
Our goal isn’t making you more “flexible” or “elastic,” but to increase your active range of motion so that you can move further before you even feel a stretch. Stretch Zone works through the nervous system to achieve lasting flexibility gains.
Enhance Physical & Athletic Skills
Stretch Zone has enjoyed helping many pro-athletes reach their athletic best – in the NFL, NBA, MLB, & ATP. This includes sports celebrities from the U.S. Open Champion, the NFL’s Most Valuable Player, and even the IBF Light Heavyweight Champion of the world.
