Stretch Zone's Method® is unique and effective because it focuses on the nervous system's control of muscle tension via the stretch reflex. This stretch reflex can limit the range of motion and is not always due to a lack of flexibility because of muscle length or elasticity. Stretch Zone's system comfortably stabilizes the body, isolates the stretch area, and allows complete control to the certified stretch practitioner.
Our patented equipment allows us to properly position, stabilize, isolate and manipulate muscles in a scientific way. When your body is correctly stabilized, you feel relaxed and allow for the full stretch. We have the ability to control and alter the timing of and even overcome the stretch reflex. Like a car's seatbelt. If pulled too quickly, the belt locks. If the belt is forced at this point, you are just stretching the material itself and this is where injury occurs. However, if a car seatbelt is pulled smoothly and controlled, the belt will fully extend.
Traditional stretching methods attempt to make you more “flexible” or “elastic”. However, the Stretch Zone Method® works by increasing your active range of motion and the quality of those movements.
