Stretch Zone® is a revolutionary movement in the health; wellness and fitness industries focusing on practitioner assisted stretching. This proprietary program of stretching uses a patent pending strapping system, together with specific protocols to work with the muscle tonus (muscle’s nervous tension) in a scientific way to achieve an optimal active range of motion.
This program is increasing in popularity and is licensed to over thirty locations including professional sports teams and world class spas. The benefits of the SZM® include:
• Increase and maintain range of motion
• Enhance physical and athletic skills
• Increase muscle relaxation
• Relieve stiffness and soreness
• Feel lighter & younger
Rather than pulling on our limbs to the point of soreness, Stretch Zone® works through the nervous system to achieve lasting flexibility gains. The method rests on the notion that manipulating our muscle’s nervous energy is a major key to unlocking our body’s functional flexibility. When your body is stabilized correctly, it doesn’t have fear. It can relax and allow the full stretch to occur. Stretch practitioners are taught to position, stabilize, isolate and manipulate muscles in the correct order while working with that nervous tension. The great benefit of practitioner assisted stretching is the ability to control and alter the timing of and even overcome the stretch reflex.
