By working with the autonomic nervous system, Stretch Zone practitioners take muscle extension to a whole new level. The practitioners systematically position, stabilize, and isolate the parts of the body that are not being stretched. This allows the stretched muscle—and the person being stretched—to completely relax, extending further than the central nervous system would normally permit. This method can reduce stress, stiffness, and soreness while improving circulation and range of motion. Besides helping rejuvenate and invigorate the whole body, the sessions can also alleviate rheumatic pain for everyone from seniors to adults.
