How early should I arrive?

Due to Covid, appointments are scheduled to reduce the number of participants in the studio at any given time. Please arrive just prior to your appointments.

How are our stretchers trained?

  • All Stretchers are trained in our Stretched Method. Our Method combines the practical application of the stretch reflex, reciprocal inhibition, neuro-muscular behaviors, and Anatomy Trains(R) with table based assisted stretching. 

  • Our therapists come from various backgrounds including licensed massage therapy, kinesiology, and other bodywork backgrounds. 

  • Therapists have to undergo extensive hands on learning, as well as a full curriculum and testing before becoming a Stretcher.

What is the difference between Stretching and Massage?

  • Stretching is performed with clothes on, reducing the anxious feelings sometimes felt with massage.

  • Stretching can activate deep postural muscles without the use of digging into sensitive areas sometimes felt during massage.

  • The benefits of stretching are seen immediately with increased movement in the body. As an example, the ability to bend over and tie shoes without strain.
