I continue to work with the good people at the Stretch Zone in Birmingham because... I feel better leaving after each session than i did walking in 30 minutes before! DUH! The staff does a fantastic job making the client feel welcome and clearly explaining the entire process. It is as unintimidating an experience as you can find.
Not only do I benefit physically from my stretch but being out of pain has helped me mentally!! Also, my Stretch Tech (Abbey) is just the best! She is caring and compassionate and encourages me to take care of myself! I tell everyone I am in contact with about StretchZone — it is life changing!!!
Stretching has made my body move more easily. All stretchers receive extensive training in how to safely stretch clients and how to communicate where your body should feel each move. Then each stretcher offers an individual and unique style while moving through a series of routine stretches with clients. This provides a deeper stretch than I can give when stretching on my own.
I like that all employees are trained to the same standard and the service I receive is exceptional every visit. Everyone is friendly and are active in helping to regain mobility through the various stretch exercises.
I have always had body work as a part of my routine, but Stretch Zone has added a component that was not there. In massage or myofascial work small stretches are done, but devoting a half hour to great stretches that I cannot do on my own has made very positive changes to my workout routine and my life in general. I highly recommend this to anyone, including people who do not exercise. Stretching my upper body has helped my neck and shoulder tension improve.
