StretchLab is a unique wellness concept, offering customized assisted-stretch sessions.
No two bodies are the same and no two stretches at StretchLab are the same. One-on-one stretching is about identifying tightness and imbalances in your body and customizing a stretch routine that is just for you. Our clients may come in with pain, tightness or specific focus areas, but they keep coming back and commit to their flexibility journey once they experience the freedom that comes with having a wider range of motion and flexibility.
FLEXOLOGIST TRAINING PROGRAM (FTP)
Our proprietary Flexologist Training Program is an intensive and thorough program that each of our Flexologists must complete prior to joining StretchLab. This is the first Nationally Accredited program from ICE - the Institute for Credentialing Excellence. During their required 60-70+ hours of theory and hands-on training, our Flexologists learn the muscular system, a variety of assisted stretches and how to work with a variety of clients of all ages and body types.
Proprioceptive Neuromuscular Facilitation (whew!) is the method we use in our one-on-one stretches and certain stretches in our group sessions. Basically, your flexologist will put you in position and ask you to contract certain muscles and hold the contraction for a few moments. This advanced form of stretching is very beneficial in increasing range of motion and getting maximum benefits.
DYNAMIC & STATIC STRETCHING
Static stretching is holding a stretch for a set amount of time. Dynamic stretching includes some sort of movement associated with the stretch. We use a combination of these methods during every group and one-on-one stretch.
