Why Partner Assisted Stretching?
STRETCHMED™ Stretch Therapists use a combination of PNF (Proprioceptive Neuromuscular Facilitation) and static stretching techniques to improve flexibility, maximize blood flow, reduce stress, and much more! We work with clients in 25 and 50 minute 1-on-1 assisted stretch sessions anywhere from 1 to 4 times a week, depending on the needs and goals of our clients. We will make the recommendation that is right for you!
Who Do We Help?
Everyone has imbalances, or deals with chronic pain, or muscle tightness, and tension. We even work on people who feel great and want to just improve their flexibility.
Some of our most notable clients are:
Improving flexibility in the legs, lower back, and hip joints is important in the prevention of falling in older adults. Stretching benefits also include maintenance of strength, improved overall flexibility, improved posture, and increased circulation and blood flow, to provide a greater quality of life and healthy aging.
Your STRETCHMED™ Stretch Therapist knows the appropriate stretches and techniques to help alleviate knee pain, low back pain, hip pain, sciatica, shin splints, shoulder pain, and more!
Flexibility is a key component of agility and balance, which is important in all sports and athletic events. It is also vital in maximizing strength and power through a full range of motion. That means you can run faster, jump higher, reach further, swing and throw harder with increased flexibility.
Flexibility is vital for a great golf swing! If you want to improve your swing from back-swing to follow through, the STRETCHMED™ 1-on-1 assisted stretch program is for you!

The human body was designed to move! We were not designed to sit at a desk or in a car for long hours and extended periods of time without moving. This can lead to imbalances and chronic back and hip pain. Your STRETCHMED™ Stretch Therapist knows exactly how to help alleviate the tension in the affected joints to get you standing straight, tall, and pain free!

We are not the only ones to do 1-on-1 assisted stretching. We just do it the best!
With a STRETCHMED™ Stretch Therapist as your partner you are able to have appropriate and constant resistance while maintaining optimal control of your breathing, core, arms, and legs. Your STRETCHMED™ Stretch Therapist understands exactly which joints to stabilize and where they need to apply steady tension, allowing you to relax while being moved in a variety of positions. Unlike Pilates and Yoga, which have a workout component, the STRETCHMED™ 1-on-1 assisted stretch program, allows you to kick your shoes off (literally!), take a break, relax, and rejuvenate!
