• Become a Stretch Therapist

    Transform your client's body with stretch therapy that corrects debilitating posture, leading to pain and dysfunction. Be part of the solution.

  • What clients are saying

    "I went to a stretch therapist. I hardly recognized my body afterward. I discovered how inflexible some parts of me are".

  • What is Assisted Stretching

    As its name implies, it is about stretching, but like you're never before. Most of the session is done lying down while the therapist guides the clients into positions and helps them hold.
