Most stretching methodologies try to wait out, overpower, trick, or ignore the stretch reflex. The proven way to increase performance and mobility is to work with the stretch reflex with the revolutionary techniques available through the Stretch Zone® Methodology (SZM). The SZM Practitioner identifies any postural and movement limitations, then tries to correct or mitigate them through specific applied stretching sessions. With a balanced system the customer will reach their true maximum potential, whether they are an professional athlete, weekend warrior, couch potato, or suffering from chronic pain or illness.
A career with Stretch Zone® means not just meeting and maintaining a level of excellence, but continually improving in skill, to further one’s expertise and to advance the industry. As a minimum prerequisite to SZM we recommend a personal training certification in ACE, NASM, ACSM, NSCA or NCSF and/or a license in therapeutic massage or other accredited body work.
Stretch Zone® provides extensive FREE* training for our practitioners either via on-site sessions or at the Stretch Zone® Institute located in Fort Lauderdale, Florida.
During the sessions students are provided instruction and philosophy, with the majority of the program dedicated to hands on training with students learning The Stretch Zone® Method.
Body Work professionals can submit the SZ Certification to their governing body and potentially receive applicable CE Credits. Massage therapists can receive up to 24 credits.
*Certification is only offered to licensees and franchisees and their employees and agents
