How StretchLab Works

One-On-One Stretch
If you haven’t had an assisted stretch before – prepare yourself for a great time! Your Flexologist will greet you and discuss your current flexibility, any injuries that you may have. and walk you through your session. Stretches are performed on one of our custom designed benches. Your stretch won’t be painful, but your Flexologist will communicate with you throughout your stretch to gauge your comfort level. It’s best to wear clothes you feel comfortable moving in. People wear workout clothes, gym shorts, yoga pants, T-shirts, etc. Jeans and slacks tend to restrict your mobility so we suggest not wearing those types of materials. We require grip socks for your safety and hygeine. If you don't have any we sell a great selection at the studio!
Group Stretch
Group stretches have a maximum of 6 participants to allow for personal attention to each client. You will have your own bench and a Flexologist will guide the group through a series of static (holding), dynamic (stretch with motion) and PNF (push and release) stretches as well as utilizing stretching tools like stretch straps and foam rollers. Don’t worry about your level of flexibility - you don’t have to be able to do the splits to join! Each stretch can be customized to either increase or decrease the level of difficulty to make sure we have something for everyone!

FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS

What do you do at StretchLab?
StretchLab provides one-on-one, customized assisted stretching sessions. The stretches are given on our custom designed benches by Flexologists who will customize your stretch to your needs and talk you through your stretches. Our Flexologists employ a “push & release” type of stretching (technically “proprioceptive neuromuscular facilitation stretching”, or PNF) where you will be resisting a bit at times during the stretch and then releasing, resulting in a more effective stretch.
When should I get stretched?
This varies, but it is really up to you and your Flexologist. Based on your assessment, your Flexologist will work with you and recommend a stretch plan for you.
How often should I get stretched?
Just like any activity, consistency is key. We offer memberships to get stretched once or twice a week. Your Flexologist will talk to you about the best option for your needs.
What sort of backgrounds do your Flexologists have?
Our Flexologists have a variety of backgrounds and are all certified and/or licensed in various bodyworking fields. We have massage therapists, yoga instructors, personal trainers, chiropractors, assistant physical therapists and more! They all complete an extensive training program that teaches them proper stretching techniques and how to work with clients of all body sizes and flexibility levels.
I'm afraid of getting hurt.
Don’t be. You will feel tension during your stretch, but not pain. Your Flexologist will be constantly checking in with you on your comfort level and will adjust the stretch to your comfort. As the stretches are given your Flexologist will ask you where you are on an intensity scale (your own scale) of 1-10. We shoot for about a 7 on most stretches; if it approaches being too intense, just tell the Flexologist that you are closing in on or at your limit. Some people like a more vigorous stretch, others less so; the stretch is in your control.
What if I have an injury?
We prefer to not stretch anyone who is suffering from any sort of acute injury. You should definitely see a doctor or physical therapist and get clearance from them PRIOR to coming to StretchLab. We are NOT physical therapists. If, however, you suffer from chronic pain, discomfort or tightness, getting an assisted stretch is okay—as long as your doctor or physical therapist approves.
Do you have to make an appointment?
We take walk-ins and appointments. We recommend appointments, however, to guarantee a spot and the Flexologist of your choice.
What do I wear?
You can wear whatever you will feel comfortable getting stretched in. People wear workout clothes, gym shorts, yoga gear, loose fitting shorts, T-shirts.
Can I get a private room?
We do not offer services in private rooms. But you can certainly request a bench toward the back if you prefer.
How old do you have to be?
There is no strict age limit. We welcome clients of all ages! However, a parent or guardian will have to sign our waiver for anyone under 18.
