Services are provided fully clothed. Wear something comfortable and ideally form fitting so that the manual stretch and strokes will not pull your skin.
It depends on what type of first appointment you have made. However, during any first appointment, we will spend a few minutes getting to know your concerns and goals for our program. In addition, you should talk to your Stretcher about focus and /or problem areas.
If you would like us to focus on certain areas, talk to your stretcher.
Yes, you can book your appointments online. Your first appointment should be for one of the Stretch Discovery Visits either the StretchTeez or the Stretch Analysis. Once you and your stretcher determine the stretch program right for you, you can book future appointments on line as well.
The length of appointments vary depending on the service (typically 60 minutes), which includes 10 minutes of transition time allowing the Stretcher to transition between appointments.

Rezilient stretchers all have 100 hours of the Rezilient training program. Our stretchers have varying backgrounds all requiring a thorough understanding of anatomy and physiology. Rezilient stretchers all carry certification, licensures, or degrees in either athletic training, physical therapy assistant, massage therapy, personal training, or exercise physiology.
Physical therapy is specifically treating and targeting a condition. Stretching is often incorporated in a patient’s PT rehabilitation however it is only one of many modalities used. Stretching in physical therapy will often target specific muscles that were found to have restrictions. Rezilient stretch, unlike PT, will target head to toe myofascial restrictions. Rezilient is a great option once you have been discharged from PT and looking to maintain your current function or specifically progress your mobility. Rezilient’s attention to the entire fascial train may be the missing link to your therapy goals.
A massage is a great way to target in on tight, tense muscles and can be very relaxing. Our Rezilient stretch, however, combines the soft tissue mobilization techniques similar to massage with fascial elongation through full body stretches. Our stretches, unlike massage, will result in increased motion of your joints and improved performance for sport or for life! Rezilient stretch also allows you to remain fully clothed.
Rezilient stretches were developed by two physical therapists with doctorate degrees and years of advanced training. Together they have 30 years of experience that guided them in the development of Rezilient’s proprietary stretches. Rezilient stretches are evidence-based as they combine the current best literature, the clinical expertise of two Doctorates of PT, and years of treating patients and analyzing their values and preferences. The Rezilient stretches have various levels of intensity, in order to address individual needs.
Increased Posture and Posture Awareness
Poor posture over time leads to injuries due to poor alignment of your bones and soft tissues. The abnormal biomechanics cause muscle imbalance and potential impingements. You need to stretch in order to maintain correct alignment, which will ultimately prevent injury and keep you upright and moving with full strides.
Stretching improves your blood flow and circulation which is key to healthy joints and muscles. Increased circulation will also help reduce swelling and edema.
Prevention of Mobility Loss
Collagen, a main constituent of connective tissue, becomes dense and stiffer with aging. Flexibility has been shown to decrease up to 50% in some joint areas with chronological age. However, studies suggest that this loss of motion can be minimized with regular stretching and range of motion exercises.
Athletes looking for that cutting edge will benefit from our Rezilient Intense Stretch, which utilizes a PNF technique shown in the literature to increase performance.
Studies have shown an increase in both stride rate and stride length with routine Stretching.
Rezilient Stretch increases blood flow to your joints and muscles. It opens the fascia and helps pump blood so it can flow more freely through. This helps alleviate pain and helps expedite the healing process.
Our Rezilient Stretch is very relaxing and mentally and physically therapeutic. There is no pain with our stretches. Our techniques help improve hydration, improve circulation, elimination of waste, reduce stress, and improve sleep.
