Elongate Your Life
Stretch Base® is comprised of individuals that come from all different backgrounds – strength and conditioning coaches, personal trainers, athletic trainers, aspiring occupational and physical therapists, as well as yoga instructors.
We are a collective group of individuals that prides itself on two values: educating customers so they feel empowered to make decisions, and creating an environment where people feel restored. While we offer many cutting-edge services that will get people coming through the door, it is the people that drives business and keeps customers coming back. As a stretch technician, you play a vital role in that culture.
At Stretch Base® we are doing more than providing assisted stretching. We are helping customers understand their bodies, giving them an opportunity to unplug from their stressful day, and allowing them to quiet their mind. There is a huge psychological component to stretching that we acknowledge. This goes back to creating an environment where people feel restored – this is the culture of Stretch Base®.
Human beings are survivalists. Compensation patterns occur after injury as the body attempts to continue functioning as safely as possible. Every day, humans sit, walk, lift, squat, etc., regardless of proper movement. Movement is necessary, but it is not always done safely.
The same way we build levees to control the flow of water to an area, so too does the human body restrict movement if there is a threat to safety. The body uses compensation patterns to continue moving even when there is dysfunction. The mind is like the levee, altering the flow of movement to feel safe. Safety equals stability.
Pain occurs when mobile joints become less mobile (stable) resulting in stable joints becoming more unstable (mobile). Stretch Base utilizes assisted stretching as a way to bypass the compensation patterns because clients are not having to create stability while lying on the table—it is both easier and safer to deconstruct a levee when the water level is down.
