Whatever your situation, if you’re one of the millions of people who suffer from back, shoulder, and neck pain then finding lasting relief is vital to your ongoing quality of life.
Fortunately, there are ways to do this that don’t require surgery and that don’t require the use of dangerous painkillers. Stretches, both therapy-assisted and home-based, can help you manage your pain. In some cases, the right Stretch & Recovery therapy can help you end your pain for good.

WHY ITS IMPORTANT TO WORK WITH A PROFESSIONAL STRETCH THERAPIST
While doing some of these stretches at home is simple enough, they won’t help without proper technique. If you haven’t already been taught proper technique then our stretch therapists can help you learn it.
In addition, there are many other stretches and therapies that you won’t be able to complete without assistance from a trained stretch therapist. You’ll need them to release all of your neck, back, and muscle tension, to build stability, to get rid of the pain for good, and to keep the pain from returning.
Our five-in-one treatment targets the root causes of your back, neck, and shoulder pain and helps you attack it from multiple angles. So don’t limit yourself to what you can do yourself, at home. Come and see the difference that proper, guided stretching can make to your mobility, well-being, and quality of life.
