This manual stretching protocol has been mastered by each of our Certified Stretch U Technicians so you may experience the “perfect stretch” as a result of your visit.
Three distinctly different 20 minute sessions are designed to stand alone or be combined for a fuller and richer experience of relaxation. Depending on your available time, sessions can be as short as 20 minutes or combined to last up to 60 minutes.

Stretch U is a perfect fit for corporate employee wellness programs. Stretch U can teach you and your employees how to balance the repetitive muscle actions your job requires so you are better able to meet the demands of your work and stay well.
No matter the occupation or business, there is always time to stretch throughout the work day. Repetitive movements, sitting for long periods of time, and labor-intensive activities can cause muscle pain, tension, and weakness in the neck, shoulders, arms, wrists, hands, backs, and legs. Adding Stretch U custom programs to your daily routine will drastically reduce injury and help to promote a healthy workplace.
Lock and Stretch
“Lock and Stretch” is a myofascial release technique developed exclusively for Stretch U studios. Lock and Stretch is the Stretch U version of a warm-up where tissues are locked into a place and then gently stretched to produce circulation in muscle, tendons, joints, and most importantly fascial components. All major muscle groups are warmed-up and released in preparation of the manual stretch of all major muscle groups.
The Stretch U 20 minute session is often referred to as the original “Carey” Stretch. During this session a certified stretch technician will take your body through 120 different stretches. The 20 minute session combines passive stretching, contract-relax techniques, and neural flossing glides to all major muscle groups, upper and lower extremities.
Massage therapy aids to increases circulation in the body and release muscle tension. Sessions are available in 20 minute increments to help promote relaxation through different manual techniques. This “clothes-on” style of massage works best with attire that is thin and tight fitting. Sleeveless t-shirts or a tank top with shorts or leggings are examples of clothing items that work best in this context of this style of massage.
