    Founded in 2004, leading expert in practitioner-assisted stretching, Jorden Gold discovered and launched Stretch Zone, Inc., a company that has revolutionized “the stretch” and its ability to have incredible impact on a person’s overall health, injury prevention, recovery and performance enhancement.

    With a dedicated roster of world-recognized names and faces, Stretch Zone has become the resource for improving performance in both athletic and daily activities for notables including musician Lenny Kravitz, actor George Hamilton, pro-athletes from the NFL, NBA, MLB and ATP such as Marshall Faulk, Chris Carter and legendary Hall of Famer Jim Brown as well as hundreds of other celebrities, celebrated athletes and multi-millionaires from around the world.

    “Stretch Zone’s designed program is bridging the gap between health and fitness,” explains Marc Abrams, Stretch Zone, Inc. President. “The practitioner-assisted stretches work with the central nervous system to isolate muscles and produce better physical results through improved flexibility and energy flow. In speaking to the demand for our ability to ‘stretch back the years’ for our clients – we’re sharing our 15 years of research and success with businesses and professionals to enjoy a new revenue stream and longer professional lifespan.“

    The Stretch Zone Program is a complete proprietary system of methods, protocols, continuing education workshops and tools that include the original Stretch Zone Table and patent pending Conversion Kits. With this program, Stretch Zone is educating targeted businesses including baby boomers; health and medical specialists; sports clubs and spas; schools and athletes of all levels.

    The Stretch Zone Workshop, a practitioner certification course of complete stand-alone, state-of-the-art performance enhancement modalities, was created for select massage therapists, athletic trainers, physical therapists, chiropractors, personal trainers and other body work modalities. The workshop provides in-house or on-site training and support for those using Stretch Zone methods, skills and procedures, so that they may proficiently offer the service to their clients. The practitioners each receive extensive training at the Stretch Zone Institute, with supporting documentation, manual, protocols and continuing education credits. This new skill set will not only help increase business, but also prolong a practitioner’s length of work because of its mechanical advantage from repetitive use injury, in the end differentiating themselves from their competition.

    Each workshop instills the Stretch Zone Method, formulated as a series of Stretch Cells designed to target different parts of the body and areas of concern. These controlled stretching techniques are conveniently broken down into 5 - 10 minute sequences that work with the autonomic nervous system and efficiently improve muscle symmetry, improve flexibility, enhance physical performance and alleviate rheumatic pain. With precise stabilization, control and comfort, the Stretch Zone practitioner systematically positions, stabilizes, isolates and carefully assists each rhythmical stretch. Each Stretch Cell can be customized for a client’s specific needs or performance objective.

    As a way to better these methods, the Stretch Zone Table was invented, followed-by the patent-pending Stretch Zone Conversion Kit. Designed by Jorden Gold, the kit was built to conveniently convert any standard massage table (stationary or portable) into a practitioner-assisted stretching table. The kit slips snuggly onto the under frame of a massage table with no need of extra hardware. It can be safely and easily added to or removed from any standard massage table in under one minute. The adjustable belts, pads and straps allow for the speedy extension of muscles further than the central nervous system would normally permit.
