FAQ

Most frequent questions and answers
We ask that you arrive about 10 minutes early so that you have time to change and check in for your appointment. Prior to your first stretch, your Certified Stretch Practitioner (CSP) will go through your intake with you. We want to be sure you have no injuries, and talk through any areas of concern you may have. We also like to perform some “before” motions so we can compare the “after” motion when you are finished! We usually make specific recommendations for stretches to perform on your own in between our sessions to keep the progress going!
Our programs were designed for everyone – the young and the old, the active and the immobile, the weekend warrior and the uber stressed. Whether you want to improve your mobility or athletic performance, decrease pain or boost your mental state, The Vital Stretch® will help you reach your goals and get back on the path to good health.
If you have an injury we advise you to seek the advice of a health care professional for clearance for assisted stretching. You may see your own practitioner or feel free to arrange for a free education screening with a Physical Therapist or Chiropractic Physician at our affiliate Advanced Health Professionals, P.C.
Absolutely, unless your doctor advises against it. We may need to modify stretching positions.

Worried your stretcher will push you too far? Don’t. We tailor each session to meet your individual goals and your body’s specific needs. Important to note is that all of our Certified Stretch-Specialists are all also Licensed Massage Therapists and/or hold the highest level of personal training certifications through NASM, ISSA, ACE, ACSM so you can have confidence who is putting motion and stretch into your body.
 
You’ll be positioned on our specially designed table and a soft belting system to get you in the perfect spot.
 
As your body progresses (i.e. becomes looser) so, too, will each stretch. Your bespoke program will take into account your age, phase of life and level of conditioning. We will never force your body into a stretch it is not ready to do.

Loose fitting clothes are the best choice to ensure your comfort (and ease of stretch) throughout the process.
