It’s been called the 20-minute miracle. It helps to relieve stress, improve flexibility and increase mobility, but you won’t fully understand the benefits of systematic stretching techniques until you try it yourself.
And, we’re going to show you how you can get your first specialized stretch session for free, right here in San Marcos.
Stretching has tremendous benefits for our bodies and yet, how often do you really give yourself a good stretch? (Probably not as often as you’d like.) Stretching improves blood flow and flexibility. It improves muscle coordination and decreases risk of injury. Stretching reduces soreness after exercise and reduces lower back pain. And yet, most of us don’t have the time or the discipline to give ourselves these benefits through proper stretching, which is why Joe Horton and his son, Jake, brought Stretch U to San Marcos.
Joe and Jake opened their first San Diego Stretch U location in Kearny Mesa and now their second location has opened here in San Marcos to bring the benefits of stretching to North County. They are growing quickly and it’s all due to the specialized stretching technique utilized by their practitioners. The Carey Stretch is a patent-pending method created by John Carey, a physical therapist with more than 15 years of success developing strength and conditioning programs for both professional and amateur athletes (golf, baseball, wrestlers, basketball, etc.). The beauty of Stretch U is that now the benefits of his technique are available to not only athletes, but people from all walks of life.
Stretch U is located on the corner of Rancho Santa Fe and Melrose. When walk inside, you will find a simple, clean, open room with several tables where you will be greeted warmly by a Specialist trained in The Carey Stretch System. Your stretch session will be done in a semi-private setting. You are fully clothed and your stretch specialist very masterfully works their way through various muscle groups for your 20-minute treatment. Very different from massage and chiropractic treatments, there is no cracking, pushing, adjusting. It’s more of a gentle, yet strategic stretch, and your stretch specialist caters every move to your individual limitations – while helping you release muscle tension and improve circulation.
During your visit at Stretch U, you’ll likely see students who are being stretched as part of their sports regimen, fitness-conscious people who are looking to prevent injury or to simply stretch out sore muscles, seniors who are looking to improve mobility, golfers, cross-fitters, and even people who suffer from health concerns that prevent them from being able to participate in regular exercise routines.
You will leave your session feeling the benefits immediately – like your blood is flowing better and your stress has been lifted. With regular treatments, you will be amazed as how much your flexibility and mobility improve.
Of course, you won’t realize the benefits for your own body until you get in there and try it out. And, you can get your first session for free simply by downloading their free app here.
Stretch U is located at 1691 Melrose Drive, Suite 180 in San Marcos, 92078 and online at www.stretchu.com/socal.
