Get that stretch on
Muscle tightness, pain, lack of mobility, bad posture, stress. We all seem to suffer from one, or a multitude of these ailments. But what can combat them? Stretch Smart, which opened at 3965 Telegraph Road in Bloomfield Township by Hungry Howie’s, believes it has the answer, with a combination of manual stretching and infrared therapy. All therapists on staff are trained by a certified physical therapist, Angela, a therapist, said. “We stretch people and combine it with infrared therapy and a heated sauna. It penetrates deeper. We do an anti-aging 30-minute session of heat, and then do a 30-minute session on the table.” Health benefits of stretching, according to Stretch Smart, which also has a location in Birmingham’s Rail District, 2123 Cole Street, are increased circulation, greater flexibility, better balance, lower stress levels, reduced injury risks, reduced pain, more energy, increased mobility, improved posture and increased exercise performance.
