what is stretch therapy?

Welcome to Head2Toe Bodystretch and Massage LLC.

Karen West is one of the few certified stretch therapy specialists in WNY.

With years of LMT experience and practice, Karen's focus has centered on stretch therapy. 

We Focus on Two main types of stretch therapy.

Assisted Stretch Therapy: This is a passive stretch where the therapist stretches your body for you while you use your breath to deepen the stretch. This is done on either massage table or mat.

Guided Stretch Therapy: This is an active stretching method where you work with the therapist on a mat. While guided through a stretch routine either in group settings or one-on-one, to optimize your personal goals while learning stretches, you can continue on your own at home or the gym.  Have an event or need a therapist to work with your company for stretch classes please call for more info.

“Simply the best! Make an appointment, you won't regret it!"

-Lisa O

"Assisted Stretching feels amazing! It takes what a good stretch will do to another level and helps stretch areas that are hard to get on your own. Karen does a great job at assessing your flexibility and working within your body's abilities.  Everyone can benefit from stretching. I highly recommend"
