Stretch*d, an “assisted stretching and recovery space,” has opened its newest location at 1357 Third Avenue, between 77th and 78th Streets.
According to the company’s website (if you’re wondering why you would want to pay someone to help you stretch), “Assisted stretching is the ultimate way to get a deep stretch, safely and effectively. Our expert Stretch*rs take you through a customized stretch experience using dynamic stretch methods to gently build your flexibility and range of motion and all the while, chill you out.”
Stretching sessions range from 25 to 70 minutes, depending on how stretched out you want to get, and range in price from $48 to $135 dollars for single sessions. Stretch*d says benefits of their services include improved performance, accelerated recovery, stress reduction and injury prevention.
