About

Move better, feel better, live better.

Our unique stretching method — The Bendable Body Method — is a specialized form of resistance stretching that works on the fascia along the energetic meridian lines that influence every aspect of your health. 

The Bendable Body Method facilitates healing on multiple levels — biomechanical, physiological, emotional and energetic — enabling you to enjoy a life without pain or stiffness. 

Bendable Body: Focus on the Fascia

It’s time to focus on the fascia

Fascia is the web-like tissue that connects all other tissue in the body — the bones, the ligaments, organs, tendons, skin, fat — everything. In its healthiest form we move freely and without pain and sickness.

Over time, everyone’s fascia becomes matted and stiff. This often happens as a result of injuries, trauma, or simply because of lifestyle choices. Most of us spend more money, attention, and energy maintaining our cars than we do our bodies! We sit too long, stand too long, don’t make enough movements, make too many repetitive movements, etc. Our fascia responds to this neglect and abuse by becoming stiff and unbendable. 

The Bendable Body Method stretches the fascia with resistance and tension, allowing the tissue to regenerate on a cellular level, which ultimately keeps it springy and supple — which means you feel stronger, have more energy, and are more flexible and agile. Because The Bendable Body Method works directly on the fascia, the results are immediate and lasting. 

Bendable Body - Redefining Flexibility

Redefining flexibility

Traditional forms of stretching focus on the end range. This over-stretches and weakens joints, produces micro-tears in muscles, and causes your fascia to mat and stiffen in response to the trauma. 

The Bendable Body Method focuses on the limiting factor — the fascia. We start with a muscle in its shortest position, contract it (or resist) to engage the surrounding fascia, and then lengthen it to get a deep stretch. We also make the opposite movement to immediately access and build new strength in the muscle. 

As you improve the flexibility of your fascia, you free muscles that were perpetually bound. Your body releases tension and relaxes, you develop new levels of strength, your alignment improves, you move easier, and your energy levels soar.

Bendable Body - Deeper Levels of Healing

Deeper levels of healing

Healthy fascia serves as the conductor — the pathway — for electric current in your body, which is essentially your energy. In Traditional Chinese Medicine it’s called Qi. When fascia becomes dry and stiff — or unbendable — energy can’t pass through it. That stagnation in your body’s tissue translates into illness, pain, and lack of movement.

One of the unique aspects of The Bendable Body Method is that the stretches align with the energetic meridian lines in your body. In the same way that acupuncture stimulates the flow of Qi through the body and increases your physiological health, so does stretching the fascia along those meridian lines. For example, when you stretch the anterior lateral thigh, generally referred to as the lateral quadriceps (which the stomach meridian traverses), it can improve the health of your stomach functions and also associated ailments like allergies.

The Bendable Body Method is a total body-mind-energy healing system. 

Stretch better —
the path to a bendable body.

  • Age is not a state of mind… it’s a state of fascia

    The fountain of youth has nothing on Bendable Body! Well, we can’t really reverse the aging process, but when you heal your fascia, you’re coming as close as you can get to aging backwards.
  • Do the stuff you’ve always wanted to do

    Why not now? If those pains in your body or your fears of injury are preventing you from climbing that mountain or swimming that strait, don’t wait another day. Bendable Body will get you out there — doing what you love — and feeling great.
  • Bye-Bye stiffness

    Many people think that becoming stiff as you age is normal. It’s not. Stiffness in your body is a sign that you’re not giving your body the attention it deserves. Stiff is no way to live. Don’t ignore it. Stretch it.
  • Naturally perfect posture

    Most people believe the skeleton determines alignment, but the truth is that fascia is holding your body and skeleton into position. When you stretch with resistance and improve the fascia, your skeleton effortlessly falls into proper alignment. You don’t have to try to stand up straight, it happens naturally.
  • Stronger than Wonderwomn (and Superman!)

    Flexibility and strength go hand in hand. You really can’t have the benefits of strength without having flexibility, and vice versa. By design, The Bendable Body Method naturally builds strength and improves flexibility. It’s a package deal. You stretch with Bendable Body, you get stronger. Now, go get your cape.
  • Find your flow

    The Bendable Body Method is specifically designed to work with your Qi. (In Traditional Chinese Medicine, Qi is the flow of energy along specific meridian lines in your body). As a result, you experience levels of healing that no other stretching or physical training can offer.

“I have experienced Bendable Body and the power of this method with John and Sita. As a result of removing the dense fascia from my body, my sleep has vastly improved as well as my digestion and general overall comfort with moving my body. In fact, right hip limitation and pain that I’ve had for 30 years is now a thing of the past. I am amazed at how effective and fast this work truly is. And I highly recommend it for anyone who wants to live fully and comfortably in their bodies. Bendable Body is indeed ingenious.”
