Hong Kong's Premier Stretching Studio
A word from the Founder
Welcome to the Stretch Asia website.
If you're on this page, you must be interested in knowing a bit more about us before trusting us with your body.
Let me share my story and how Stretch Asia came about.
I co-founded Stretch Asia in 1999, 3 years after arriving in Hong Kong from my native France.
What started as a massage therapy clinic quickly evolved into the first stretch studio in Hong Kong and Asia, after an encounter with Aaron Mattes, the founder of the Assisted Isolated Stretching technique.
Back then, not much emphasis was put on flexibility in the fitness realm. Hong Kong was home to a few boutique yoga studios, which focused primarily on the mind-body connection. Not so much on the benefits of stretching.
Clients at Stretch Asia enjoyed the freedom of movement they experienced after their session when stretching and massage were combined.
The results were immediate and sustained much longer than with massage alone. We also applied Active Isolated Stretching to improve our clients' posture, relieving some of the most acute pains they felt from postural imbalances.
A decade later, when my partner wanted out, the team and I continued the excellent work we had been doing, helping people stay mobile, flexible, and above all pain-free.
We have weathered many storms, since 1999, Covid-19 being one of them, and we are happy and proud to continue to offer the highest quality of service we have learned to value.
Today, what drives me is the vision of the "kick-ass 100-year-old" that I want to be and all the "kick-ass 100-year-olds" that I want to serve. I borrowed this expression from Dr Peter Attia, whose work towards Longevity fully resonates with me.
I turned 60 this year, so this vision is real!
With proper sleep, nutrition, an exercise regime that includes strength and cardio training and a flexibility program designed to preserve mobility, we can all live to 100 in health and vitality.
If you're like me and want to live to a ripe old age, in good health and fully mobile, work with us. If you do not currently have such an essential and simple fitness program, then let us be your guide. You will become the happiest version of your healthy self. We'll start with what we know best: increase your flexibility.
Let us transform how your body feels, as we did for so many people before you.
Stretch Asia is here to help!
Your 100-Year-Old Self will thank you for it 🙂
