Discover The Healing Power of
The Stretch Method

We know that you are not getting the long-term proven relief you need from insurance-based PT services, so we are doing treatment differently to forge a new path for you that does not lead you directly to surgery. 

Current service offerings of PT, Chiro, Personal Training, and Assisted Stretching are not enough to fix the problem you have been faced with. We have seen firsthand the damage left behind from treatments that only provided short-term relief from pain and tightness. We were established to break this destructive cycle so that we can help you avoid the typical reactive care treatments that may lead you on a direct path to surgery. 

We believe that our community deserves more than short-term strategies that seek only to provide instant relief. You work hard for our community, and we feel that it is our job to keep you living a life WITHOUT limits. You deserve to understand how the body works and how you can reverse damage left behind from the deconditioning cycle. If you are ready to get off the merry-go-round, that is REactive care. We are here to help…

Our team of SMC coaches and Specialists was developed to bridge this gap that leads our community to reactive care. We are here to provide treatment programs that rebuild the neuromuscular system so you can live your life WITHOUT Limits



founded with
care in 2020

With over 20 years of experience in Physical Therapy, as a PTA, Kim Nartker, owner and founder of The Stretch Mobility Coach™ and the creator of The Stretch Method® in Ohio, recognized that clients were caught up in a cycle of re-injury and reoccurring pain.

This cycle created a lot of frustration, both for the patients and for Kim, as their practitioner. This frustration led Kim to create The Stretch Method®. This comprehensive program would identify and fix the root cause of her patient’s pain and tightness, improve flexibility, and provide regeneration to heal the damage for a full recovery.

Your FAQs, Answered

TSM uses assisted mobility, assisted stretching, and deep muscle re-firing exercises to improve mobility and flexibility. At the same time, a person regains deep muscle strength that has disappeared due to pain or injury. This comprehensive method is combined with a coaching approach to empower and return home to people struggling with pain, tightness, or other movement-related concerns. The foundations and hands-on treatments used in TSM are more comprehensive than any current Rehab Program.  

TSM was created to help all kinds of clients experiencing a variety of aches, pains, and tightness. You will benefit from treatment with a Stretch Mobility Coach if you are in pain; want to avoid medications, injections, or surgery; feeling aches and pains after sports or fitness activities; suffering from poor posture and tight muscles; experiencing limited movement; seated at a computer for extended periods of time or ready to push through a sports performance plateau.

TSM goes beyond the quick fixes of traditional services. Our techniques collaborate with chiropractic care, personal training, massage therapy, and other fitness choices. The Stretch Method is gentler than chiropractic adjustments, more results-driven than physical therapy, and a great starting point for those who don’t want or need physical therapy. 

Most people feel a result in their first session, see an improvement after just three sessions, and see major improvements in pain and tightness between 6 and 10 sessions.  (Minimum 2x/week-long visits combined with our deep thermal laser treatment).

Yes! Our Class IV Deep Thermal Laser regenerates damaged tissue, working at the cellular level to restart the healing process. Typically, 6-12 sessions are required per body part injured. 

We also offer Red Light Therapy Program, which has helped over 400 people improve weight loss by reducing unhealthy visceral fat, improving collagen production to improve skin health, and naturally decreasing fine lines and wrinkles. It also enhances and heals gut problems, regulates hormones, and improves sleep, energy, and pain.
