TALLAHASSEE, Fla. (WTXL) — One local business is stretching to accommodate offer help through telehealth.
For over 26 years, Stretching Your Life has provided ongoing wellness through injury education and massage and stretch therapy here in the Big Bend.
Owner and founder Kim Ortloff, along with manager Jen Bendfelt and their therapy dog Scout, are always creating new ways to provide their unique services of active isolated stretching.
With the new health issues of the pandemic and people becoming static while working from home, Kim added a new service feature at Stretching Your Life that you can do through the telephone.
"We've offered our services via Zoom or on video call to help people digest their issues at home, and help them help themselves. So, they're able to email in or call in or text in," Ortloff explained. "Say, 'Hey I'm having an issue at home, is there a way you could help with this?', and what we'll do is duplicate the issue here at the office all on video and send it back to them and say, 'Here's a way you can help yourself at home.'"
Orloff has also created a new way for you and everyone else to get healthier at home for free.
"For the Coronavirus episode, if you will, we've just offered free downloads of our book plus all the videos are for free," Ortloff said. "Our YouTube is at the top of the page, you just click on that and it'll take you to all of our videos, stretching exercises to help rehabilitate pain and it's all for free."
With over 20 free videos, each video concentrates on a specific area of the body.
Stretching Your Life has two locations here in Tallahassee: One on Lafeyette Street and another on Thomasville Road.
