I’m Sarah Mariano aka @theStretchTherapist.
Like many, I suffered from various injuries for many years. So much so that I couldn't even walk slowly without feeling immense pain in my shoulders.
I was inspired to create a system that incorporated some of the key elements from a variety of philosophies that I have found effective for not only myself, but for my clients as well. Infused with my own proprietary stretches, I’m positive that The Performance Stretch System will add value to your already spectacular skillset. Sign up today!
"I use the PSS techniques on all my clients and they can't get enough. Learning her stretch system, along with tools on how to market it as a business has 2x my income!"
My mission is to educate as many people as possible on how to utilize their body + mind to its fullest potential - I believe that's where magic happens.
I've had the privilege of working with some inspirational clients including Will Smith, Grant Hill, Serge Ibaka, Grammy-award winning artists, NBA, NFL players & many others. For me, working with these individuals has been a dream come true.
This does not include the 5 hours of case studies, and 60 practice hours you will need to complete after learning the PSS.
