Job Description


We have worked with countless individuals performing the most innovative techniques of Fascial Stretch Therapy.

Our members range from youth and professional athletes to weekend warriors and active seniors. Stretchwerks is looking for highly motivated people to be a part of our team who are as excited as we are to help individuals move, perform and ultimately live better. We are building a team of professionals dedicated to improving the health, wellness, and athletic performance of our members.

Our education training program requires each movement therapist to complete the Level 1 certification at the Stretch to Win Institute in Chandler, AZ. If you are not currently certified don’t worry, Stretchwerks offers financial assistance for qualified applicants. Once registered you will be paired up with a Stretchwerks team member prior to your level 1 certification date. Here you will begin to learn the very principles and techniques revealed in your level 1 course work. Our goal is to help you apply the information you will learn through the level 1 modules to assist in the knowledge and experience you will have at certification. When you come back we will spend an additional 15-20 hours with you enhancing your knowledge of Level 1 and teaching you other Stretchwerks principles. Each Movement therapist is thoroughly trained, tested, and audited to ensure we are delivering the highest level of service and education to our members.

We offer competitive pay and benefits that reward highly motivated performers. In addition, we always look for ways to reward those who stand out amongst their peers and demonstrate true dedication. This could include spot bonuses, as well as other incentives to reward team members who go above and beyond. We also appreciate loyalty, and we show it with anniversary bonuses, awards, and pay increases. Did we mention that we pay employees for their referrals? So, when you come on board, don’t hesitate to introduce us to other amazingly talented people.
