Fascial Stretch Therapy

What is Fascial Stretch Therapy?

FST is a gentle, pain-free assisted stretching technique performed by a Certified Fascial Stretch Therapist to assess and remove restrictions to movement within joints, muscles, fascia and the nervous system. This is an effective technique to improve mobility and pain management using oscillation, circumduction and fascial traction to target the different layers of the fascial systems of the body to facilitate complete relaxation and down regulation of the nervous system.

What are the benefits of Fascial Stretch Therapy?

  • Significantly reduce pain levels
  • Create optimal joint mobility and range of motion
  • Improve posture and joint positioning 
  • Decrease adhesions in joint capsule and other connective tissues
  • Improve sleep, digestion and energy levels
  • Increase good endorphins into bloodstream
  • Reduce muscle tension and risk of injury
  • Improve sport-specific performance
  • Decrease mental stress 
  • Increase level of relaxation of all fascial components from joint capsule, ligaments, tendons, muscle throughout the body 

Who should consider Fascial Stretch Therapy (FST):

  • Those with chronic pain
  • Those who train regularly 
  • Those who are going through injury rehabilitation 
  • Those who wants to prevent injuries

What is Fascia and why is it important to my performance and long term health?

Have you ever had that feeling of being really tight, no matter how much you stretch or roll, it just won’t release? That’s your fascia speaking to you. Fascia is a network of layered connective tissue that seamlessly surrounds muscles, bones, joints and organs. The fascial system discovered shows how muscles are strung together to form a supporting tensile network for the human skeleton. FST can restore and optimize a person’s level of mobility, which dictates their ability to effectively and safely perform your day to day activities.
