Fascial Stretch Therapy (FST) is distinct from traditional stretching because it decompresses, lengthens, and creates space in the fascia, thereby positively affecting all systems of the body, not just muscles.
Not only does it result in pain reduction and movement restoration in the physical body, FST significantly improves sleep and reduces stress for a total mind and body impact. This is achieved in a session customized to your personal needs for immediate and long-lasting results.
FST isn’t the stretching you did in Grade School. The 1-on-1 fascial stretch approach can produce almost instant results alleviating pain, increasing mobility and range of motion, reducing stress, improving sports performance and much more!
FST decompresses, lengthens, and creates space in the fascia and joint capsule, thereby positively affecting all systems of the body, not just muscles.
By working on all systems of the body, an FST session results in pain reduction and movement restoration in the body, improving your quality of life.
Increasing range of motion and flexibility, reducing muscle and joint pain, improving posture and reducing stress all directly lead to increased sports performance.
FST reduces stress by enhancing circulation and blood flow, helping with mental clarity. Increased flexibility relieves tension in the body, helping you stay relaxed!
Poor posture leads to a variety of issues - back and neck pain, joint pain, etc. FST helps realign joints and can help correct problems created by poor posture.
FST stimulates blood flow to joints and muscles, which supplies the areas with an increased oxygen flow - leading to healthy, happy muscles!
Generally table based, face up and fully clothed, comfortable yet snug / secure straps stabilize the opposing limb from the current focus allowing for deeper, more meaningful and engaging stretch work. Sessions can last anywhere from 15 Min to 90 min depending on focus and need.
You may feel near instant results and/or release, though it can take time and more than one session to peel away layers of tension / tightness from years of progressive stressors and postural issues.
There is never a moment pain is involved or encouraged so constant communication throughout the session should be expected. This type of recovery work is much more engaging and interactive than massage work.
