Relieve Chronic Pain. Gain Freedom to Move.
What is Fascial Stretch Therapy?
Fascial Stretch Therapy(™) (FST) is a proven system of pain-free, table based assisted stretching that helps you rapidly gain new ranges of motion, reduce chronic pain, manage stress and move freely. This enables you to return to the activities you enjoy like golfing, tennis, and downhill skiing.
During each session your FST provider will evaluate where lines of movement restriction are and stretch you in ways that you are unable to on your own. After your first FST session you will feel lighter, more relaxed and rebalanced. Your body will feel more open and less compressed. This feeling lasts several days. It takes 3-6 sessions to see longer lasting effects.
Everyone – from those with chronic diseases to elite athletes – can benefit from FST.
Fascial Stretch Therapy Helps You Move Freely
What is Fascia?
Fascia is your connective tissue, which is the most influential structure in your body affecting your flexibility. Fascia covers your joints, ligaments, tendons, muscles and bones. Age, trauma, injuries, poor posture and inadequate training can distort, twist and tighten the fascia. This can cause pain and discomfort in joints, muscles, tendons, ligaments and discs.
Changes to the fascia can cause major and minor imbalances in strength, speed, flexibility, balance and agility to name a few, but usually the cause goes undetected because most professionals do not stretch and align the fascia. A Fascial Stretch Therapist does just this.
FST complements other treatments like chiropractic, personal training, physiotherapy, kinesiology and active rehabilitation.
