WHAT IS FASCIAL STRETCH THERAPY?
Fascial Stretch Therapy (FST) is an assisted mobility and stretching technique focused on your connective tissue (fascia) and administered by licensed professionals. Think of it as “yoga on a table” where a therapist moves you through various directions to open up “pockets” or areas of your body that have been lying dormant and lack movement.
WHY IS FST SO IMPORTANT
Your fascia connects every aspect of tissue in your body. It acts as a net that covers your muscles, tendon, ligaments, bones, etc.. There is nothing more important to stretch than your fascia. It used to be thought that manual therapists are working on muscles, but in reality, they are working on making changes to the fascial system. Many patients have had long-term issues with limited mobility and increased pain. FST can unlock your fascia and the affected joints to allow for much greater mobility and drastically reduced or eliminated pain. This allows for a greater quality of life, the ability to be active again, and the ability to perform at higher levels.
WHO IS FST FOR?
FST can benefit everyone, from pro or elite athletes who work out regularly, teenagers in sport, your every day recreational person who strives to improve their life through moving better. As your body adjusts and your needs change, your therapy is progressing with you.
Whether you are an avid golfer looking to perfect your swings radius, a teenage hockey player with pain looking for relief, or just a regular office worker suffering from the effects of sitting at a desk all week, FST could be the solution you've been overlooking.
