FASCIAL STRETCH THERAPY

Set It Free with FST

What is different about FST?

FST is pain-free! Fascial Stretch Therapy improves the mobility of your nerves and the flexibility of your muscles & fascia. FST is completely different yet perfectly compatible with other methods of therapy & training such as massage, physiotherapy or strength & conditioning. 

What is Fascia (fas`ci`a)?

Fascia is one of many types of connective tissue in the body. Fascia surrounds each muscle, connects them to each other & penetrates deep inside them. It also connects muscles to tendons, ligaments & bone to form a body wide, smart functional network. Fascia connects to all of your organs & systems too.

Why Stretch Fascia vs. Muscle?

Fascial stretch therapy can help you achieve elastic, permanent gains in range of motion but the intent of FST is not to just render body therapy, it is to re-educate your brain by tuning your nervous system to current needs of your environment coupled with movement pattern re-conditioning. 

Who can benefit from FST?

People of all ages and sizes, office workers, fitness enthusiasts, athletes of all levels including professionals! An FST LVL1 therapist touch is important to facilitate nervous system response ranging from both ends of the spectrum such as:

Cradling your body like rocking a baby to call upon the rest & digest system and tune down your overly active nervous system often seen in today’s stressful society

Dancing joints to mobilize and stabilize athletes by ramping up the sympathetic fight or flight system for them hit the ground running with feather feet on the field

In the “right hands” Fascial Stretch Therapy is a great treatment approach and it might be the midas touch you need to invoke healing properties in your body and elicit “aaahs” happy sounds. 🙂

FST can provide an initial general access to the parasympathetic nervous system to elicit a rest and digest response to decrease tone and tension in targeted neuromyofascial tissues often reducing chronic pain and allowing uninterrupted normal sleep, perfect for an office environment occupation where you are typically sitting all day and become stiff. Or to provide access to the sympathetic nervous system to prime the fight or flight response and make an athlete strong, alert and confident with all systems ready to fire, necessary to ensure performance and that the athlete hits the ground running. (Any patient should be cleared by their physician for stretching & active movement)

FST HAS RAPID RESULTS IN HELPING TO BREAK THE RESISTANT CYCLE OF SOME CHRONIC PAIN CONDITIONS AND OPENS THE DOOR TO HEALING.
