Fascial Stretch Therapy: A World-Class Technique

 In Featured Bodywork Techniques

fst-stretch-armFascial Stretch Therapy (FST) is a coordinated flow of movements that stretch not only tight muscles but also the fascia, or connective tissue, that surrounds muscles, bones, and joints. Traction is carefully used to ease restrictions, enhance mobility, and lubricate the joints.

All planes of movement are utilized during a session with careful attention to stay within a safe and pain-free range of movement according to each client’s unique needs. Imbalances are identified and addressed using slow movements to warm-up the body, and then move on to a modified proprioceptive neuromuscular facilitation (PNF) technique combined with breath work.

Overall, a full body stretch is achieved according to a logical, synchronized set of movements that can result in increased range of motion, improved flexibility, and an overall sense of well-being.

Who Can Benefit from FST?

Anyone looking to increase their range of motion, achieve better muscular symmetry and performance (both for sport and life), reduce acute or chronic pain, prevent injury, improve posture and circulation, open up space in compressed or impinged joints, and enhance energy can benefit from regular fascial stretch therapy.
