Fascial Stretch Therapy

Fascial Stretch Therapy (FST) is an assisted stretch technique performed by a Certified Fascial Stretch Therapist. The main goal when incorporating FST into your regular workout routine is to increase mobility, flexibility and overall fitness. Known to produce astounding results, FST is a must for everyone, regardless of age or fitness level, in order to maintain suppleness and muscle strength throughout your lifetime.

What Can Fascial Stretch Therapy Do For You?

In order for the body to move effectively it must be mobile. Whether your goal is to improve your sports performance, be able to perform exercises at the gym more effectively or to simply improve your mobility and flexibility, FST should be a fundamental part of your fitness routine. Self-fascial release techniques can also be beneficial and speed up results.

How Does it Work?

FST differs from traditional stretching by allowing you to move into and out of the stretch with the help of the stretch therapist.

The therapy is performed on a treatment table and comfortable straps are used to stabilize the limb or part of the body that is not being manipulated, encouraging complete relaxation as well as enhancing the effectiveness of the therapist’s actions.

FST lengthens the tissue from deep inside the joint capsule to the origin of the muscle, including all the connective tissues in between, boosting overall mobility. All fibres and angles are required to achieve a complete stretch. It also incorporates oscillating at various tempos and directions, as your tissue dictates, increasing the flow of endorphins and flexibility as well as reducing pain.
