Fascial Stretch Therapy™ (FST™) is a unique system of therapy that dramatically improves flexibility by lengthening fascia. Fascia is the connective tissue that surrounds all structures of the body. It thickens and shortens when the body is under stress from poor posture, lack of exercise, injury, surgery, disease, or over-training. FST™ treats inflexible fascia at the deepest possible level to restore range of motion and balance. FST™ will help improve athletic performance, increase joint mobility, reduce tension and pain, and decrease overall stress. This form of assisted stretching can help you achieve goals that are otherwise unattainable through conventional stretching methods.
“Your fascia reacts to all stress: physical, mental, and emotional. Since fascia covers everything from all of your organs, to the circulatory system, to the brain and nervous system, to the skeletal system and more, your whole body is at risk to react to stress by tightening and stiffening. When your fascia is left unattended to, aging of the body, mind, and spirit accelerates, function decreases, and quality of life deteriorates.”
