FST-Fascial Stretch Therapy
Fascial Stretch Therapy(FST)
FST is pain free stretching! it improves mobility of your nerves & flexibility of your muscles and fascia.
What is Fascia?
Fascia is the connective tissue system of the body that penetrates through and wraps around muscles, nerves, organs and just about everything else in your body.
Why Stretch fascia not muscle?
Fascia surrounds each muscle, connects them to each other and penetrates deep inside of them. It also connects muscles to tendons, ligaments and bone to form a body wide, smart functional network. Fascia connects to all your organs and systems too.
Fascial Stretch Therapy takes place on a massage table, with the client dressed in comfortable exercise clothes. Using stabilizing straps to isolate one side at a time and provide support. The use of traction, the practitioner’s’ body weight as leverage, and modified PNF (client-assisted stretching) to increase range of motion and flexibility by the end of a full body session. It releases tension and breaks up the adhesion’s in the fascia, freeing up movement in the ligaments, tendons and muscles.
