What is Fascial Stretch Therapy?
Fascial Stretch Therapy (FST) is a blend of bodywork and assisted stretch therapy that can increase flexibility, reduce aches and pains, and improve range of motion. FST releases stored stress in the fascia, the most prevalent tissue in the body.
Each FST session is dynamic, relaxing, effective and based on your body’s unique needs.
BENEFITS OF FST
- increased mobility
- increased range of motion
- decreased joint compression
- improved posture and muscle function
- improved balance and symmetry of the body
- improved circulation
- reduced muscle soreness
- improved performance
- improved muscle function
What to Expect
You are fully clothed on the massage table while the therapist moves the body in undulating spiral diagonal patterns, known as stretch waves, to mobilize the joints.
Using traction to create space in the joints, you are then assisted into deep stretches to correct imbalances and increase blood flow. Using slow and calm movements and modified PNF, your entire body is stretched without pain.
OUR UNIQUE APPROACH
Our licensed Fascial Stretch Therapist will combine FST techniques with her extensive massage therapy experience in Swedish, Deep Tissue, Thai and Shiatsu, to create a dynamic, relaxing and effective bodywork session based on what your body needs.
Although you are fully clothed, each session takes place in our private FST room.
