“I have benefitted enormously from Tyler Kragerud. Beginning with my first appointment, my flexibility, dexterity, and range of motion improved immediately and dramatically. I was astounded after my first session that the dramatic gains brought about by Tyler’s work were permanent! I have continued because in successive sessions my body condition and awareness has continue to gain ground. I am constantly benefitting in ways I never imagined—for example, as a vocalist, improving my singing capacity– thanks to Tyler’s knowledge and skills. Tyler is professional, knowledgeable, personable, and his expertise is beyond any other practitioner in his field. He is authentic and engaged and genuinely interested in the client. He is constantly striving to learn, bring more, and be more effective for his client. He is positive, joyful, and has a great sense of humor. I have enthusiastically recommended Tyler to colleagues and friends, and like me, they realize that he is exceptionally talented and the real deal. When it comes time for me to pay Tyler, I think to myself it is the best money I have ever spent on my health and well-being. ” -Ruth
Josh’s Sports Massage Experience
My recent sabbatical took me to Bend for a month of mountain biking 5-6 days a week. While I was there I took the time to get a 90 minute session with Tyler every week. His deep tissue sports massage and stretching techniques worked out the knots and tightness from a spring of hard training and made a month of hard riding much more enjoyable. Even after the first session I was already feeling better. By the end of the month my legs were feeling the best they have in years. Highly recommended! – Josh
“Excellent therapy for tightness, weak joints and flexibility! Truly a restorative therapeutic addition to your health and wellness routine. Tyler can help restore your mobility, posture, and functionality. Highly recommend.”
Listen to Geri’s Story
After years of chronic muscle and joint pain my longtime massage therapist referred me to Tyler for FST. I was fascinated by this technique and pleased with the results of Tyler’s bodywork. After three FST sessions Tyler mentioned that I would achieve better results if I incorporated strength training into my life. TRANSLATION: Geri, you should be working out! I very reluctantly agreed to give workouts with Tyler a try. With my 60th birthday a year away, we discussed my goals of getting stronger, more fit, and pain-free. We established a nutrition plan to boost my metabolism. Tyler has been super supportive and understanding of what I thought my physical limitations were. In truth, those limitations were mostly mental.
The past year of workouts have been a life changing JOY for me. Tyler’s training is functional! He has improved my mobility, stamina, strength, motivation, and, my golf game! Tyler pushes me beyond my imagination in a gentle, caring manner. The combination of movement, FST, and Tyler is a winning one for me!!!- Geri
More from Clients
“I’m 61 and generally fit and active, but after a nagging shoulder injury kept me from my normal workout routine I decided a personal trainer might be the way to go. I wanted someone to help me work on my overall conditioning and avoid re-injuring my shoulder. After meeting with Tyler and discussing my situation I decided to jump in. It’s been excellent! Tyler uses a great variety of routines hitting all parts of my body. Every session has been upbeat and interesting – and challenging. My shoulder has also improved throughout the sessions. Having never worked with a personal trainer before I wasn’t sure how beneficial it would be, but it’s been more helpful than I expected, and I whole-heartedly recommend Tyler to anyone interested in furthering their physical condition.” – Tom
“FST has been an amazing tool for me! I have just recently started doing yoga about six months now, where I first heard about FST. At first I was unsure if this could help me. Shortly after the first session my mind was made up! I can’t think of a more effective way of learning how my body works. I have had many problems with old injuries and new. Some required surgery, which I would have opted out of knowing what I know now. My first session was very informative to understanding my body, and what the injuries had done to it. I was given great advice, and sent home with homework! While doing the homework, I could feel the change in my mobility. I didn’t wait too long for the second session, during which I gained even more mobility, and even a little strength. I have learned that it is going to take patience and time for my body to heal. Now that I have a few sessions under my belt my pain levels are down, and mobility is up. I would not have the same response that I have been getting without the help. The knowledge and the willingness to share has provided outstanding results! FST worked for me!!” – Cory
“I visited Tyler at the suggestion of my yoga instructor. I was suffering from a limit in range of motion in my right shoulder. Tyler, using his Fascial Stretching techniques provided significant assistance in improving range of motion. However, that was not the only benefit. Tyler suggested state of the art stretching techniques to help, and additions to my regular exercise routine that helped strengthen the joint. Without hesitation I recommend Tyler and his very knowledgeable services. The community is lucky to have this resource for assistance. If you have a problem like me, I highly recommend Tyler and Fascial Stretch Therapy as a first step in solving joint range of motion issues, and joint strength.” – Craig
