Fascial Stretch Therapy, also called FST for short, is the leader in partner-assisted mobilizations performed by certified therapists that can rapidly eliminate pain, improve mobility, restore impaired function, and enhance both athletic performance and recovery. How does fascial stretch therapy accomplish so much with pain-free stretching? The unique dance-like sequential stretches unlock the fascial layers from deep to superficial allowing circulating blood to replenish muscle, fascia, and nerve tissue. This allows healing to occur in places that may have been deprived of essential nutrients for extended periods of time. Fascial stretch therapy works from your central core, hips, and progresses outwards to your hands and feet. This works in our favor because 50% of our range of motion is often restricted deep in our hips, not our muscles. So by starting at the hip, we can gain back half our mobility before even touching the limbs.
The following are benefits of Fascial Stretch Therapy which are all commonly accomplished within 1-3 sessions:
Rapid, effective pain relief
Rapid strength and mobility improvement
Major functional ability change
Sleep quality improvement
Relief of many joint impingement syndromes
Improved flexibility and speed in athletes
