Fascial Stretch Therapy

Fascial Stretch Therapy (FST) is a unique form of assisted stretching. Stretching is performed on a massage table & is, thus facilitating complete relaxation of the person being stretched and enhancing the effectiveness of the actions of the therapist. It is safe for all ages and flexibility levels.

Fascia is a flexible connective tissue structure that attaches under your skin and covers your entire body, much like a spider web holding everything together. When fascia is tight, your movement and physical potential is restricted resulting in reduced performance. Flexibility does not exist as a general physical characteristic, but it is joint specific. Increasing flexibility from stretch therapy will increase mobility of the body, improving performance and activity capabilities.

FST has a proven track record of 20 years of enhancing elite and professional athletic performance while decreasing your chance of injury and also improving recovery.

Fascia and soft tissue release techniques

Fascia and soft tissue release are therapeutic techniques used to address issues within the fascia and other soft tissues of the body. Here's an overview of both concepts:
  • Soft Tissue Release

    Soft tissue release is a manual therapy technique to address issues within the muscles, tendons, ligaments, and fascia.

    During a Soft tissue release session, the therapist applies pressure and manipulation to specific soft tissue areas to release tension, break up adhesions, and restore normal tissue function.

    Soft tissue release may involve stretching, deep tissue massage, and various manual techniques tailored to the individual’s needs.

  • Fascial Release

    Fascial release is a subset of soft tissue release that specifically targets the fascia.

    Therapists use techniques such as myofascial release, which involves sustained pressure and stretching of the fascia to release restrictions and improve fascial mobility.

    The goal of fascial release is to enhance the elasticity and pliability of the fascia, restoring normal movement patterns and reducing pain.

    Both soft tissue & fascial release address a wide range of musculoskeletal issues, including chronic pain, sports injuries, postural imbalances, and mobility limitations. These techniques are part of a comprehensive treatment plan aimed at improving your overall function & capabilities.
