This isn’t the stretching you did in Grade School. The fascial stretch approach can produce almost instant results alleviating pain and increasing mobility / range of motion.
This modality focuses on the fascia (lining of muscle and other tissue) and joint capsule to gently but effectively increase mobility, improve posture, relax tension, and improve circulation with little-to-no pain involved.
Synchronized breathing is key to this slow paced methodical work. The practitioner really strives to take the time to “listen” to what the fascia is telling them and respond appropriately to encourage the body to heal.
With FST the individual's needs are prioritized. Countless clients have reported that in just one session they have a reduction in their pain, and their posture and functional movement have significantly improved. Performed safely and pain-free, there is a personalized assessment, and the session is catered and customized for the individual’s specific needs.
Alleviate chronic pain including back pain, sciatica, pinched nerves, posture issues, uneven hips/legs, poor circulation
Athletes: from professionals to weekend warriors to occasional trailblazers and or just everyday gym goers
Complementing physical therapy, massage and injury rehab and or chiropractic for added results
What to Expect:
Generally table based, face up and fully clothed, comfortable yet snug / secure straps stabilize the opposing limb from the current focus allowing for deeper, more meaningful and engaging stretch work. Sessions can last anywhere from 15 Min to 90 min depending on focus and need.
You may feel near instant results and / or release, though it can take time and more than one session to peel away layers of tension / tightness from years of progressive stressors and postural issues and begin to feel lasting improvements.
There is never a moment pain is involved or encouraged so constant communication throughout the session should be expected. This type of recovery work is much more engaging and interactive than massage work.
