The Fascial Stretch Therapy™ approach is different from other forms of stretching and hands on techniques. The focus is on applying appropriate tension, with the addition of joint traction, throughout the functional lines of muscles that work together and are connected by connective tissues, or fascia from body region to body region.
Your therapist is always listening to what your nervous system is happy tolerating by means of the generation of soft tissue tension as your body is slowly moved through its range. Using this acute awareness of the tissue response, the therapist will avoid pushing too far. As a result, there’s never a point where the therapist is attempting to force or coerce the tissue, which means the results are achieved without pain.
FST is a great approach for everyone – from athletes to individuals with chronic pain. Ask one of our therapists for more info on this great technique!
