What is Fascial Stretch Therapy?
What is Fascia?
Fascia is the body’s connective tissue. It is a head to toe, inside to out, all encompassing and interwoven system of fibrous connective tissue found throughout the body. Your fascia provides a framework that helps support and protect individual muscle groups, organs, and the entire body as a unit.
The vitality and strength of your fascia is key to good health and synergy throughout each system of your body. With fascial adhesions and distortions; poor blood flow, weaker nerve impulses, limited flexibility and range of motion occur. Pain levels increase and quality of life suffers.
Treatment or restoration of fascial restrictions include proper nutrition, adequate hydration, exercise and fascial stretching.
What is FST
FST is pain-free process that improves mobility of your nerves and flexibility of your muscles and fascia. It is a passive-assisted stretch that benefits people of all ages and fitness levels, who are cleared by their physician for stretching and active movements. It is performed on a treatment table, using stabilization straps to hold limbs in place, giving the therapist better control and leverage when performing stretches. Your body will be moved and stretched in ways that you likely have never felt before. It works deep into the joint capsules of your body that is not attainable with other manual interventions.
Who Gets FST
Still widely unknown to most of the general public, FST it is growing rapidly throughout the country. Professional teams and athletes have been using it for years as part of their treatment programs.
But it’s not just a treatment for athletes. Fascia Strength Therapy benefits people of all ages and activity levels. We lose 10% of our flexibility for every 10 years that we age unless we actively work at maintaining it. There are new discoveries everyday in the continued research of fascia, and how treatment positively affects us.
