What is Fascial Stretch Therapy
How Can We Help
Fascial Stretch Therapy (FST) is a system of assisted stretching which focuses on the muscles, joints, and connective tissue. The therapist will help you stabilize your body as you are gently helped into specific stretches to help facilitate relaxation and movement into your joints and body.
The goal of FST is to restore proper neural mechanics where the central or peripheral nervous system is restricted and/or when movement is not optimal. This therefore leads to the activation of muscles that were previously inhibited as well as normalizing muscle groups which were hyperactive. A home exercise program will be prescribed in order to allow the patient to be an active partner on their journey to health, wellness, and an active life.

What is Fascia?
When most people think of the body, they think of bones, muscles, and organs.
An often-overlooked part of the body that fewer people know about is the fascia. The fascia is the vast network of connective tissue that run through your whole body. It surrounds your muscles, nerves, bones, joints and organs. It turns out that many injuries and loss of flexibility over time, including range of motion, involve the fascia.
Restricted fascia and joint capsules can lead to conditions such as osteoarthritis, painful movement, increased muscle tightness, strains, tendon injuries, headaches, scar tissue formation, decreased blood flow and reduced energy levels.
