Our Approach

Fascial Stretch Therapy (FST) is a neuromyofascial manual therapy method that places a strong emphasis on the connective tissue system, rather than merely treating isolated muscles. FST involves an extensive assessment that evaluates passive, active, and resisted movements in functional positions as well as on a treatment table.

The FST approach commences with assessing and treating the deepest layer of the connective tissue system, namely the joint capsule. From there, it systematically progresses through all the layers of fascia, concluding with the superficial layer. This approach aims to address any restrictions or suboptimal function in the central or peripheral nervous system, restoring proper neural mechanics. This process can activate previously inhibited muscles and normalize those that are overly activated.

Ultimately, FST includes prescribing a home program for the individual, making them an active participant in their journey toward improved wellness or enhanced sport performance.

Benefits of FST

  • Enhanced posture and improved functional abilities, enabling you to accomplish tasks that were previously challenging.

  • The alleviation of pain, which paves the way for a higher quality of life, free from discomfort

  • The restoration of normal joint space, which contributes to anti-aging and maintaining joint health over time

  • A significant positive impact on sports performance, enhancing your athletic abilities and potential

  • A reduction in the risk of injuries, allowing you to pursue your fitness, recreation, and sports goals without interruptions and setbacks

Features of FST

  • Manipulation, elongation, realignment, and reorganization of the fascia, the body’s connective tissue system

  • A pain-free approach that effectively increases joint space, enhancing comfort and mobility

  • Elimination of trigger points, which leads to improved muscle activation and relaxation

  • Immediate improvement in flexibility after the very first session, with cumulative benefits achieved through multiple sessions

  • Education on maintaining optimal fascial flexibility, helping you sustain the benefits and address any identified issues on an ongoing basis

Did You Know?

  • Fascia is the most abundant tissue in the body, yet it remains one of the least understood aspects of our physiology by doctors, therapists, and trainers

  • The condition of your fascia directly impacts the health and functionality of your joints and muscles

  • Optimal flexibility in your fascia is a crucial factor in maintaining healthy circulation in various parts of the body, including muscles, joints, arteries, veins, the brain, and spinal cord

  • No medication exists that can enhance the condition of your fascia, emphasizing the importance of non-pharmacological approaches like Fascial Stretch Therapy

  • Similarly, no supplement can effectively optimize the state of your fascia, highlighting the unique role of manual therapies in its care and maintenance
