Fascial Stretch Therapy
Fascial Stretch Therapy (FST)
Fascial Stretch Therapy ™ is an assisted table-based stretching system that focuses on the fascia (the connective tissue that surrounds all structures of the body) as the key element in achieving optimal flexibility, strength, performance and pain relief. FST opens the joints and surrounding muscles to create ease on movement and less tension.
Roselby Rodriguez, FST Therapist
FST treats inflexible fascia at the deepest level – the joint capsule, making the layers of this tissue become more pliable, hydrated and increasing joint range of motion. Other benefits of FST range from improved posture, release of endorphins, reduction of muscles soreness and tension
The session takes place on a massage table with the client fully clothed and incorporates comfortable straps used to stabilize the limbs or part of the body not being worked on. This facilitates relaxation and enhances the effectiveness of the technique.
