Fascial Stretch Therapy is an assisted manual stretch therapy that is performed with the client comfortably secured to the massage table. It focuses on elongating, re-aligning, and balancing the connective tissues of the body.


The rapid and pain-free results occur within one session.  Flexibility is immediately improved along with strength, balance, coordination, body awareness and posture. The client is given a specific progressive home stretch program that focuses on the fascia to maintain the positive changes and benefits gained from an FST session with a therapist.

 

Our youth athletes and adults report no pain, improved range of motion, better sleep quality, reduced anxiety, improved posture, and flexibility. Check out our student rates!
