Fascial Stretch Therapy
What is fascial stretch?
Fascial Stretch Therapy (FST) began in the NFL and later reached other sports such as NHL and rugby. It is a pain-free assisted stretch system that assesses and improves restrictions in the body helping you with performance, injury prevention and pain reduction. We are super excited to have Melissa introduce FST to our KBC members.
Who should consider FST?
- Dealing with chronic back pain: Chronic back pain is often a result of muscle tightness, joint stiffness and lack of mobility. FST can put an end to your pain by restoring mobility and function.
- Regularly train: Recovery is key to training and FST improves blood flow to tired muscles resulting in less soreness and quick recovery!
- Active lifestyle: FST can help you better your running pace, life heavier weights, increase flexibility and shoot up your endurance.
- Dealing with an old injury: Your therapist will help you with your range of motion allowing your body to slowly get rid of unwanted compensations.
What are the benefits of stretching?
- Reduce pain
- Reduce risk of injury
- Reduce or eliminate tight muscles
- Reduce or eliminate stiff joints
- Improve circulation
- Improve posture
- Make you stronger
- Better range of motion
Mobility Maintenance and Improvement is important for all ages, fitness levels, and not limited to recreational or competitive athletes.
🥊Our private sessions start with an assessment of where restrictions are present in your body.
🥊We proceed with a Fascial Stretch Therapy session, focusing our attention to restricted areas.
🥊At the end of our FST session the client is given a Flexibility Maintenance Program to continue independent work on improving the health of their fascia and improving their mobility.
The best way to know if FST is for you is by signing up for your first session. Book your session today!
