Life sometimes brings a full range of aches and pains, some of which can be so serious that they affect both the ability to move freely and quality of life. In an effort to help chronic pain sufferers, new techniques like fascial stretch therapy have been developed.
Fascia refers to fibrous connecting tissue, more specifically the connective tissue which covers your joints, ligaments, tendons, muscles and bones. Now that we explained fascia, let’s examine what fascial stretch therapy is exactly. It’s a relatively new form of treatment that involves the therapist performing assisted stretching techniques with a client on a treatment table.
Fascial stretch therapy found its roots in 1995 when Ann Frederick established her clinic with one key goal in mind: to improve the performance of professional athletes by changing the way they stretched. Since then, their system continues to rapidly and radically transform personal and professional lives.
Fascial stretch therapy (FSTTM) can help treat several conditions such as disc herniation, facet joint dysfunctions, chronic headaches, plantar and pinched nerves. Many benefit from this technique, restoring, improving and maintaining mobility as well as general well-being.
FST is a pain-free, relaxing approach that has endless benefits. It’s important to understand, as with all therapy, pain and chronic problems are not something that can be fixed and cured overnight. Just as it takes times for things to build up in the body and cause problems, it takes time to undo the damage.
Why should you consider booking a fascial stretch therapy:
- Fascia is the most prevalent tissue in the body.
- The health and function of all joints & muscles are a direct result of the condition of your fascia.
- Healthy circulation in your muscles, joints, arteries, veins, brain & spinal cord is largely dependent on optimal flexibility of your fascia.
- There is NO medicationthat can improve your fascia.
- There is NO supplementthat can optimize your fascia.
- Exercise alone does not optimally balance, align and improve your fascia.
