FST

Fascial Stretch Therapy

Flexibility in an athlete can be described as a feeling of flow and freedom when they move, as enhancing their strength and power, enabling them to accelerate and decelerate their body weight more effectively so that these movements become effortless and natural.

—Chris Frederick, Cofounder of Stretch to Win Institute

What is Fascial Stretch Therapy?

FST is a pain-free, assisted-stretch modality that utilizes a treatment table and stabilizing straps to increase ROM (Range of Motion), relieve pain and tightness, and increase athletic performance and recovery. This dynamic facilitated stretching technique targets the NeuroMyoFascial communication of the body for optimal improvements in mobility, flexibility, and functional movement. FST reduces adhesions throughout the fascial nets and re-educates your body back to proper movement.

Clients report feeling relaxed, lighter with improved flexibility / mobility after as little as one session.

How Does FST work?

  • Stretching sequences start with the joint capsule where up to 42% of restrictions in range of motion can occur. 
  • Stretches focus on lines of muscles and fascia, not just individual muscles.
  • Stretches occur in multiple angles and lines of movement.
  • Stretches incorporate traction and movement to more effectively increase joint space and release fascial adhesions.
  • FST manipulates, lengthens, re-aligns, and re-organizes your fascia.
  • FST can eliminate painful trigger points.

What is it like?

Imagine putting on a pair of shrunken jeans fresh out of the dryer, think of the way you would move, restricted and tight…you may have trouble bending down.

Now, imagine putting on a pair of loose pajama pants and think of how much easier and fluid your movements are when you are no longer restricted by those tight jeans. When you come in for a stretch, when you lay down it’s like you’ve got those tight jeans on, and when you get up your joints and tissues will feel looser like you’ve put on pajamas!

FAQ

Most frequent questions and answers

Fascia is a specialized system of the body that has an appearance similar to a spider’s web or a sweater. Fascia is very densely woven, covering and interpenetrating every muscle, bone, nerve, artery and vein, as well as, all of our internal organs including the heart, lungs, brain and spinal cord. The most interesting aspect of the fascial system is that it is not just a system of separate coverings. It is actually one continuous structure that exists from head to toe without interruption. In this way you can begin to see that each part of the entire body is connected to every other part by the fascia, like the yarn in a sweater.

Trauma, inflammatory responses, and/or surgical procedures create Myofascial restrictions that can produce tensile pressures of approximately 2,000 pounds per square inch on pain sensitive structures that do not show up in many of the standard tests (x-rays, myelograms, CAT scans, electromyography, etc.) A high percentage of people suffering with pain and/or lack of motion may be having fascial problems, but are not diagnosed.

People of all ages! Any patient cleared by their physician for stretching & active movement, fitness enthusiasts, and athletes of all levels.

FST is pain-free! It improves mobility of your nerves and flexibility of your muscles and fascia. Other methods focus on isolated muscle stretching which is often uncomfortable or even painful and results are only temporary.

Fascia surrounds each muscle, connects them to each other and penetrates deep inside them. It also connects muscles to tendons, ligaments, and bone to form a body wide, smart functional network. Fascia connects to all of your organs and systems too.

  • Fascia is the most prevalent tissue in the body yet it is the least understood by your doctor, therapist and trainer.
  • 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 medication that can improve your fascia.
  • There is NO supplement that can optimize your fascia.
  • Exercise alone does not optimally balance, align and improve your fascia.
  • decreased joint space can lead to degenerative joint disease, osteoarthritis and more
  • increased muscle tone can lead to trigger points, strain, tendonitis, tears & more
  • increased nervous tissue tone can lead to headaches, trigger points, muscle tightness & more
  • increased scar tissue formation
  • decreased blood flow, decreased energy, increased fatigue & more
