What is Fascial Stretch Therapy?

We all know how important stretching is to our bodies... right? FST is an innovative Stretch Therapy Modality originally designed for Professional Athletes. Unlike Massage or other stretching techniques, FST starts at the joint capsule and focuses on planes of tissue and lines of muscles and fascia, not just individual muscles. Fascia is the material surrounding all muscles in your body. Like other tissues, fascia can become tight and less mobile. The result is decreased range of motion, discomfort with stretching, and decreased ability to recover from activity.

Did you know that, 47% of your flexibility is locked up in your joint capsule, and 42% of your flexibility potential is in your fascia? By extending the stretch to the joint capsule, you increase the benefits of traditional stretching, and the assisted nature of the treatment allows for greater gains than traditional stretching.

FST & Massage Therapy:

Unlocking The Body offers Therapy Sessions which combine the best of FST with focused Manual work. The session will be approximately half FST and half Massage Therapy. The exact proportion will vary from client to client. Sessions are available in 60, 90 or 120 minute lengths. Many clients find alternating FST and Massage Therapy sessions to be very effective. Jessica Campbell is the sole Practitioner at UTB who offers FST. If you have questions feel free to email her from her bio page or call the front desk to schedule!

FST was developed by Ann & Chris Frederick of the Stretch to Win Institute in Tempe, AZ
