What is Fascia?

Fascia is an extensive web of connective tissue that surrounds your body’s muscles, joints, organs and all other systems within the body. When the body is under stressful conditions, fascia can build up and tighten. This can leave you feeling sore, tired, tight and disconnected. Often, self-stretching can help but isn’t completely effective in relieving discomfort associated with muscular and fascial tightness.

How does Fascial Stretch Therapy help?

Fascial stretching targets the build-up of fascial tissue in and around the affected area and can help to decrease tightness and pain, increase range of motion and flexibility, improve circulation and nerve signalling and reduces the risk of injury. Typically, fascial stretching is preformed on a table and is assisted by a trained Fascial Stretch Therapist. This method in pain free, gentle and relaxing.

Who can benefit from Fascial Stretch Therapy?

FST can benefit a wide range of populations. It’s great for athletes looking to increase range of motion without risk of pain or injury, increase athletic performance and stamina, and correct muscular imbalances. Clients who regularly sit at a desk for many hours can use FST to alleviate stiffness in necks, spines and hips as well as clients working in more labour-intensive jobs to help decrease lower back pain, knee pain and foot soreness.
