Fascial Stretch Therapy (FST)

Fascial Stretch Therapy (FST) is a gentle and pain-free method of table-based assisted stretching, focusing on releasing connective tissue (fascia) adhesions to achieve optimal flexibility, strength,

performance, and pain relief. Through the use of traction, PNF, and rhythmic breath-based

undulating movements, FST seeks to improve functioning of the circulatory, nervous and

musculoskeletal systems, while decelerating the aging of the body, mind and spirit.
