Fascial Stretch Therapy

Fascial Stretch Therapy is a unique system of table-based assisted stretching which focuses on the muscles and connective tissue that surround and encompass the joints.

Fascia is a network of layered connective tissue that surrounds muscles, bones and joints. The joint capsule that surrounds joints is involved in optimizing the mechanical function of the joint and is also part of the fascial network. When the fascia and joint capsules are restricted it can cause increased muscle tone, strains, and tears. It also contributes to scar tissue formation which inhibits efficient movement patterns, increasing tightness even further.

What makes this therapy different from other flexibility programs is that each stretch begins with a light traction of the joint being treated, to allow for a deeper stretch. This is an excellent treatment choice for those wanting to improve flexibility, recover from training, reduce back pain, treat shoulder impingement, improve postural issues, prevent injury, and improve athletic performance.

Fascial Stretch Therapy can be incorporated into a Massage Therapy session, or be provided as its own service; with clients treated in comfortable loose fitting clothing (shorts or track pants and t-shirt or tank top).
