Fascial Stretch Therapy Hamilton
What is Fascial Stretch Therapy (FST), you ask? Fascial Stretch Therapy is an assisted, table-based stretching system that focuses on the movement efficiency of the fascial lines. Fascial lines are organized connective tissue that groups multiple muscles from head to toe for movement and optimal distribution of tension throughout our bodies. This is a key element in achieving optimal flexibility, movement ability, performance and pain relief.
If you suffer from joint and/or muscle pain, or if you always feel stiff, inefficient and uncomfortable when active, Fascial Stretch Therapy (FST) should be your next move.
Fascia is the connective tissue that surrounds all structures of the body. It will often thicken and shorten when your tissues are under stress from poor posture, lack of movement, injury, surgery, disease or over-training. Fascial Stretch Therapy is a neuromuscular procedure that frees up your joints and surrounding musculature so you can move with more ease and less tension. FST can completely treat poor, stuck and over developed fascia at the deepest level–your joint capsule. We help to make your layers of fascia become more pliable and hydrated, so that the range of motion in your joints, muscle strength and flexibility immediately improve. This will make it easier for you to exercise and enjoy the freedom of movement.
Some benefits of fascial stretch therapy include:
- Improved speed, power, and work output
- Greater ease of movement
- Improved posture
- Reduced muscle soreness and tension
- Reduced risk of injury, including sprains and strains
- Release of endorphins to reduce stress and anxiety
- Improved movement efficiency and increased mileage on your body
- High success rate for resolving knee, hip, and low back pain
To facilitate relaxation and enhance the effectiveness of FST, clients should expect to participate with focused breathing while the session takes place on one of our comfortable massage tables. Simply let everything go to receive the maximum effects of this therapy.
