We are very excited to announce that we are taking Fascial Stretch Therapy (FST) Level 1, from the Stretch to Win Institute, and will be offering this treatment to our clients as of April 1 2017.
Not sure what fascia is? Essentially it is layers of connective tissue in the body, that surround all organs and muscles, providing support. Think of a shirt: when you tug on one corner of the shirt you will see ripples in the rest of the fabric. Fascia is like this, it is entirely connected throughout the whole body. When one area becomes restricted, it affects the rest of the body.
FST works with the client to decrease fascial adhesions and increase range of motion. It is a great treatment on its own or in conjunction with regular massage, and it will benefit people of all ages, whether you are quite active or not.
We look forward to hearing from you and treating you!
