Frequently Asked Questions:
What is fascia?
Fascia is the connective tissue system of the body that penetrates through and wraps around muscles, nerves, organs, and just about everything else in your body.
People of all ages! Any patient cleared by their physician for stretching & active movement, fitness enthusiasts, and athletes of all levels.
What is different about FST?
FST is pain-free! It improves mobility of your nerves and flexibility of your muscles and fascia. Other methods focus on isolated muscle stretching which is often uncomfortable or even painful and results are only temporary.
Why stretch fascia vs muscle?
Fascia surrounds each muscle, connects them to each other and penetrates deep inside them. It also connects muscles to tendons, ligaments, and bone to form a body wide, smart functional network. Fascia connects to all of your organs and systems too.
