What is Fascial Stretch Therapy?
Fascial Stretch Therapy (FST) is a type of assisted stretching therapy that targets connective tissue in the body that is vital to healthy movement of the body’s joints. This tissue is known as Fascia which surrounds your muscles, bones and joints and allows the body to bend and flex in a normal, pain free manner. When the Fascia in your body has not been stretched properly, mobility can become limited and it is likely that you will experience discomfort in your muscles and joints.
FST is performed by a certified stretch therapist on a table using a series of scientifically proven stretches that will relieve tension in both muscles and joints, while increasing a person’s range of motion. FST is often applied in combination with a personalized fitness regime, but it can also be effective as a stand alone therapy for people looking to relieve stress on their muscles and joints while improving overall flexibility.
Benefits of Fascial Stretch Therapy
With regular FST sessions, you will soon notice a significant decline in the amount of strain that is put on your muscles and joints. Whether you incorporate FST into your regular workout schedule, or receive this therapy as part of your rehabilitation from a recent injury, it will greatly reduce your chances of suffering strains or pulls in your muscles, and you will quickly notice a decline in the amount of pain you feel on a day to day basis.
Who Can Benefit From FTS?
Many people are often given the impression that this type of stretching therapy is only suited to athletes or people undergoing rehabilitation after suffering an injury to their muscle tissue or joints. While it is certainly true that FTS can be beneficial for athletes and patients recovering from injuries, it is also a great way for an average person to improve their own flexibility while reducing the chances of suffering an injury during a standard workout. At North Shore Personal Training, you can receive personalized therapy from an experienced trainer with Level 1 FTS certification. This therapy is ideal for everyone from veteran athletes to those that are new to the gym and looking to improve their health and personal fitness level.
