Fascial Stretch Therapy (FST) is a complete system of stretching based on the most recent research and clinical findings on fascia. It is done by a certified therapist on a treatment table using comfortable straps to ensure the client is relaxed and supported.
FST mobilizes the body’s soft tissue and joints in a pain free way, improving overall flexibility and decreasing muscle tension. It can also improve movement patterns, posture, and circulation. FST was designed to maximize flexibility and athletic performance in professional athletes but it is also highly effective in restoring or improving mobility after injury. Plus, it just feels good! Kelly Whitman is a certified Level 2 Fascial Stretch Therapist. For more information on FST please see the Stretch to Win website: stretchtowin.com
