What is Fascia?
- Deep aching muscle pain
- Specific muscle pain that persists or worsens
- A tender point in a muscle
- Difficulty sleeping due to muscle pain
- Muscle fatigue with sitting or in certain postures
What causes fascial tightness
- In activity or movement (long hours sitting at a desk or computer)
- Repetitive movement patterns (work or sport related)
- Injury or surgery
Usually treatment includes a combination of therapies
Here are some examples of therapies that work well together to treat fascial tightness:
- Stretching -yoga, self stretching, and assisted stretching (FST)
- Massage therapy
What is Fascial Stretch Therapy (FST)?
FST uses techniques that stretch multiple lines of fascia at a time including joint capsules, and not just an isolated muscle group. This in turn increased joint mobility and range of motion.
Along with FST, Thai massage techniques are integrating into treatments to ground and relax the central nervous system to aid in stretching and to create an overall relaxing experience.
What are the Benefits of Fascial Stretch Therapy?
What to expect during a Fascial Stretch Therapy Treatment?
During treatment slow undulating movements, traction, and PNF (proprioceptive Neuromuscular facilitation).
In order to fully benefit from FST, a few sessions are required, all though you will notice a difference after the first session.
