What is Fascial Stretch Therapy (FST)?
FST is a type of stretching that targets not only the muscles, but the fascia – which is the connective tissue surrounding your muscle, bones and joints. FST also targets the entire joint and joint capsule, using traction to remove restrictions from movement and to stimulate lubrication. A therapist will gently pull and move the arms, legs, spine, and neck in a smooth motion through different planes of movement. There is no pain, not even discomfort. Instead, the gentle movement is stimulating and relaxing at the same time.
