FASCIAL STRETCH THERAPY
Fascial Stretch Therapy (FST) combines the art of manual therapy with science. FST is an innovative type of assisted stretching that is based in neuroscience and on emerging new discoveries in fascia. Utilized by professional athletes, it improves mobility and helps prevent injuries, reduces pain, improves strength, and optimizes athletic performance. FST targets not only muscles but also their neighboring joints, ligaments, tendons, and bones. And of course, fascia!

You should dress in loose, comfortable clothing and lay face up on the massage table. You and Colleen will work together during the session – you will be prompted to contract and relax different muscle groups and breathe deeply, allowing for a deeper stretch. The stretches are not painful. Many clients have said that fascial stretching feels better than massage.
A typical session is between 60 and 90 minutes. Part of the session is spent doing some massage and trigger point work on areas of your body that are especially tight.
