Fascial Stretch Therapy(TM)
Fascial Stretch Therapy(TM) is a unique and complementary system of table-based assisted stretching which focuses on the muscles and connective tissue that surround and encompass the joints. It is used by professional athletes regularly to improve performance, improve flexibility and help prevent injury.
Fascia is a network of layered connective tissue that surrounds muscles, bones and joints. A joint capsule is also a connective tissue structure that surrounds joints and is part of the fascial network.
Restricted fascia and joint capsules can lead to conditions such as osteoarthritis, increased muscle tightness, strains, tendinopathies, headaches, scar tissue formation, decreased blood flow and lower energy levels
