fascial stretch therapy CalgaryPut in the simplest terms, FST is a table-based, assisted stretching system, though it is so much more than that.
Unlike most stretching protocols, (done by ourselves, or by professionals), FST focuses on specific principles to regulate the nervous system and aid the muscles, fascia, joints and nerves to return to a state of optimal function.

๐—ง๐—ฟ๐—ฎ๐—ฐ๐˜๐—ถ๐—ผ๐—ป: every stretch a therapist performs will be done with traction to create space in the joint to allow a greater ๐—ฝ๐—ฎ๐—ถ๐—ป๐—ณ๐—ฟ๐—ฒ๐—ฒ range of motion.

๐—•๐—ฟ๐—ฒ๐—ฎ๐˜๐—ต: FST is performed with great focus on moving with the breath to help bring the body back into a ๐—ฝ๐—ฎ๐—ฟ๐—ฎ๐˜€๐˜†๐—บ๐—ฝ๐—ฎ๐˜๐—ต๐—ฒ๐˜๐—ถ๐—ฐ state. This decreases stress and further helps the body relax out of tension. When the body feels safe, things relax.

๐—ฃ๐—ก๐—™: Proprioceptive Neuromuscular Facilitation, put into the simplest terms: this therapeutic technique targets the proprioceptors and the nervous system to reduce anxiety and overstimulation of specific muscles.

๐——๐—ฎ๐—ป๐—ฐ๐—ฒ: FST practitioners rely on dynamic, fluid motions and joint oscillations to allow the nervous system to find a place of safety so that the body can stop subconsciously (or consciously) guarding.

๐—ฃ๐—ฎ๐—ถ๐—ป๐—ณ๐—ฟ๐—ฒ๐—ฒ: Aside from a few deep stretches, FST should always be completely pain free. I ensure my clients stay at, or below a 6/10 on the perceived pain scale, if you canโ€™t breathe through a stretch, then we are only ramping up the nervous system. It isnโ€™t possible for the body to feel safe to let go, while in a state of pain.
