  • What is Massage Bodywork?

    Massage and Bodywork.



    The goal of FST™ is to down-regulate the nervous system, taking you out of “Fight or Flight”, and restore proper myoneural (muscle and mind) mechanics in areas that were once restricted, improving optimal movement pain-free! With FST™ there is no pain, not even discomfort because the practitioner uses traction to move the arms, legs, spine, and neck in a smooth motion through varying planes of movement, relaxing the nervous system. Using traction also decompresses the joints which take the pressure off nerves and also allow synovial joint fluid to develop and lubricate the joint capsule.

    What does fascia look like?

    This is an image of the fascia under a microscope. As you can see here, fascia is a web-like structure made up of collagen and elastin. This connective tissue intertwines throughout the entire body, connecting itself to the joints, tendons, ligaments, as well as through each layer of muscle cells. This tissue encapsulates and glues our bodies together forming as an intracellular matrix of webbing.

    What can I expect from Fascial Stretch Therapy?

    Fascial Stretch Therapy is not like other stretches, it is pain-free, relaxing, easy, and convenient for any person. Clients are fully clothed in athletic or loose clothing and remain passive as the practitioner performs the assisted stretches on a massage table. There is no use of oils or creams, and the client will leave a session feeling lighter, more relaxed, and renewed.


    The beginning of each session starts with the practitioner evaluating their client, looking for imbalances, as well as the source of those imbalances. The practitioner and client synchronize breath to help with the movement, relaxing the body and allowing the warm-up of joints and muscles and thus increase joint lubrication with maximum blood flow to the tissues.


    During each session techniques of slow undulating movement (known as the StretchWave™), traction (a gentle pull to create space in the joint), and a modified form of PNF (proprioceptive neuromuscular facilitation), and synchronized breathing, are used to stretch the entire body. The practitioner follows a safe and effective logical anatomical order to lengthen the muscle, increase range of motion, and improve flexibility.
