NOW at NRG 4 Life we offer Fascial Stretch Therapy for anyone who suffers from chronic pain, poor posture, tightness or stiffness. This service is offered to members and non-members who are looking to improve their quality of life.
FST is a pain-free, unique, table based form of assisted stretching. FST focuses on the fascia and the joint capsule as the key elements in achieving optimal flexibility, strength, performance and pain relief. FST can give you a feeling of deep relaxation and rejuvenation. It works by breaking up the connective tissue allowing better range of motion in your muscles and joint capsules.
Fascia is the connective tissue that wraps around muscles, tendons, bones, ligaments and organs. The web-like layer of tissue is everywhere, we just can’t see it, or really feel it. Chronic stress causes tissue to tighten and thicken in an attempt to protect the underlying muscle. Poor posture, lack of flexibility and repetitive movements pull the fascia into ingrained patterns.
Zero pain: Massage and stretching therapies that focus on rehabbing an injury or breaking up scar tissue can be quite painful, but fascial stretching is incredibly gentle. You shouldn’t feel any pain at all, just mild stretching.
Greatly Reduces or Eliminates Pain: Most chronic pain is caused by the fascia compressing your muscles, when fascia is stretched it decompresses allowing your muscles to move freely, therefore reducing or completely eliminating pain.
Improved Performance: Facial Stretch Therapy is science-based. Studies are showing how it could help you run faster, lift heavier, boost endurance, improve coordination, and increase flexibility. Most importantly, it can help us feel better by relieving muscle fatigue and tiredness while improving movement in our daily activities.
Improved Posture: When fascia is stretched it allows our muscles to have a greater range of motion helping you stand up taller, making you look healthier and more confident.
