Fascial Stretch Therapy

Ease tension, realign the body, and increase mobility

About Fascial Stretch Therapy (FST)

Fascial Stretch Therapy (FST) is an innovative, assisted-stretching technique that increases mobility, eases tension, and relieves pain. FST treats the fascia, a layer of connective tissue that encases and supports the muscles, joints, tendons, and ligaments. Unlike targeted muscle stretching, FST uses gentle movements to relieve your entire tissue system for longer-lasting mobility improvements.

Fascial stretch therapy differs from traditional stretching and body work because it focuses on joints and fascia tissue as a whole. The body’s ten “fascial mobility nets” or groupings of fascia play different roles in our movements. FST targets these groupings to ease tension, realign the body, and improve functionality versus targeting and stretching one muscle or muscle group at a time.

Your 1:1 Session

At LaRose Muscular Therapy we offer one-on-one stretch therapy sessions in comfortable, private rooms that follow strict COVID safety protocols. Upon arrival, first-time clients are assessed on their needs, pains, medical history, and expectations. We then develop a customized stretch plan to achieve your personal mobility goals, including a recommended treatment schedule and home stretches.

When starting treatment, you’ll lay on a table and be asked to relax your muscles. The therapist will then perform stretches and will guide you on breathing and table re-positioning throughout the duration of treatment. Our clients find sessions to be calming, relaxing, and even euphoric.
