Created by Anne and Chris Frederick, fascial stretch therapy combines the technical aspects of flexibility with grace and fluid movements. It truly is an amalgamation of science and art.
Chris Frederick uses his physical therapy background to perfect the fascial stretch therapy technique anatomically, while Anne Frederick uses flawless movement and leverage to create synergy between client and therapist.
The stretch to win methodology provides practitioners with new tools and formidable resources in the world of flexibility. It provides clients with a results-based flexibility experience that improves mobility, strength, and tissue quality.
Your entire body consists of fascia, connective tissue layers that surround muscles, organs, bones, and other structural components in the body. Since fascia is present in layers throughout your body, fascial stretch therapy focuses on the idea of global stretching instead of isolated stretching.
The stretch to win methodology of fascial stretch therapy has been proven highly effective for athletes such as NFL players and sprinters. Fascial stretch therapy is great for improving coordination, speed, strength, and performance for athletes.
If you have a desk job and find yourself sitting all day, fascial stretch therapy is great for opening up hips, lengthening hip flexors, and improving mobility of the spine. FST improves blood flow to the hip joints and lumbar spine.
Improving overall flexibility and joint mobility is key for senior citizens. This transfers to a greater improvement of balance and strength. Fascial stretch therapy allows the entire fascial chain to be targeted, freeing up blocked tissue and improving overall movement patterns.
FST can speed up recovery from surgery and injury by improving blood flow to the target tissue. Healing occurs much faster with improved blood flow.
Almost everyone can benefit from Fascial stretch therapy. It improves mobility, improves tissue quality, and improves your quality of life!
