Fascial Stretch Therapy
Fascial stretch therapy is a treatment that helps alleviate chronic aches and pains through assisted stretching that targets the fascia to help restore it to its natural movement.
Benefits of Fascial Stretch Therapy
How Does Fascial Stretch Therapy Work?
Fascial stretch therapy helps you regain your mobility and chronic pain issues through assisted, hands-on stretching techniques while you lie on a treatment table. Comfortable straps help stabilize the limb or part of the body that is not being stretched in order to facilitate complete relaxation and to enhance the effectiveness of the stretches. Fascia is malleable and will conform to treatment by re-aligning itself, eliminate thicknesses, imbalances, muscular and structural rigidity.
Depending on the specifics of your injury and, how your body responds, will determine the right recovery method for you. We offer a range of techniques to find the most effective treatment.
Ease scar tissue deep within muscles, reduce swelling, muscle knots, increase circulation and anxiety with cupping. The action of cupping lifts the skin into the cup by creating a vacuum and, ultimately, pulls up the fascia and loosens the muscle, encouraging blood flow and reducing pain.
For soft tissue injuries, blading helps break down scar tissue and fascia restrictions that are associated with some form of trauma to soft tissue like a strained or pulled muscle.
Tape is applied to the skin to provide support when strengthening weaker muscles and allows you to continue with your athletic activity.
Want more energy? Learn to get more oxygen into your tissues by using more of your diaphragm than your accessory muscles. Better breathing techniques will also help anyone with asthma as well as down-regulating your nervous system.
Dysfunctional movement patterns form from injury–physical or emotional–and cause pain. These patterns can easily be re-programmed–imprinting new learnings of the motor control center of the brain replacing damaged patterns and, consequently, pain relief.
Poor posture, poor flexibility, and repetitive movements pull the fascia into ingrained patterns. Adhesions form within the stuck and blocked fascial tissue like snags in a sweater, and make our bodies feel heavy, thick, and uncomfortable. The good news is that your fascia is incredibly malleable and has almost ridiculous self-healing abilities.
