Most people think of stretching as painful, but the innovative technique of Fascial Stretch Therapy is exactly the opposite.
This relatively new form of treatment involves a therapist performing assisted stretching techniques with a client lying on a massage table. Because it combines coordinated breathing techniques, joint tractioning, and movement through a full range of motion, Fascial Stretch Therapy (FST) is both relaxing and effective in improving flexibility and relieving pain.
Only a few practitioners in the area are trained in Fascial Stretch Therapy and Longmont is very fortunate to have one of them at Advance Health and Fitness.
