FST is a pain-free, table-based, assisted stretching technique that dramatically improves flexibility and reduces pain.
Pain and stiffness in the body are more likely the result of bound-up fascia than tight muscles. Fascia is the connective tissue that surrounds and permeates all structures in the body, connecting them all together.
Although initially developed for athletes, FST is a technique that can help anyone, at any age, who wants to simply feel better and improve not only flexibility but also strength, balance, coordination, body awareness, and posture.

Is FST like massage, yoga, or pilates?
FST is completely different, and it perfectly complements other methods of therapy and training. Unlike massage or other stretching techniques, FST focuses on the fascial nets in the body, not just individual muscles.
