Jessica will work with your body to release areas of tension without over stretching or pushing your body past any limits.
What is Fascial Stretch Therapy?
FSTTM, or Fascial Stretch Therapy, is a specialized method of assisted stretching that focuses on the fascia and joints. Through a series of targeted stretches, Jessica works with you to release tension deep within your tissues.
The goal is to ease restrictions within the fascia, alleviate the influence the nervous system exerts on the tissue, and enhance joint space by stretching the fascia throughout the body.
Ann Frederick originated this method in 1966, tailoring it to address the mobility needs of her professional athlete clients.
Viewing the body holistically, she concentrated on the continuous lines of fascia rather than isolated muscles. Utilizing a blend of traction, oscillation, and circumduction, she achieved notable results.
Later, her husband and physical therapist, Chris Frederick, joined her. They further refined and expanded the techniques, making them applicable to a broader audience looking to minimize pain and improve flexibility.
