She is going to be able to provide Contemporary medical acupuncture in conjunction to her massage treatments in order to better treat musculoskeletal pain and movement pattern issues as of January 2018.
Fascial Stretch Therapy (FST) is a unique system of table-based assisted stretching which focuses on the muscles and connective tissue that surround and encompass the joints.
Fascia is a network of layered connective tissue that surrounds muscles, bones and joints. The joint capsule that surrounds joints is involved in optimizing the mechanical function of the joint and is also part of the fascial network.
What makes this therapy different from other flexibility programs is that each stretch begins with a light traction of the joint being treated, to allow for a deeper stretch. This is an excellent treatment choice for those wanting to improve flexibility, recover from training, and for injury prevention.
