Fascial Stretch Therapy (FST™)

FST™ is a unique and comprehensive system of table-based, assisted stretching that relieves stress and tension within the fascia, a form of connective tissue that surrounds muscles, joints and bones. FST™ has enormous athletic and non-athletic benefits, as it not only increases the flexibility and range of motion that are crucial for performance, but also relieves stress and soreness, reduces back and neck tightness, promotes physical and mental relaxation and improves posture.



During a 30-minute FST™ session, PIER trainer Sandra Johnson, certified level 3 Fascial Stretch Specialist gently pulls and moves the client’s legs, arms, spine and neck in different ways to stretch the fascia and lubricate joints, calming down the nervous system and relieving tension. This constant movement through multiple planes of motion (up and down, side to side, and in and out), coupled with synchronized breathing, is what sets FST apart from traditional stretching and produces therapeutic effects.

ATHLETIC BENEFITS OF FST™:

  • Reduces the risk of injury
  • Decreases muscle tension and soreness to aid recovery
  • Increases flexibility and joint mobility in the shoulders, hips and ankles that benefit swimmers, gymnasts, dancers, volleyball players, catchers, goalies, weight lifters and CrossFit athletes
  • Improves trunk and hip rotation that benefits athletes in rotational sports such as baseball, hockey, figure skating and golf
