What is Fascial Stretch Therapy?

CFST-1

Fascial Stretch Therapy (FST), is a type of stretching that targets more than just the muscles. It targets the fascia as well. Fascia is the connective tissue that surrounds muscles, bones, and joints, in fact almost everything that is you. FST also targets the entire joint and joint capsule. Think of the Joint Capsule like a hinge. If the hinge is rusty or stuck, the door won’t move very easily. FST uses traction to remove restrictions from movement and to stimulate lubrication. A certified therapist has been trained and knows how to gently pull and move the arms, legs, spine, and neck in a smooth motion. There is no pain, not even discomfort. Instead, the gentle movement is stimulating and relaxing at the same time.

what people are saying..

  • The best place for quality instructors. Great one on one instruction and group classes are very enjoyable too. One of the best places I have found for good pilaties classes.

  • Thank you to the excellent Teachers at The Pilates Barr. My chiropractor recommended Pilates to me as a sound method of strengthening my body. I can say it works! I have never felt better and stronger since I joined the Pilates Barr. The teachers are so professional and the classes are conducted with the care and learning and safety of students. I feel totally confident learning this method and without fear of injuring myself. It’s a fun learning environment.

  • The Pilates Barr is a cool place to spend a few hours a week. My twice weekly sessions help develop core strength and improve balance and all those good things. But that time also gives me space to step away briefly from the concerns of ordinary life in a calm and supportive environment — and that is equally important to me. Lisa, garden designer.
