Fascial Stretch Therapy (FST)

What is Fascial Stretch Therapy™ (FST)?

Fascial Stretch Therapy is a unique, complete and complementary system of table-based assisted stretching that dramatically helps to improve flexibility by lengthening and realigning the fascia.  Fascia is a web of connective tissue that surrounds muscles, joints, tendons and ligaments.

Iva works  through a series of client-specific stretches which flows and are choreographed into movements. Synchronized breath, both client and practitioner, is used to influence the ease into a gradual series of gentle, but deep stretching movements. The experience is relaxing and pain-free. FST incorporates multiple angles and planes of movement to take advantage of the unique mobility of certain joints. More importantly, FST focuses on decompressing your joints to affect profound positive changes in your body. Clinical studies have shown that this form of stretching can increase flexibility by up to 52% in your very first session.
