Massage and FST work AMAZING when paired together. Our FST specialists' asses the body from a global standpoint and work through multiple lines of fascia, often at the same time. FST is a stretch of the fascia and joints, not a rub, knead, or trigger point release of the muscles. We will often work in conjunction with massage therapists to relieve issues our clients are experiencing. A number of our clients have said they now use massage as a means to relax and rejuvenate and utilize FST to help repair and restore the range of motion and functionality of their joints and relieve their aches and pains.

FST is backed by science and is part of an ongoing research study at the University of Arizona Medical School*.

FST is actively used by a variety of celebrities, sports organizations and corporations to improve their performance, reduce their stress and enhance their quality of life:

Celebrities: U2’s Bono, Bruce Springsteen, Charles Barkley

Athletes: various Olympic athletes and universities, numerous CFL (Toronto Argos, B.C. Lions), NFL (San Fran 49ers, Seattle Seahawks, Buffalo Bills), NBA (Memphis Grizzlies, Seattle Storm), and MLB (Arizona Cardinals, Boston Red Sox, St Louis Cardinals) teams

Organizations: Google and Microsoft organizations.

This list is not exclusive and an increasingly number of athletes and professionals are incorporating FST practice into their active fitness routines.

*The study is analyzing the effects of FST on chronic low back pain.

We are firm believers that everyone can benefit from FST! You don't have to be in pain, lack range of motion, have unstable joints or functionality issues. We all get into bad habits whether we realize it or not and it's our responsibility to treat our bodies with care and proper movement!

Client's we see:

  • Athletes looking to take their performance to the next level
  • On the road sales people looking to relieve their chronic lower back pain
  • Stay-at-home and new mom's suffering from headaches and shoulder tension from carrying and breastfeeding
  • School teacher's with achy hips and back
  • Commuters spending hours in their cars or on the GO Train
  • The active individual that doesn't suffer from any injuries, aches, pains or range of motion issues but feel like they've hit a plateau in their workouts
  • YOU!

Totally! We do stress that after a treatment it’s important to remember that your range has increased and your body will move more freely than it is used to. We encourage you to be careful when lifting heavy and quick high speed agility movements.

FST is taught through the Stretch To Win Institute which is not governed by a college, thereby no registered numbers can be submitted to insurance.

However, some companies offer a Wellness Benefit program or Wellness dollars and either treatment has in the past been accepted under this umbrella.
