Fascial Stretch Therapy at Universal

Why Fascial Stretch Therapy?

Your entire body consists of fascia, connective tissue layers that surround muscles, organs, bones, and other structural components in the body. Since fascia is present in layers throughout your body, fascial stretch therapy focuses on the idea of improving global flexibility versus isolating muscles to improve flexibility.

Benefits of Fascial Stretch Therapy

  • Stretching the fascia, instead of just the muscle is extremely effective in improving flexibility and mobility throughout the body.
  • Improves your range of motion without causing pain
  • Tunes your nervous system in preparation for activity
  • Incorporates PNF (proprioceptive neuromuscular facilitation), which makes great gains in range of motion in a short time period
  • Can be adjusted to fit your specific goals and activities

Who can benefit from Fascial Stretch Therapy?


The stretch to win methodology of fascial stretch therapy has been proven highly effective for athletes such as NFL players and sprinters. Fascial stretch therapy is great for improving  coordination, speed, strength, and performance for athletes.

Corporate Professionals

If you have a desk job and find yourself sitting all day, fascial stretch therapy is great for opening up hips, lengthening hip flexors, and improving mobility of the spine. FST improves blood flow to the hip joints and lumbar spine.

Senior citizens

Improving overall flexibility and  joint mobility is key for senior citizens. This transfers to a greater improvement of  balance and strength. Fascial stretch therapy allows the entire fascial chain to be targeted, freeing up blocked tissue and improving overall movement patterns.

Post-rehab Clients

FST can speed up recovery from surgery and injury by improving blood flow to the target tissue. Healing occurs much faster with improved blood flow.

Almost everyone can benefit from Fascial stretch therapy. It improves mobility, improves tissue quality, and improves your quality of life!
