Mobility is a significant factor in both the health and performance of an athlete. Many of athletes we see, from high school through college and adult, have some form of tightness or restriction. Sometimes it shows up in the form a of a sore back or knee. Sometimes it comes out as a limiting factor in their speed , agility or technical skill performance.
While traditional stretching, when it’s done, can have some benefits, it typically addresses specific muscles, most often in a static way. As a result, the benefits are limited.
There is a better way: Fascial Stretch Therapy™.
FST™ was developed over twenty years ago by Ann Frederick as a table based, pain free way to increase mobility and flexibility. It actually addresses full fascial lines throughout the whole body. Because FST™ uses a whole-body concept based in anatomy and functional movement, it results in improved flexibility and greater gains in mobililty over traditional stretching.
Sessions are done on a massage table and players wear the same clothing they would for a training session or workout. The process is pain free and relaxing with immediate results.
If you watch the NFL on Sundays or you’ve seen the summer Olympics you’ve most likely watched athletes who use FST™. FST™ is now available for Kick-It! Training athletes.
In addition to increased mobility and flexibility, other benefits of FST™ include :
- Improved Performance ( speed, agility, strength and power)
- Enhanced Recovery
- Relaxation and Stress Relief
- Reduced Pain and Soreness
- Improved Body Alignment and Posture
