What is Fascial Stretch Therapy?

One of the newest ways of going about stretching your body is through fascial stretch therapy. This type of therapy helps to stretch out both the joint capsules and the fascia within the body, alleviating pain and increasing your body’s ability to perform. You will notice some relief immediately after experiencing fascial stretch therapy, but with each additional session, your body will respond even more.

The Basics of Fascial Stretch Therapy

Fascial stretch therapy allows you to get the joint capsules within your body stretched out, along with the fascia surrounding your joints, muscles, and bones. These different forms of connective tissues keep the body moving fluidly, and when they don’t stretch or move like they should, it can cause pain, muscle stiffness, and actual damage to your joints, muscles, and bones. The fascial stretch therapy is done on a table with assistance so that you do not over-stretch and cause damage to your body.

The Benefits of Fascial Stretch Therapy

Aside from the obvious benefits of fascial stretch therapy, such as pain relief, increased strength and flexibility, and better performance, there are other benefits that come with this type of therapy. Fascial stretch therapy allows you to increase the space in your joints, helping you to avoid osteoarthritis and other types of degenerative diseases, plus it can increase the blood flow you have to each joint. This will help you keep your range of motion and reduce the buildup of scar tissue within each joint. Your joints, muscles, and bones will age more slowly and have a lower risk of being injured as you age, you will have better posture, improved stamina and strength with less soreness in your muscles.
