Facilitated stretch therapy (FST)

Contrary to popular belief, stretching isn’t exclusive to athletes, neither is it just only beneficial to the body after a workout session. Regular stretching helps to relieve tense and tight muscles that could also be attributed to long hours at a desk-bound job or muscles that have tightened due to pain from previous injuries.

The service entails stretching the fascia tissue, soft tissue and mobilizing joints, all of which are not targeted during a regular DIY stretching session. FST stretches the surface and deep muscles and tissue by using a combination of techniques including oscillatory movements, passive and active stretching, joint mobilization and massages techniques.

Each of the different technique helps with a different purpose. For example, oscillations help to relax muscles and move synovial fluids (natural lubricants) in your joints to smoothen movements. While passive and active stretching involves lengthening a target muscle group, holding a resistive force provided by the client, and increase lengthening upon relaxation. For maximal effectiveness, deep tissue massage techniques are incorporated while the muscles are placed at their stretched position.

The importance of Flexibility
However, on our own, we are only able to stretch the muscles on the surface and not the deeper tissues and muscles. The importance of being able to stretch deeper muscles and tissues revolves around one word – flexibility.
One may wonder, why do I need to be flexible? I’m not aiming to be a gymnast, neither am I an athlete. Well, flexibility helps your body to move in the most optimal form – minimizing your risk of injury and preventing the onset of muscle strains and degenerative joint disorders.

Why can’t I stretch on my own?
Stretching on your own is recommended for daily maintenance; however you will not be able to achieve the same results that you would get if you were to come for a facilitated stretching session. It is important to engage the services of an experienced and qualified individual as inappropriate stretching may lead to over-exertion and injuries.

What are the benefits of facilitated stretching?
Facilitated stretching aims to improve mobility, flexibility, strength and circulation. It engages an entire network of muscles, joints, tendons, ligaments, and bones. This results in enhancement of physical performance and improvement in general well-being.

Pain and soreness can also be reduced or eliminated and the positive difference of going through a facilitated stretching can be felt immediately after a session.

Who can benefit from facilitated stretching?
Everyone can stand to benefit from having regular facilitated stretching sessions, especially the following groups of people:
– Individuals with chronic pain
– Individuals with mobility issues
– Sedentary office workers
– Athletes
– People who are not suited to do yoga due to restrictions or precautions into extreme ranges.

Why stretch with us?
Here at NuSports, we go far beyond the surface. During your 45 minute session, our team of stretch therapists will focus on your problem areas and each session is customized to your needs. Sometimes your therapist will choose to spend more time on certain areas deemed necessary to achieve the expected therapeutic effect.

Facilitated stretch therapy is a safe and effective way to maintain your body’s physical function and wellness. We ensure this by maintaining constant communication during the session to ensure that the stretch is at the right intensity.
