I've noticed my growth more in my ability to help people than just my concept of the knowledge...I'm able to help people in a way I've never been able to help before.

Public awareness about attaining optimal mobility and flexibility for a healthier, more satisfying lifestyle is at an all-time high level. However, premium-quality stretching by professionals is not meeting demand. And without proper guidance, the risk of straining yourself or others with traditional stretching is significant.
After training with us, your confidence and capability will not only meet but exceed the current demand for quality, effective stretching. You will help most people by reducing pain, improving function and performance in all aspects of their lives. A majority of our students report doubling their income and recovering their entire investment within just a couple months of starting to offer Frederick Stretch Therapy treatments.
When I got home and I started working on people, the faces and the impact it had on people when they got off the table was unlike something I've never seen before.

Paige, a former police officer and FST practitioner, found through FST not only a way to heal her PTSD, but also a way to help her fellow first responders with their trauma.

This is unlike any other continuing education experience or even career training you've ever had. Our approach and environment is fun and learner centered for the individual, not large groups. This is exclusively hands-on training for 5 days, with each significant movement demonstrated before students gather with a teacher in their own small group. You will both experience the work from the teacher and get to practice on them too in order to optimally learn before practicing on your peers.
This has been a real paradigm shift in my life. I thought I was just coming out to learn a modality, just something to bring back to the clients to help them with their modality...But I learned that FST is so much more than that.

Yes. If you lack knowledge of anatomy, we recommend this app, Complete Anatomy, as well as the Anatomy Trains book by Tom Myers:
FST is a very different approach developed by Ann and Chris Frederick. Stretch to Win’s Fascial Stretch Therapy is a neuromyofascial manual therapy that focuses on the connective tissue system rather than isolated muscle treatment. We assess passive, active and resisted movements in functional positions as well as on the treatment table. The approach starts with assessment and treatment where needed at the deepest part of the connective tissue system - the joint capsule. It progresses through all the layers of fascia, ending with the superficial layer. Where the central or peripheral nervous system is restricted or not optimal in movement, proper neural mechanics is restored. Muscles that were inhibited are activated while those that are over activated are normalized. Finally, a home program prescription follows so that the client/patient becomes an active partner on their journey to wellness or sport performance.
This will depend on how comfortable you are with the material after each workshop. The average time is 1 to 2 years.
