Sports FST training is only available for practitioners who have completed Levels 1-3 of FST. During this five-day program, we’ll integrate all three levels of your training with new assessments and techniques specific to athletic performance, including:
LifeStretch® is a mobility-stretch class designed to help individual clients or group fitness members become more flexible in body, mind, and spirit.
It is unique because the choreography uses self-traction to create space in joints. When traction during inhalation is followed by exhalation during the mobility-stretch sequences, range of motion increases rapidly without discomfort.
While most stretch formats target isolated, single muscles, LifeStretch progresses through entire chains of neuromyofascia. It starts in standing position with a flow that allows the participant to do a self-assessment, then transitions to a mat on the floor. The flow has a logical sequence, mobilizing joints and shorter chains of small muscles and fascia, progressing to longer chains of multiple joints and larger muscles and fascia. Participants are encouraged to explore the spaces in their own bodies with movements that are pain-free and efficient. Unlike many other group classes LifeStretch encourages a non-competitive atmosphere.
LifeStretch is built on the principle that the brain learns movement patterns in multiple planes, not with uniplanar, isolated muscle contractions. It uses the StretchWave™ to move the body in a comfortable undulating and oscillating fashion, breaking through tissue restrictions by synchronizing breath with efficient movement, instead of painful or excessive force.
With regular class participation, attendees will realize gains in mobility and function faster than ever before. Its a self-care program, can be taught as a small group class, or even 1 on 1 with a client.
This is an online course taken at your own pace and no prerequisites required.
Frederick Stretch Therapy® (or FST®) is a non-traditional manual method of balancing the tension and compression properties of the connective tissue system (i.e. fascia) to achieve whole body pain free function and performance in life and in sports (click here for more on FST).
Fascianetics® is the expansion and integration of FST with complementary, reliable and valid methods and techniques that will produce an uncommonly advanced manual therapy and training specialist.
The development and evolution of Fascianetics® starts here with both online and live courses offered to widen and deepen your current skills to close the gaps and improve results in your assessments, treatment and training.
Note: Most courses are restricted to currently certified FST practitioners, while some are open to the general public.
