Fascial stretch therapy consultation and first treatment
Of course, as with any treatment, there are limitations. The first step is sitting down with an expert and making sure that the treatment is right for you and your needs.
On a general basis, many people do not know where to start when it comes to fascial stretch therapy. In order to assist these clients to the best of our ability, we encourage them to book an initial session wherein we can provide an introductory stretch and discuss proper treatment plans to get them performing to the best of their abilities.If you would like more information on how you can learn more, contact us at 403-764-1400.
What is fascia?
Before getting to understand the treatment, let’s gain a little understanding on the primary target of the therapy: the fascia. Muscles are all covered by connective tissue, called fascia, which is primarily composed of collagen fibers. It’s purpose is to attach, stabilize, enclose, and separate muscles and other internal organs.
As the fascia covers muscles, the flexibility of the fascia can greatly affect movement, recovery, flexibility, and mobile performance in general. If the fascia is tight and unrelenting, it will affect the output of the underlying muscle.
Who can benefit from fascial stretch therapy?
This therapy is designed to benefit clients that are looking to attain more flexibility and mobility, reduce their recovery time after training and exercise, and recover from and reduce injury.
Fascial stretch therapy can help a wide variety of clientele. By allowing for an increase in blood flow, athletes and gym-goers may see a noticeable decrease in their recovery time, allowing them to perform at their best more often.
Our Calgary clients suffering from chronic pain or injuries may also see some benefit from seeing one of our fascial stretch specialists, as the therapy can help in breaking down scar tissue and reducing muscle and joint pain.
This method of therapy is also beneficial to any clients that may need more flexibility, such as labourers, office workers, or anybody that feels that their overall stiffness needs to be addressed.
What are the benefits of fascial stretch therapy?
- Increase in blood flow to heighten recovery rates
- Better posture
- Increase in endurance and strength
- Reduction in tension and injury risk
- Reduction in soreness and fatigue
- Increase in flexibility
- Reduction in chronic pain
None of the above benefits are guaranteed. Each individual that walks into our building has unique needs, and they should aim to book an appointment to consider treatment methods that are suitable for their requirements.
