What is fascial stretch therapy?
FST is a type of stretching that targets not only the muscles, but the fascia, the connective tissue that surrounds muscles, bones, and joints. FST uses joint traction, deep breathing and body reflexes to achieve flexibility and range of motion gains quickly and without pain.  A therapist will gently pull and move the arms, legs, spine, and neck in a smooth motion through varying planes of movement. 

FST is great for everyone, not just athletes.  It is for everyone wanting to improve a sprint, squat or jump or someone looking to improve everyday tasks like tying shoes or walking up stairs. 
What is cupping therapy?
​Cupping is an ancient medical treatment still regularly used in traditional Chinese medicine.


Suction cups of varying sizes are attached to the body, and the suction draws blood to the surface of the skin. 
The treatment is said to improve blood circulation, thereby speeding up healing, reducing pain and easing muscle soreness.
