I stumbled across a stretch therapist while searching for relief from severe mid back back from an injury I had in college, I had a nearly 500 lb patient fall on top of me during a bed transfer gone wrong. I knew that my body responded well to stretching and as much as I tried to stretch on my own I just couldn't get on top of the increasing pain. I was fortunate over the years to never had pain from the injury - just stiffness and tightness. However as time went on, it turned into mild pain - which then turned into severe pain - and then finally the inability to sit or stand for short periods and even preventing me from sleeping through the night. I had seen many PT’s and Chiropractors - and the pain was only temporarily relieved - if at all. And being a PTA myself I KNEW all the right and correct ways to stretch, exercise and relieve pain.
After my first session with the stretch therapist - I had no pain and slept through the whole night for the first time in months without sleeping aids.
I inquired more with my stretch therapist and he explained more about the fascial technique used. I was so impressed by the immediate results, I decided I HAD to become a fascial stretch therapist (FST™) and signed up the next month to begin my journey as a Certified Fascial Stretch Therapist.
I already had over 23 years experience in healthcare and fitness. I started out as a massage therapist which helped pay my way through college and gave me a good foundation for using my hands in the world of physical therapy and manual therapy. My thirst for being the best I could be lead me to being a a certified master level personal trainer and a certified senior fitness instructor and a certified nutritionist. And as a Licensed Physical Therapist Assistant, and a PT clinic owner/founder, with all this background, experience, training, mentor-ship by other PT’s and other continuing education I have had, I thought I knew a lot about manual therapy, stretching, the impact of fascia on our bodies, importance of flexibility and its impact on functional mobility, pain management, etc.
