FASCIAL STRETCH THERAPY - Brad Kahn


I have now had a few Fascial Stretch Therapy sessions with Brad Kahn. To be honest I was not quite sure what it was before the session, I had an idea, but I didn’t know the benefits. For someone who trains daily, if not twice a day… or sometimes three times... I know it is an addiction. Anyways! For the amount of training that I do, I definitely don’t put as much effort into my recovery. Maybe a few minutes of stretching at the end, and a cold plunge in natures Ice bath, but not as much as I should.


What I am aware of is that I am very flexible, however, that is totally different than being mobile. My mobility could use some work. So that’s why I am seeing Brad!


You can see from just the first session there are already improvements! I am excited to see my progress over an extended period of time.


Brad has spent so much time educating himself in Fascial Stretch Therapy, as much as I like to think I can do everything on my own, I have realized I simply cannot. Nor should I. We have experts for a reason. I cannot move my body on my own, in the same way someone else can. I always say team work makes the dream work! Well this applies to ones health and fitness as well.



WHAT IS IT

  • Pain free, unique, complete, and complementary system of table-based assisted stretching.

  • Focusing on the fascia and joint capsule as the key elements in achieving optimal flexibility, strength, performance, and pain relief.

  • Fascia: a network of layered connective tissue that surrounds your muscles, nerves, bones, organs, and joints; without your fascia, you would fall apart.

  • Joint Capsule: connective tissue structure that surrounds joints and is involved in optimizing the mechanical function of the joint, as well as giving it nutrients.

  • When Fascia & Joint Capsule are restricted:

  • Decrease joint space, leading to degenerative joint diseased and osteoarthritis

  • Increased muscle tone, leading to trigger points, strains, tendonitis, and tears

  • Increased nervous tissue tone, leading to headaches, trigger points, and muscle tightness

  • Increased scar tissue formation

  • Decreased blood flow and energy levels



  • FST is one of the quickest, most effective, and most pleasant methods to eliminate pain, restore function, move and feel better in activities of life, fitness, and sports.

WHY STRETCH FASCIA VS. MUSCLE?
