4 Benefits of Fascial Stretch Therapy

Fascia is connective tissue that supports muscles, bones, tendons, ligaments and nerves. Fascial stretching can give you the feeling of deep relaxation and rejuvenation that massage can’t. It has a variety of benefits for your body, the following are a few important ones.

No Pain

Other therapies, like massage and stretching, that focus on injury rehab or breaking up scar tissue can be pretty painful at times. Fascial stretching on the other hand is very gentle and painless. Instead of feeling pain during the stretching process, you might just feel some mild pressure.

Fast Recovery

Fascial stretching improves blood flow to tired muscles and reduces soreness. This helps you recover faster from tough training sessions with less pain than normal. Therefore, fitting in a fascial stretching session in between tough workouts or physical activity can help you bounce back quicker and get back to feeling 100%.

Improved Performance

There’s been studies done that show that fascial stretching can help you run faster, lift more weight, improve coordination and improve flexibility. That being said, if fascial stretching can improve your physical performance overall, why not try it out and fit in a few sessions into your busy schedule.

Injury Rehab

This type of fascia stretching therapy can break up scar tissue and increase range of motion to injured areas. This can help clients recover faster from injuries they might have, which in turn can help them get back to being physically active quicker than normal rehab would take. Fascial stretching therapy can be that powerful for most clients.
