Sure, you can play through the pain. But everyone knows that they perform better when things don’t hurt and move freely. By reducing pain and increasing range of motion, Fascial Stretching improves performance for both amateur and professional athletes alike!

Professionals aren’t the only performance athletes anymore. More recently, many of the patients we treat are simply working to improve their own performance. Some are performing regularly in athletic competitions!

Now, we are able to help using simple, easy therapy steps that don’t require much time. After all, you’re already working out.

Who Can Benefit From Fascial Stretching?

  • Runners
  • Golfers
  • Cyclists
  • Swimmers
  • Tennis players
  • Basketball players
  • Baseball/softball players
  • Cross-Fit, HIIT, Martial Arts and Weight Training Enthusiasts

Of course, we’re not physical therapists or athletic trainers. We are myofascial therapists that specialize in optimizing performance through reducing pain, promoting movement and establishing true “core” stability from the inside out.

How Does It Work?

Our fascial stretching method is based on a simple acronym – LSS – Lengthen, Shorten, Stabilize.

First, we LENGTHEN myofascia (muscles and connective tissue) that are too short. Common examples include hamstrings and hip flexors. Tightness reduces stride length and make you more prone to injury.

Then, we SHORTEN myofascia that have been overstretched or weakened. This restores proper tone and function. For instance, weak glutes transfer strain to the spinal erectors and cause low back pain. In addition, overstretched rhomboids impact the kinetic chain of the arm and reduce strength.

Finally, we STABILIZE myofascia that are necessary for functional athletic movement. Observe the importance when trying to “cut” laterally in almost any sport. It is necessary for the quadratus lumborum to stabilize the connection between the hips, spine and ribs. This transfers force safely and effectively to the legs.

We can help you develop true core stability, which is the foundation for pain-free, flexible movement in any physical activity.

Seriously, if you are looking for massage therapy that actually does your body good–that changes its function for the better and actually makes pain go away–then this is the place you need to come. Not Massage Envy. Not a chiropractor. You need trigger point from knowledgeable experts in the craft.
