Fascial Stretch Therapy
Here at RENEW You, each session includes Fascial Stretch Therapy (FST). FST is assisted stretching by an FST-certified therapist. Fascia is connective tissue throughout the body. When it’s not in ideal condition, you may experience pain and restricted movement. FST increases range of motion for better, pain-free mobility.
Because the practice at RENEW You focuses on athletes and those who are recovering from injuries and surgery, Fascial Stretch Therapy is a key part of our success. Here’s more.
Why is fascia so important?
Fascia is connective tissue that wraps and supports muscles, bones, tendons, ligaments, organs and nerves—pretty much everything. When the fascia isn’t in ideal condition, you may experience pain, stiffness and restricted movement.

What happens during FST?
A certified FST therapist will gently stretch you in ways you simply cannot do on your own. And it’s pain free. FST works deep into the body, moving joints and surrounding tissue to relax the fascia and restore it to its ideal condition.
Why is FST important?
FST helps increase flexibility. You’ll be less likely to become injured and less likely to feel achy or sore. And if you do get injured, FST helps you recover more quickly. Science shows FST is vital for best results in pain management, rehabilitation and training.
Who can benefit?
Everyone. Everyone can benefit from Fascial Stretch Therapy. However, it’s especially important for 2 groups: athletes who rely on flexibility, and those recovering from injuries or surgery, since flexibility is a key component of restoring the body back to full health.
Athletes, Listen Up
FST can be a game changer in the way you recover and heal your body as you train. It improves blood flow to tired muscles, which helps you recover faster from training with less soreness. And a fuller range of motion means improved performance.

In addition to the Facscial Stretch Therapy you receive with your massage, RENEW You offers LifeStretch classes in which participants do the stretches themselves. Karrie Miller, RENEW You owner, is a certified instructor in LifeStretch.
LifeStretch is based on Fascial Stretch Therapy. It’s designed to help people become more flexible in body, mind and spirit. Similar to the assisted stretching of FST, LifeStretch results in greater mobility and increased capability of dealing with the physical and mental demands of life. The classes focus on each individual’s abilities and the best way to move and function for them.
LifeStretch classes are $15 for a 60-minute class. Please contact us to learn more.
