Facts about Fascial Stretch
"Your fascia reacts to all stress-physical, mental and emotional- by tightening & stiffening. Since fascia covers everything from all of your organs to the circulatory system to the brain & nervous system to the musculoskeletal system and more, your whole body is at risk to react to the stress by tightening and stiffening.When your fascia is left unattended to, aging of the body, mind & spirit accelerates, function decreases & quality of life deteriorates." -Ann and Chris Frederick, Creators of FST™
Facts about Fascia

• The health and function of all joints & muscles are a direct result of the condition of your fascia.
