The primary focus of the bodywork that Patrick will provide will be Fascial Stretch Therapy, also known as FST. Fascial Stretch Therapy is an assisted stretching program that has been thoroughly researched and designed to address the fascia of your body. It is performed on a massage table, using stabilization straps to hold limbs in place, giving the therapist better control and leverage when performing the stretches. You will able to relax and let your fascia stretch and unwind.


Additional therapeutic techniques that will be incorporated as needed to help give you the best and most individualized treatment are Myofascial Release and Neuromuscular Therapy.

Myofascial Release is a manual therapy that addresses the myofascia of your body. This will release myofascia tissue that is shortened and lacking mobility. These techniques are performed directly to dry skin on a massage table.

Neuromuscular Therapy is a manual therapy that precisely treats the body’s soft tissue. This is an excellent technique for tendinitis injuries, breaking up scar tissue, adhesion’s, and common muscle strain. This is also performed on massage table and can be done over clothes.

Appointments are available on Tuesdays, Thursdays, and Saturdays. and will be one hour, start to finish. They will be booked every hour on the hour so we kindly request that you come early if you need time to change so that it does not cut in to your treatment time. Yoga attire is suggested.
