This is accomplished by learning how to sense the end-feel of connective tissue through advanced multi-planar range of motion challenge tests to the torso, shoulder girdle, upper extremities and spine.After learning how to identify regions of fascial imbalance you will learn how to conduct a complete advanced assisted fascial stretch session.
Building on the foundational skills learned in Level I, Level II gives the practitioner a new comprehensive skill set to address more complicated client problems and patient diagnoses for quicker and better outcomes. For the fit and healthy client, these techniques will take their flexibility, strength and mobility to a whole new level – guaranteed!
For physical therapists and other licensed healthcare practitioners, this level of training will enable you to successfully integrate FST™ into your practice as another advanced manual therapy skill and modality to treat pain and mechanical dysfunction appropriate to your level of skill, training and education.
