FST Level 3 is our highest level certification program, placing you in an elite group of fascial stretch specialists all over the world.
Advancing assessment skills is the priority in this course. Developed by physical therapist Chris Frederick, you will gain more accuracy, speed and efficiency in your treatments to ensure you are on the right path for optimal results.
To rapidly release restrictions that inhibit effective stretching, a unique soft tissue technique, is applied to musculotendinous regions and fascial septum interfaces. (Note: it is not massage and students will not learn massage therapy)
Major joints of the body will be assessed for specific capsular restrictions at the deepest level of the connective tissue system. FST at the joint capsule will address many common biomechanical dysfunctions and imbalances that create joint pain, weakness, and functional deficits.
Neural mobility is also assessed and novel techniques for the central and peripheral nervous system are taught. This is often considered to be the missing link for clients with chronic problems.
Finally, you will learn advanced FST techniques that integrate the upper and lower body simultaneously in new and creative ways that truly individualize your approach with each client.
Gaining expertise at this level allows you to access unique opportunities for higher level referrals and positions with sports teams, corporate wellness, medical practices as well as with elite, professional and Olympic athletes.
