FST is a series of movements created to separate and organize the many connective tissue layers surrounding the muscles, joints, organs, and bones. It incorporates breathing techniques and traction while taking joints to their available pain free ranges. Gentle muscle contraction may also be used to achieve length and decrease tone in muscles. Some of the benefits of FST are: Improved flexibility, improvements in strength, improved balance, improved coordination, improvements in alignment, correction of pelvic rotations and an overall better quality of life.
