Fascial Stretch Therapy
Developed by Chris and Ann Frederick, Fascial Stretch Therapy is a specialized type of therapy that promotes pain free gains in range of motion. FST combines treating the muscle fascia while engaging the nervous system to reduce pain, improve movement and restore function to the body.

Acupuncture, from a physiotherapy standpoint, is a modality that can help with recovery from an injury. By using points along meridians in the body, acupuncture stimulates Qi (energy) circulation, and therefore bloodflow, throughout the body. It releases naturally occurring optiates in the body, having an analgesic effect. It also has an anti-inflammatory effect, by way of reduced swelling and tenderness and improved range of motion. Additionally, it helps promote emotional balancing, as well as stimulate homeostatic mechanisms (ie. Regulating blood pressure, release of hormones, etc).
