What is FST

Improve energy and sense of well being
Feel connected through the entire body
Why I use it
As a dance professional and educator I have been working with the body and all that it can offer and endure for over 17 years. After years of searching for treatments that could uncover the source of my 'chronic pains' I found FST in 2017. I am the first to admit that I was addicted to the temporary pain of some forms of treatment for years, but once I understood that perhaps no pain could offer results I'd never seen before, I was/am hooked. FST has been critical factor in my speedy recover and personal leaps in my own personal fitness goals and art form, giving me back and increasing my rang of motion, speed, agility, and strength that I had lost or struggled with for years.
