Testimonial

"Finding Amanda was the best thing I could have hoped for. From our very first meeting her knowledge and expertise at targeting the source of my pain and having a solution for long term health was the therapy I was looking for. Her techniques and knowledge for stretching and manipulating the body were all new to me — and highly effective. Being able to walk and move again, pain free, that to me is success! I highly recommend Amanda, her professional knowledge and caring spirit are all you could ask for!"

Fascial Stretch Therapy™

Fascial Stretch Therapy™ is an assisted stretching technique performed by a certified FST coach that targets both muscle and fascia. Fascia is the connective tissue that covers the organs to the circulatory system, the brain to the nervous system, including every muscle, tendon, bone, and joint. The interlacing of this fascial net gives the appearance similar to a spider’s web. It holds the structures together and apart, giving space and stability within the body to move freely. FST is designed to relieve the stress and strain placed on muscles and connective tissue as a result of poor posture, repetitive stress injuries, lack of exercise, surgery, and over-training. Being under continual stress, we are affected physically, mentally, and emotionally, causing the tightening and stiffening of the fascia.

Overtime, the inappropriate stress to the fascia leads to dehydration and pain. FST has the ability to relieve discomfort by decreasing compression and impingement in and around the joints. Using this technique to unlock fascial restrictions will help to restore chronic muscle tension. Chronic aches and pains caused by structural misalignment can be eliminated with proper support, education, and awareness.

As your stretch therapist, Amanda, will start the session by getting to know her clients health and fitness history, followed by a postural assessment. She will then begin an array of stretching sequences addressing areas needed based on the clients assessment and personal goals. The experience of FST is relaxing and peaceful for the body, mind, and soul, giving the opportunity for transformation to take place. Amanda’s educational tips, along with take home exercises, will continue the momentum for optimal movement potential.

About Amanda Taylor

Amanda’s extensive Pilates education and teaching experience began in 1992. In 2000, she discovered STOTT PILATES® and became inspired to further her education in the method. She originally opened BodyMind Design, a Licensed Training Center, offering classes and private sessions as well as professional education and certification programs for instructors. Amanda has recently chosen to operate a more intimate studio coaching private sessions only and continues to be a floating STOTT PILATES Instructor Trainer. The studio offers STOTT PILATES training, including other brands from Merrithew such as ZEN•GA, Fascial Movement, and Athletic Conditioning & Performance Training.

Always looking for opportunities to further her career in wellness education, in 2013, Amanda began researching The Anatomy Trains® designed by Tom Myers, where she was introduced to the buzz word “fascia”. Her studies with the neurofascial system and the importance of its integrity and fascial continuities, Amanda earned her certification with Spatial Medicine|CPM™. This method applies fascial integration within the Pilates movement offering a new perspective on injury recovery, rehabilitation, and health and performance enhancement. Following her certification with Spatial Medicine, she continued her Fascial Stretch Therapy training. Amanda, also earned her full certification as a Rossiter Stretch Coach, another dynamic stretch modality. All three methods offer a series of effective movement and stretch techniques for addressing structural pain and restriction of movement.

Amanda appreciates the body’s intelligence and its ability to both reorganize and reprogram old patterns. Her positive encouragement and reinforcement develops an awareness, gaining freedom in movement to balance strength and build confidence from the inside out.
