FAST Therapy is a comprehensive approach designed to help an individual maintain balance and well-being. The human body is a beautifully complex entity whose function is affected by mental, emotional, and physical factors. All three factors need to be considered in order to achieve and maintain optimal health and wellness.
During the lecture the latest research on fascia, Biotensegrity, and their importance will be discussed. The concepts of understanding the Who, What, and How of each client are introduced and treatments presented.
The manual portion of FAST Therapy is rooted in the principles of AIS: an intricate, dynamic form of stretching based in the fundamental actions of joints, ligaments, and muscles that help the body to become more efficient via increased ROM, and muscular re-education.
FAST Therapy takes AIS one step further by addressing the fact that you cannot maintain flexibility without stabilizing the whole person. Once the muscles and surrounding fascia has been released with AIS, the body-mind complex needs to be re-trained to function in its renewed state. This is accomplished by assisting the individual to become aware of the changes that have come about during body mechanic re-education and strength training, and the myriad ways the changes will manifest in their Activities of Daily Living (ADL).
As greater flexibility and strength are achieved an individual can maintain structural and functional balance, leading to increased stamina and improved health. By combining AIS, strength training, and awareness of the mental/emotional changes created as the individual leaves a state of ‘Dis-Ease”, FAST Therapy practitioners can help to restore an individual’s overall wellness and empower their health.
