A bit about FST …
Fascial Stretch Therapy
Fascial Stretch Therapy(TM) is a unique, complete and complementary system of table-based assisted stretching, focusing on the fascia and joint capsule as the key elements in achieving optimal flexibility, strength, performance and pain relief.
Fascia is a network of layered connective tissue that surrounds muscles, bones and joints. A joint capsule is also a connective tissue structure that surrounds joints and is involved in optimizing the mechanical function of the joint as well as gives it nutrients. When the fascia and joint capsules are restricted it can cause:
- Decreased joint space which can lead to degenerative joint diseases and osteoarthritis
- Increased muscle tone which can lead to trigger points, strains, tendonitis and tears
- Increased nervous tissue tone which can lead to headaches, trigger points and muscle tightness
- Increased scar tissue formation
- Decreased blood flow and energy levels, and much more
- Improved posture
- Reduced risk of injuries
- Releases endorphins which are natural pain suppressants
- Improved strength
- Decreased stress
- Improved athletic performance
- Decreased muscle soreness
- Improved sex, and much more

Nutrition Tips from our own Dietician Leila Shaw RD, RMT
Fall is one of my favourite seasons – it brings with it the fall harvest rich with deep coloured
vegetables. These vegetables nourish us by providing phytonutrients (antioxidants and
vitamins) to protect and support our health. Fall also brings crisp bright days and colder nights
allowing us to tap into cozy times: slippers and hot cocoa fortified with organic mushroom
powder, roasted root vegetable soups and crunchy kale & brussel sprout “Caesar” salads,
stews and apple crisps.
I almost always modify, add, manipulate or tweak recipes, i.e. –
~Nutritional yeast for Parmesan (all or some)
~Coconut aminos instead of soy sauce
~Immediately half the amount of sugar, and replace half of that half with monk fruit or erythritol
~Leeks instead of onion (all or some)
~Silken organic tofu instead of dairy, sometimes instead of coconut milk if I am looking to up the
~Ground flax meal, ground chia (or whole seeds or hemp hearts get added into almost all baking
~Arrowroot instead of corn starch to thicken
~Fava or garbanzo bean flour to thicken gravies
Here are some of my fall favourites “templates” 😉
Instant Pot Creamy Herbed Chicken Stew
Healthy Gluten Free Apple Crisp
