Hey my name is Jo Bloemberg and I own a Distribution company in both Oakville and Calgary as well as a business Operations consultant in the GTA and surrounding area. I enjoy being a very active person, working out 4-5 days a week plus mountain biking, golf and yoga. I have been living with arthritis in my lower back and hips for the last few years an have tried many treatments including medicine, massage treatments, topical pain relief etc. and have not had any success relieving the constant pain while still trying to remain active.
When Rob began educating us on what FST is and what it can do for you, I thought this may be something to consider. After discussing FST with my Chiropractor, who supported this method, I decided to give it a try. After my first session, I felt pretty sore, like I had just done a MAJOR workout, but amazingly the next day my back and hips felt loose, and relatively pain free! We decided to do 3-4 sessions within a few days apart, in conjunction with Chiropractic treatments and after 2 weeks I noticed a significant difference, My range of motion increased, my fatigue decreased as I wasn’t straining or experiencing the pain I had in the past. I am now on a monthly “maintenance” program with both FST and Chiropractic care. I now feel like I am in the best physical and mental shape and can work out at my maximum level.
I would totally recommend this to anyone who suffers from the same type of arthritis, joint pain or in need of deep stretching as living relatively pain free without taking constant pain relievers has been a huge game changer!
I starting training in May 2016 because I was out of shape had low energy and knee issues Thanks to Rob Nayyar I am on track to run a ½ marathon in September. Totally exceeded my expectations. Now 15lbs lighter and stronger than ever, I will cross that finish line. Mentally and physically I have never felt better.
"Late but worth it".
I’m really impressed with the results I’ve seen with Rob and his FST practice thus far. As an athlete, I try my best to mobilize and be aware of weak links and inhibited ranges of motions in my body but am not always adept at fixing the issues at the root. I noticed an immediate improvement in range of motion after my first treatment with Rob and then several days later went on to PR both my clean and jerk and my snatch. Having the confidence to know that my body is in the exact position it needs to be in to lift and catch a maximal load safely and efficiently is crucial to my sport and I know I can achieve this with Rob and his FST practice.
I am a paediatric oncology nurse at the hospital for Sickkids part time and a full time mom juggling multiple schedules. I spent most of my time growing up training as a pairs figure skater and my current workouts include muscle strength and endurance classes 5-6 times a week. This lifestyle has put and continues to put stress and strain on my joints and muscles and overtime has created some chronic pain. I started FST sessions about 5 months ago for chronic low back pain, hip and shoulder pain and tightness.
Fascial Stretch Therapy has been an excellent treatment for me because it has released tight muscle groups in my low back and hips and reduced the chronic pain I was experiencing allowing improved range of motion, posture and form during my workouts. After my first session I experienced a noticeable difference in range of motion and flexibility. During subsequent sessions of FST, tightness and pain started to diminish. 5 months later FST has reduced this chronic tightness and pain significantly and now I use these sessions as a preventative treatment to avoid future injury and chronic stiffness in muscles and joints which also allows for optimal workout sessions.
I would recommend FST to anyone who is experiencing joint pain and tightness, injury recovery or for injury prevention. Individuals training for marathons, triathlons etc.. or setting intense workout goals would also benefit greatly from FST sessions!
My name is Judy and I'm a landscape designer. I tried FST the first time to see what difference it could make to an existing hip injury. At the time I had pain in the injured hip and significant tightness. After the first treatment, I already had improved mobility in my injured hip (and in other major joints). After a series of 5 FST sessions, my overall stiffness and soreness decreased and my joints had increased mobility and no pain. I traveled 8 hours in a plane with no neck or back issues. Now, FST helps to maintain mobility and decrease the 'computer shoulders' while drafting on CAD. I would recommend FST to everyone from couch potatoes to highly active individuals.
