Fascial Stretching

We now offer fascial stretching. Fascial stretching is not necessarily a form of massage but is a very effective way to increase flexibility through both active and passive stretching. This means you take an active part in the treatments sessions by contracting certain muscles while the therapist applies pressure to help stretch opposing muscles.

 The therapist will move your limbs of torso as you actively make muscle contraction to stretch tight muscles. We will use belts and pillows to anchor you down so that we can apply a firm stretch on your body tissues. This type of stretching massage helps to creat heat and friction in your muscles and helps to free up adhesions in the connective tissue that surrounds the muscles.

Benefits of Fascial Stretching

How can it help?

Fascial stretching is is particularly useful for increasing flexibility. If you feel that your sport or your job is causing you to develop tight muscles this type of treatment is for you.

Poor flexibility can lead to plantar fasciitis (foot pain), tight calves and hamstrings that affect you being able to squat and bend ( as well as contribute to lower back pain), as well as lead to tight neck and shoulders and tension headaches.

Who can it help?

Fascial stretching is now being used extensively in professional sports such as the NFL, Premier League Football and Basketball to prepare athletes for training and games.

It is also very useful for office workers who spend long hours sat at a desk and who develop tight muscles scubas as the hamstrings at the back of the thigh.

I could not recommend Wandsworth physiotherapy more highly. Both Steve and Sid were invaluable to my marathon preparation and because they offer a wide range of services including physiotherapy, acupuncture and sports massage they are able to treat people in numerous ways to get the best results.

These guys are fantastic! Really quick to reply and they found me an appointment on the same day. I've since had regular treatments with Alessio who is excellent, and my torn IT band, shoulder and other ailments are much improved. Brilliant for both sports injuries and wellness.

Gerry Sweetland

Booked an appointment for the same day on a Saturday. Adele has been very welcoming and helpful, providing useful advice as well as efficient treatment. Great local clinic, will definitely come back and recommend.

Jean Reverdy

Great Physio. Adele is very knowledgeable and helpful. She knew exactly where the pain was and was able to fix it. Everyone is very friendly. It's definitely worth a visit if you have any sort of pain!

Rebecca Nakhle

I've been several times for several different problems and Steve has always been excellent. He listens really carefully and asks good questions to find out exactly what's wrong, and is very clear with follow-up exercises to continue the therapy at home. Highly recommend him!
