What we do!
WHAT IS STRETCH THERAPY
Fascial Stretch Therapy™ is a pain-free, 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. FST™ is one of the quickest, most effective, and most pleasant methods to eliminate pain, restore function, move, and feel better in activities of life, fitness, and sports!
WHEN FASCIAL AND JOINT CAPSULES ARE RESTRICTED, IT CAN CAUSE:
- Decreased joint space, leading to degenerative joint diseases and osteoarthritis
- Increased muscle tone, leading to trigger points, strains, tendonitis, and tears
- Increased nervous tissue tone, leading to headaches, trigger points, and muscle tightness
- Increased scar tissue formation
Decreased blood flow and energy levels and much more…
Chantel’s health journey began when she entered the military. She was over-weight and knew absolutely nothing about health or fitness. It took motivation from a great leader that pushed her to adapt. Once she became a Non-Commissioned Officer her love for helping others came by training her soldiers. To gain more knowledge, in 2012-2013, she got her first personal training certification in her free time in Afghanistan. As a civilian, she earned her credentials as a Master Certified Personal Trainer and Exercise Therapist, as well as a degree in Kinesiology. Chantel’s education and military background has helped her tremendously in expanding even further and growing her company into an all-encompassing body rehabilitation facility. She decided to expand after getting to the point as a solo business that she was booked 6 weeks out with a waiting list of 40 people and having to cut off new clientele.
We asked her what she does in her free time?
“What free time?… Ha ha, just kidding (kind of). As a mother of three, my business and family take most of my time. I do enjoy my gym time, hiking and hosting get togethers at my house when the opportunity arises.”
What is your why?
“My why is my daughter. She has seen me struggle from the bottom as a teen mom. She has seen me fight to where I am. My goal is to show her every day that it is never too late to find your passion and do something big. I want her to be able to look at me and know she can do anything she sets her mind to.”
Goals for the future?
For now, my goal is to simply grow my business to help as many local people as possible. Further expansion is always a possibility, to create an environment we provide a well-rounded therapy under one roof. Today, I prefer to focus on my present and make every day count.
