fascial stretch therapy
Fascial Stretch Therapy (FST) is a form of bodywork that is a dynamic and effective way to care for your body. It targets fascia, the most prevalent connective tissue in the body, and supports every aspect of movement — muscles, tendons, organs, ligaments, and nerves. Kelsey is a level 3 Fascial Stretch Therapist and has worked with countless high-profile professional athletes and teams throughout the years.
Kelsey’s approach to teaching barre focuses on combining both full range-of-motion and isometric movements that target the entire body. Her barre classes increase strength, stability and heart rate. Movement sequences are frequently set to the beat of music where she incorporates her prolific playlists into each class.
