About Fascial Stretch Therapy (FST):
Fascial Stretch Therapy™ (FST™) is a unique stretching system designed to not only aid flexibility, but relieve pain and soreness, as well as loosening through the joint capsule.
Fascia is the connective tissue that weaves it way through all the structures of the body. The fascia can thicken & shorten if your tissues are under stress from poor posture, lack of exercise, injury, surgery, disease or over-training.
There are other treatments that can help these conditions, but FST™ is the only proven solution to treat un-flexible fascia throughout the levels and into the joint. Once your fascia has become more hydrated and pliable, your flexibility, range of motion and muscular strength will improve dramatically. Aiding your training and maintenance of your flexibility.
Dave is able to design a program for you, that can create long term flexibility gains as well as pre/ post performance physical preparation. The beauty of FST is that there is no need for pain in the stretch to achieve the desired results.
The FAT tool was developed by Dr. Mark Scappiticci, The technique uses the FAT tool to remove fascial adhesions through different forms of stroke and has been very effective so far for my clients.
Kinesio Tape has been used for 30years having been produced by Dr. Kenzo Kase. This taping method is able to inhibit or activate muscles, as well as helping improve form and function of muscles. The tape can help space correction, as well as fascial correction too.
Both methods very much aid FST, and are good editions to Dave's armoury.

"Dave and the stretch therapy sessions helped immensely throughout a tough pre - season with Bath Rugby.
He quickly recognised issues that i had and helped with my mobility.
When you are competing all week physically and trying to shine before the season begins, recovering being ready to push yourself again the next day is essential. Dave's sessions certainly helped me with that."
Guy Mercer, Bath Rugby
"Using Dave Copeland stretch therapy for the last six weeks on a home visit basis. I am 47 and working as a head chef in Bath. Since having these sessions with Dave, my daily work has had a dramatical change for the better. My movement around the kitchen has been made easier, my aches and pains of long shift has decreased considerably, my sleep patern is now family friendly and my stress levels have dropped. He has also performed fascial stretch therapy on my 10 year old son who has autistic aspergers syndrome. He is considerably calmer after his session, and able to sleep quicker at bedtime. I would highly recommend dave copelands sessions to anyone not just keen sports people. "
