Q. How long will the consultation be?
A. The consultation will be between 75 and 90 minutes in length, so we can cover everything we need to. Please arrive at least 5 minutes before your scheduled consultation time.
Q. I have had a recent surgery or a medical issue that prohibits me from certain activity. Do I need a doctor’s note?
A. Yes, If you have had recent surgery, we will need a doctor’s note for clearance before we can do anything. If you have a pre-existing medical condition that can be aggravated by movement you will also need to obtain a doctor’s note prior to our session.
Q. What types of clothes should I wear?
A. You can wear any loose-fitting shorts, pants, yoga pants and exercise shirts. Please DO NOT wear skirts, jeans or other types of restrictive clothing. We need you to be wearing clothes that can stretch and flex easily.
Q. Can I come with questions?
A. YES, please do!!
Q. What kind of experience will I have?
A. An enjoyable, stress free and pain-free hour! FST is a stress relieving, and pain-free modality. You will leave more relaxed than when you showed up!
Q. I have a big run or hard effort workout after the first FST session, is that OK?
A. If you have a big effort day planned after your first FST session, it is recommended that you postpone that workout. Each body reacts differently to FST, it is advised that after your first session of FST you drink plenty of water and relax the rest of the day.
After you come a few times for a session, working out after the fact will be no problem!
Q. What can I eat or drink before our session?
A. Try to limit your food intake before our session. You may drink water before FST. You will want to drink plenty of water after the FST session as well.
