Fascial Stretch Therapy is a science-based therapeutic modality to help you move better, feel better, and perform better.
C9S specializes in integrating customized Fascial Stretch Therapy programming into your current wellness routine.
When we return to our body's natural state of harmony, we are able to live, move, and flow freely - absent of pain, restrictions and compensations. Our therapists empower clients to find this balance and harmony within, and to experience individual wholeness - physically, mentally, emotionally, and spiritually.
It is only then that we may raise our collective frequency.
It’s more than just a stretch.
- Melanie Buelow, Founder

FUNCTION & FLOW (NMFF)
Our unique Function & Flow program is a specialized modality for assessing and correcting structural, neuromuscular, and energetic imbalances in the body. We use muscle response testing to find where the problem is and correct it to restore balance to the client, so they can function efficiently and without pain
This program helps our clients restore their natural state of mind-body-soul harmony, so that they will live, move, and flow freely, absent of pain, restrictions, and compensation.
This approach involves identifying and shifting "stuck" movement patterns, thoughts, and emotions in the body, to improve the flow of frequencies through its energy centers. This locating and removing of resistance, and arrival at energetic flow, often results in the clients most balanced state of mind-body-soul being, moving, and becoming.
Ideal for the individual looking to restore energetic balance and alignment of the mind, body, and soul.
