Functional
Soft Tissue Transformation

Get “hands-on” with Gray Institute! Comprehensive movement testing and treatment starts with appreciating your patients and clients as individuals. Learn how to identify and resolve dysfunction when treating soft tissue.  

What Are the Benefits of Functional Soft Tissue Transformation?

Functional Soft Tissue Transformation (FSTT) is a comprehensive movement testing and treating process that centers on the individuality of each client. FSTT takes a different approach from traditional structure-based protocols. It is individually context dependent. Structure is respected, yet individual function is the driver of the process.
