Akeisha De Baat

Fascial Stretch Therapist

As a dance professional and educator, I have been working with the body and all that it can
offer and endure for over 17 years. After years of searching for treatments that could
uncover the source of my ‘chronic pains’, I found FST in 2017. I am the first to admit that I
was addicted to the temporary pain of some forms of treatment for years, but once I
understood that perhaps no pain could offer results I’d never seen before, I was/am hooked.
Over the past few years, I have been practicing self-healing through techniques that centre
around trapped emotions in your body which compliments one of the principles in FST’s
(tuning & reprogramming the nervous system). This has been a critical factor in my speedy
recovery and personal leaps in my own personal fitness goals and art form, giving me back
and increasing my range of motion, speed, agility, and strength that I had lost or struggled
with for years.

As a Certified Level 2 Fascial Stretch Therapist (FST) from the Stretch to Win Institute (STWI),
I will assist your body through specific stretches to improve the mobility of your nerves &
increase the flexibility of your muscles and fascia.
