GST MOVEMENT MEDICINE ™
THE PAIN GAME
Pain is so common that we think it’s normal. We live with how it expresses itself through our bodies in chronic conditions, IBS, back issues, vertigo, depression, fibromyalgia, you name it. We’re struggling in pained and injured bodies, but we seek relief and rehabilitation in a system backlogged with outdated perspectives and protocols ineffective in significantly addressing body pain and pathology.
FEEL YOUR FASCIA
Our fascia is screaming at us to pay attention. It wants us to move, to glide, to swing, to play, to roll, to experience real movement, but it’s crippled by too much repetitive potent force in our daily lives.
What we need is movement medicine.
Instead of the modalities that teach us to limit motion and focus on using muscles to create stability, we can listen to fascia start speaking the opposite: “If you move me, we can get unblocked, start flowing and finally start healing.” With specific and focused motion using fluid dynamics, we can feed our fascia the vital nutrients it needs to be soft and supple. Since our fascia has three times as many sensory receptors as all of our other tissues, it’s what’s feeling our pain more than anything, so it’s time we give it both ears.
THE LAUNDRY LIST
GST Movement Medicine can help if you’re experiencing anything from:
– Chronic body pain (lower back, knees, neck and shoulders, headaches, etc…)
– Back or spine issues like disk bulges or herniation
– Any kind of nerve pain
– Chronic tightness
– Injury or surgery-related issues: scar tissue, therapy or rehab.
– Autoimmune complications
THE CLASS & PROGRAM
The GST Movement Medicine class and program is a great starting off point for fascia conditioning as it lays the foundation for healing. It’s slow and deep, like satisfying physical therapy, but isn’t built on exercises for specific complaints. We teach you how to move your fascia by focusing on the somatics and function of micro-activity in tissues through physiology and motion.
PRACTICE GST MOVEMENT MEDICINE
“I started my GST journey 90 days ago because of excruciating back pain from disc bulges in my lumbar spine that had debilitated me for over a year. Not only was the pain relieved within a week, GST has transformed the way I hold and move my body, the way I stand, sit, walk and work out. I have a different body today.”

“Anna is a lifesaver. I’ve had chronic back problems for most of my adult life. After trying (and not being satisfied with) many other conservative forms of therapy including physical therapy, chiropractic, acupuncture, etc., I had resigned myself to living a life of pain. Then I met “the lifesaver.” After just a few sessions, I started feeling a noticeable difference. Now, I feel like the “pre-pain” me. I no longer fear throwing my back out.”
