Ann Frederick is a former professional dancer, having grown up in her mother's dance studio, starting to dance at the age of four. She has practiced manual therapy for over 20 years, specifically in the field of flexibility training, focusing on her brand of assisted individual stretching, group stretch and dance instruction. Ann originally created a unique system of neuromyofascial manual therapy called Fascial Stretch Therapy (TM) for the USA Men's Olympic Wrestling Team of 1996. Besides improving professional athletic performance, she soon discovered that FST also rapidly helped other clients with a variety of chronic, unresponsive pain conditions, strength imbalances and other common neuromusculoskeletal disorders. Ann and her husband Chris are both certified by Thomas Myers in Kinesis Myofascial Integration and are the authors of the popular book Stretch to Win. Ann and Chris directed their own highly successful center for Fascial Stretch Therapy, physical therapy/physiotherapy, Structural Integration, chiropractic, acupuncture, sports massage and Pilates for nearly 20 years. They are now Directors of the Stretch to Win Institute at www.stretchtowin.com, where they offer certification training workshops in Fascial Stretch Therapy. Chris Frederick has been a physical therapist/physiotherapist since 1989, focusing on manual therapy - particularly with integration of Fascial Stretch Therapy and Kinesis Myofascial Integration - along with personalized movement prescription to restore function. He has an extensive background in dance, both as a professional dancer of classical ballet, as well as being a practitioner in the specialty of dance physical therapy/physiotherapy. Chris is also well versed in the ancient movement and healing arts of tai chi and qigong. He is a coauthor with Thomas Myers of the chapter on stretching in the seminal book "Fascia: The tensional network of the human body" edited by Robert Schleip, Leon Chaitow et al.
