About the Author

Chris Frederick has been a physiotherapist for over 24 years, focusing on manual therapy - particularly FST and Kinesis Myofascial Integration - along with movement prescription. He has an extensive background in dance, both as a professional dancer of classical ballet, as well as in the specialty of dance physiotherapy. Chris is also well versed in the ancient movement and healing arts of tai chi and qigong. He is a coauthor with Tom Myers of the chapter on stretching in the seminal book Fascia: the tensional network of the human body edited by Robert Schleip et al. Chris and his wife Ann are both certified by Thomas Myers in Kinesis Myofascial Integration and are the authors of the popular book Stretch to Win. Chris and Ann directed their own highly successful center for Fascial Stretch Therapy, physiotherapy, Kinesis Myofascial Integration, sports massage and Pilates for over 17 years. They are now Directors of the Stretch to Win Institute, where they offer certification training workshops in FST. Ann Frederick is a former professional dancer, having grown up in her Mom's dance studio, starting to dance at the age of 4. She has practiced manual therapy for over 20 years, specifically in the field of flexibility training, focusing on assisted individual stretching, group stretch and dance instruction. Ann originally created a unique system of neuromyofascial manual therapy called Fascial Stretch Therapy(t) 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.
