Ann and Chris Frederick, first single handedly and then through a team of incredible teachers, have created a loving community of cheerleaders for FST. Students call the FST Family “friends for life” because of the intense bonding developed over a week of personal and professional transformation we call “The Stretch to Win Experience”. The Fredericks and their team of teachers in the USA and Canada all invite you to be a part of something very special – a global group of professionals with supreme talent, integrity, trust and belief in the power of healing that is FST.
It couldn't be laid out any better… if you asked me what changes I would make to FST I would not change a single thing about FST. From the emails, to the videos, to day one, to the introductions, to the way they break up the groups, to the way you get to talk to different instructors from different backgrounds, to our lunch breaks, to the length of the class, the amount of Hands-On work we do... this is the best learning experience I've ever been a part of.

Between the USA and Canada, our team of incredible teachers have gone through an intense process of vetting and training before they are permitted to teach. This is because STW takes the responsibility of teaching a new paradigm very seriously. FST is first and foremost a hands-on technique, requiring an ability to sense subtleties of tissue response and then appropriate action of the right treatment through synchronous movements of practitioner and client. Our teachers are ready to do all they can for you to have a premium 1-on-1, all hands-on learner centered experience that is unparalleled in the continuing education industry, guaranteed!
I couldn't have asked for a better experience through instructors that are just so detail oriented in just every little detail in every little corner is covered. As I'm learning how to do these techniques, they are right there with their knowledge.

Students soon understand why we call our community the FST Family. From the first day they attend a workshop, they feel safe, at ease and very comfortable. The Fredericks and the teachers foster this atmosphere with a warm and welcoming non-judgmental attitude that focuses on lots of practice, not memorization or perfection. After graduation, our community continues to feel the support of the Institute and their fellow student colleagues with a rich members only access to online education, FAQs, private social media to help each other and much more.
I have gotten so much more knowledge, so much more self-confidence. So many new connections. I've learned so much from not only Mrs. Ann and Mr. Chris and all of the instructors here, but I have learned so much from all of the people in my small group, and outside of my small group. Everyone here just gives advice and gives encouragement and gives support. And there is a network of people that I feel like I could reach out to, not only for advice on if I have a client that I get stuck with, but if something happens to me personally that I need help or comfort or fellowship, I have that after this.
