What is STR?

Soft Tissue Release (STR) is a dynamic, highly effective technique that has an immediate and powerful effect on muscle and connective tissue. STR is a combination of Myofascial Release, Therapeutic Massage, and Active Assisted Stretching. The technique involves applying precise pressure during a specific stretch performed in multiple planes of movement.

Jim is a very thorough and interring instructor. He’s patient and always willing to entertain any questions, comments or concerns. The fact that he has a great sense of humour really adds to the workshop. I would highly recommend the worship. You learn a lot and have fun doing it!”

I just wanted to thank you for an incredible workshop. I have never been so engaged, for so many hours before. I loved working with so many different professionals; the sharing of intellectual property was invaluable. I have already begun to incorporate STR into my treatments with wonderful results, and my clients are happy to participate. So thank you again and I look forward to the advanced workshop! Best;

Assistant Athletic Therapist, Toronto Maple Leafs

I can’t speak highly enough about my experience with Jim. Our initial conversation involved discussing how to adapt STR to the needs of our department. Jim was incredibly flexible with his schedule and was able to create a bespoke offering of STR. From our very first session together, Jim’s mastery of the material was obvious. First and foremost, he is a phenomenal teacher. I was able to very easily apply the technique with the athletes I work with right away. I highly recommend STR to any practitioner working in high performance.
