Welcome to Known also as Soft-stretch Release Techniques, is a unique approach to neuromyofascial release and unwinding of the tissue with a completely gentle, soft, and non-aggressive application. With SRT, our Philosophy is simple, "Hugging Helps Heal" which means that we strive to physically support the body, limbs, and head as much as possible during a therapy session. True healing comes from both ends of the spectrum involving the emotional and energetic connections within the physical body.

Understanding the SRT Philosophy (Five Pillar Foundation) is truly what SRT is all about. These firve pillars consists of the Fascial System, Nervous System, Belief System, Feelings and Emotions, and Neuroplasticity. They are all synergistically interconnected and lay at the very basis of our applications and techniques.


Feelings of pain, trauma, distrust, angst, sadness, anger, depression, loneliness and fear will all cause direct issues within the physical body. We call these emotional splinters and strive to  replace them with higher vibrational frequencies of love, safety, trust, acceptance, and comfort to promote true healing.

"Hugging" the system generates these positive emotions, thus allowing the physical body to respond and then allowing us to guide the body into new ranges of motion, clear nagging restrictions, improve mobility and flexibility, release emotional energy, and so much more. 



Soft-stretch Release Techniques isn't simply about a mechanical approach to the physical body. We believe in continual education of both eastern and western philosophies and how they must work synergistically together to help facilitate "true healing."

For this reason, we offer a variety of live n-person and self-study online clinics to help other Professionals with an understanding and perspective that might be just what they are looking for in their own practice.

Ashly Wenzel and Chris Kalisz are both Healers and Neuromyofascial Specialists who have both had numerous physical injuries and chronic pain that led them to seek a deeper understanding of the mechanical body and how it interacts with the energetic and emotional bodies.


Through their own journey to pain relief and internal healing, they have infused eastern and western modalities with a far softer and more gentle approach. SRT Therapy revolves around "listening to the body" and "hugging the emotional and physical systems" in order for true healing to occur.
