We are trained in fascial counterstrain techniques. It is a form of manual therapy that thoroughly treats the body’s pain and movement receptors located within fascia. These receptors can be strained which provokes a protective reflex spasm in nearby muscle/somatic structures. Fascial counterstrain techniques are used to mechanically slacken these strained structures to normalize tone in nerves, muscles, vessels, organs, etc. This leads to improvements in health of the digestive, musculoskeletal, and psychological systems.
