Specializing in Fascial Counterstrain (FCS)
FCS is a form of hands-on body therapy that is highly effective in treating a wide variety of injuries, painful conditions, and even chronic pain. It is capable of normalizing tone in painful muscles, tendons, ligaments, and other body structures.
Strains of these vital tissues can provoke a protective reflex spasm of the structure involved and any near-by somatic tissue (via reflex-arc). Once triggered the reflex can persist, spread and form palpable tender points. FCS releases the tissue in spasm and the corresponding tender point by mechanically unloading the injured structure.
Dysfunction of this web of vital connective tissue often negatively impacts our physical health, it make us vulnerable to further injury, and can impact our mental and spiritual well-being.
FCS is a gentle, powerful and lasting treatment for dysfunction, spasm and pain.
