Fascial Counterstrain: Arterial
Counterstrain AR explores the newly discovered entity of arterial-fascial dysfunction. This condition, indentified by the presence of specific arterial tender points, is essentially a vasospasm of the large, named arteries of the body. symptoms examples include: Myalgia, achilles tendonitis, epicondylitis, migraines, pseudoradiculopathies, LBP, cervicalgia, Adhesive Capsulitis, Patellafemoral dysfunction, TMD, etc. Treatment of Arterial dysfunction using SCS normalizes elevated vascular tone, and alleviates all associated musculoskeletal symptoms.

Origin of Arterial Counterstrain
Anatomy and Physiology of the Arterial System
Review the anatomy and physiology of arterial fascia (tunica adventitia) and its nociceptive and mechanoreceptive properties.
Understand how nocifensive and nociautonomic reflexes lead to the formation of arterial tender points.
gain proficiency on over 85 newly developed SCS techinques to correct arterial-fascial dysfunction in all parts of the body.
