Fascial Counterstrain: Visceral

Course Description:


Counterstrain VC participants will learn approximately 65, newly developed techniques that alleviate abnormal soft tissue tension in the peritoneal cavity, pelvic cavity, thorax, visceral vascular system and associated fascia. These techniques will address viscerospasm, and hypertonicity of the visceral ligaments and vasculature which are responsible for many common complaints such as cervical pain, lumbar pain, sciatica, medio-scapular pain, and irritable bowel syndrome, gerd and more. Newly published research regarding the sensory and contractile properties of fascia and fascial proprioceptors will be reviewed as a physiological rationale.


Prerequisite: FCS FI or JCS I or JCS II

Contact Hours: 20
