Fascial Counterstrain (FCS) is a hands-on method designed to release spasm in all tissues of the body. Every organ, nerve, artery, muscle, ligament, tendon, vein and lymphatic vessel in the human body can actively spasm and produce pain as a natural protective response to injury. Once this reflex spasm is triggered it can persist, spread and form a significant amount of tender points. Fasical Counterstrain works to release the tissue in spasm and the corresponding tender point by therapeutically releasing the injured structure. By positioning the body against the strain or by applying a “counterstrain”, the structure relaxes, thus reducing tension and alleviating the primary source of pain.
