Mastery Program Format

Active participation in this program will help you to overcome the frustrations of treatment plateaus and enable you to engage in the concept of treatment discovery and application. Understanding the underlying treatment concepts instead of simply duplicating what others have figured out is what creates separation between those who are good at Fascial Counterstrain (FCS) and those who are truly great. At the Counterstrain Academy we pride ourselves in putting the student first and by making education and the assimilation of information a priority.
  • Ideal student-instructor ratio
  • Suitable for practitioners of all levels of Fascial Counterstrain
  • Emphasis on the Cranial Scan as developed by Brian Tuckey, PT
  • Focus on clinical application throughout the program
  • Audit program: Stay current by re-taking (auditing) any course at half-price
Immersion: Instruction within the Mastery Program provides a long-term, immersive, learning process that is conducive to truly absorbing the material as it reinforces consistent and continuous improvement.
Spaced Repetition: The weekly class format solidifies FCS concepts and treatment methodology in a small group setting of like-minded practitioners that share the common goal of mastery.
Model: This is a rare opportunity to model the strategies of accomplished practitioners/instructors and receive individualized guidance on your path from introduction to mastery.
