Fascial Counterstrain (FCS) is a hands-on technique best mastered by allied health care professionals who have bodywork experience and a solid understanding of human anatomy. Typical students of FCS are physical therapists, massage therapists, osteopaths and similar practitioners. Following a Fascial Counterstrain introductory course, training is structured around the major systems of the body including the musculoskeletal, visceral, lymphatic/venous, arterial and nervous systems. All Fascial Counterstrain training begins with 3-Day Introductory courses which may be followed by 40-hour (typically 5-day) Mastery Level courses.
