Fascial Counterstrain for Healthcare Professionals

Fascial Counterstrain is a cutting-edge, hands-on approach for the assessment, identification and correction of one of the most common sources of pain and dysfunction in the human body.

FASCIAL COUNTERSTRAIN TECHNIQUE

Brian Tuckey, PT, OCS, JSCCI Founder and Creator of Fascial Counterstrain™

Creator and developer of Fascial Counterstrain (FCS), Brian Tuckey, PT, JSCCI has personally innovated well over 600 FCS techniques. Brian was the first practitioner to recognize that FCS was impacting the body’s deep fascial system and developed the current physiological rationale for FCS.

Read the full scientifically referenced FCS rationale and case study here  “A New Rationale and Treatment Model for Neuromuscular Tender Points” [PDF] by Brian Tuckey PT, Jay P. Shah MD, Hannah Tandon BA.

Fascial Counterstrain is unique in its ability to impact and treat all of the body’s fascial systems including the vascular, visceral, nervous & musculoskeletal systems.

This multi-system approach is exceptional in the world of manipulation giving it unparalleled diagnostic and curative capacity. Fascial Counterstrain is currently being taught to a rapidly expanding audience of domestic and international medical professionals.

WHAT IS FASCIAL COUNTERSTRAIN?

As a Healthcare Practitioner, you may be curious about Fascial Counterstrain (FCS) in relation to patients who have received treatment or perhaps you are interested in learning how you can incorporate FCS into your own practice. This video is aimed at those who have a healthcare background and are interested in a detailed, anatomical explanation of the FCS technique.

FASCIAL COUNTERSTRAIN DEMONSTRATION FOR POTS CONDITION

Patients with POTS, Postural Orthostatic Tachycardia Syndrome, experience unusually high heart rates when moving from a lying down to standing position. Fascial Counterstrain treatment releases dysfunction associated with the autonomic nervous system and thus reduces symptoms as evidenced using a heart rate monitor during this demonstration.

PRACTITIONER: STUDENT OF FASCIAL COUNTERSTRAIN

Our students, allied health care professionals, are determined to change lives, not just symptoms. Practitioners who include Fascial Counterstrain treatment are able to facilitate long lasting relief by treating the cause of dysfunction.
