Fascial Counterstrain (FCS) 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.

Training for FCS is available to allied health care professionals who have bodywork experience and a solid understanding of human anatomy: physical therapists, massage therapists, osteopaths and similar practitioners. Examples of accepted licenses are: PT, PTA, LMT, DC, ND, DO, LAc, MD, OTR/L.

Fascial Counterstrain Training

Following the Fascial Counterstrain introductory course, training is structured around the major systems of the body, including the musculoskeletal, visceral, lymphatic/venous, arterial, and nervous systems. Fascial Counterstrain training proceeds with a combination of 3-Day Introductory Courses which may be followed by 40-hour (typically 5-day) Mastery Level Courses.

Fascial Counterstrain Originator

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.

Exciting news! A recent article titled “Impaired Lymphatic Drainage and Interstitial Inflammatory Stasis in Chronic Musculoskeletal and Idiopathic Pain Syndromes: Exploring a Novel Mechanism” written by Brian Tuckey et al. has been published to Frontiers In Pain Research. Brian and his colleagues–from around the world–have worked long and hard on this research article.

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.
