Introductory Courses

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. All following 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.
