What is fascial counterstrain? Well I'm glad you asked!
Fascial Counterstrain (FCS) is a skilled, passive manipulation of the body's fascia with the goal of normalizing associated painful responses and painful reflexes. It is a treatment that identifies and removes trapped inflammation from all tissues of the body.
The observable effects are decreased perception of pain, decreased inflammation, improved flexibility, improved proprioception, normalization of muscle tone and improved functional performance.
Every organ, nerve, artery, muscle, ligament, tendon, vein and lymphatic vessel in the human body is covered in layers of fascia which can reflexively contract, causing trapped inflammation. A gentle scan will identify locations of inflammation and the therapist can begin to release the layers of affected tissue, much like peeling back layers of an onion.
FCS works to release the tissue in spasm and the corresponding tender point by gently unloading the injured structure. The unloading releases trapped inflammation and results in a deep release which is hard to achieve in traditional therapies. As one layer is released it may reveal a deeper, more dominant cause.
All of our massage sessions are therapeutic-based treatments with techniques specifically customized to meet your needs.
These techniques were acquired through training and experience in a variety of methods for recovery, rehabilitation, muscle relief and tissue repair. Whether you need gentle, deep tissue, cupping, or stretching will be determined by you and your therapist at each session.
Combining these techniques provides consistent and beneficial experience with every visit.

Assisted Stretch Therapy
An often overlooked and undervalued skilled therapy is assisted stretching.
Incorporated in a massage or used alone, stretching improves your performance in physical activities, decreases your risk of injuries, helps your joints move through their full range of motion, increases blood flow of the muscles, enables your muscles to work most effectively, improving your balance and your ability to do perform daily activities.
Receiving assisted stretching can help you address target areas that allows you to reach a range of motion that may not be available to you on your own.
Decrease pain and stiffness, increase flexibility and range of motion and helps reduce stress!
