Fascial Counterstrain

Fascial Counterstrain (FCS) is a gentle manual therapy that relaxes the fascia, a connective tissue that can spasm and cause pain in response to injury or other factors. The therapist shortens the strained structure to release the tension and eliminate the pain. This is a powerful method of treatment.
