Fascial Counterstrain is a Gentle ‘Hands-On’ Therapy for Treatment of Pain
While traditional therapies focus on muscles, tendons, bones, and ligaments, Fascial Counterstrain looks at the whole body including the lymphatic system, nerves, organs, arteries, veins, discs, and more.
Our clinic has massage and physical therapists who have both chosen to break away from the standard treatment model in order to provide you with dramatically better results. As one of our clients said after their fascial counterstrain treatment
“You get real results, and because it works, you feel better quicker”
This class-leading therapy is called Fascial Counterstrain Therapy.
While traditional therapies focus on muscles, tendons, bones, and ligaments, Fascial Counterstrain Therapy helps the whole body. This is because it can target and treat all the different types of fascia in every part of the body, including your nerves, organs, arteries, veins, lymphatic system, muscles, discs, and more.
If you are unfamiliar with the importance of fascia, what it is, or whether treating it can help you, we recommend that you give us a call. Or you can leave us an email and we can organize a 20 min discovery conversation together. In this discovery call, you can tell our therapists what’s going on and how you feel.
At our clinic, our 30+ years of combined experience as massage and physical therapists have shown us that the best way you can help many common and hard-to-treat conditions is to address your body’s fascia – even if you haven’t been helped by seeing a doctor, chiropractor, massage or physical therapist.
This is because many times, your injury or condition can have a larger footprint than you know. Injury isn’t just isolated to problems in bones, joints, ligaments, tendons and muscles; it can occur in any other part and tissue of the body. Often these other tissues also require their own specific therapy. For example, did you know that some types of shoulder pain can be fixed by treating the ligaments of your lung?
We’re one of only a small number of clinics in Anchorage that provides Fascial Counterstrain therapy. This is a painless and long-lasting treatment that can help a wide variety of painful or limiting conditions throughout the body.
