Integrative Wellness AZ utilizes Fascial Counterstrain to restore function, decrease pain, and improve well-being.

Fascial Counterstrain

Fascial Counterstrain (FCS) is a gentle manual therapy technique that works on reducing tension in the body's connective tissue (fascia) by placing the client in a position of comfort; therefore slackening the connective tissue and restoring tissue mobility.


“Fascial Strain and Counterstrain technique is a skilled, passive manipulation of the body’s deep fascial proprioceptors. The goal of which is a normalization of the associated, dysfunctional, nocifensive and nociautonomic reflexes that maintain central, spinal cord sensitization. The observable clinical effects include: decreased nociception, decreased inflammation, improved flexibility, improved proprioception, normalization of muscle tone and improved functional performance.”
