Benjamin Bartlein, LMT, CSCI

Ben has been utilizing Counterstrain since 2013, and it was in that first year that he became a full convert to this powerful treatment approach. After being a victim of a car accident, leaving him with both a concussion and musculoskeletal pain, Counterstrain proved itself to be singularly effective in recovery. His direct experience with a relief and healing that was not achieved with chiropractic, massage, or acupuncture sent him on a path to master this unique therapy. Benjamin’s has honed his intuitive and holistic approaches through years of applying Eastern modalities of bodywork. However, it is with the gentle precision of Fascial Counterstrain that he creates powerful healing treatments for individuals looking to overcome pain, optimize their performance, and deepen their connection with their health and body.
