Module 2: Counterstrain for the Visceral System - Winter 2020 (Portland, OR)

Module 2: Counterstrain for the Visceral System is the powerful natural next step following the introductory Module 1: Counterstrain and the Cranial Scan of the Mastery Program. While the primary goal in Mod 1 is to master the feel of the entire cranial scan, Mod 2 goals are primarily concerned with mastering individual visceral techniques and to begin integrating the cranial scan in each and every session. By integrating the scan in every lab and not just focusing on the visceral system, but all systems, the scanning process becomes an extension of the practitioner and their skill set.

Visceral System labs are broken into much smaller pieces as compared to the 3-day FCS Introductory Courses. This and the expansion of the program to 40 hours allows us to make a critical shift in how we teach Counterstrain. In the Academy Mastery Program, the instructional emphasis shifts from introducing general concepts of visceral treatment techniques to ensuring and verifying that students are truly able to achieve successful releases of all visceral tender points, subsystems (pleura, upper GI, Urogenital, etc.) of the viscera, and entire regions.
