Strain-Counterstrain Massage

Strain-counterstrain massage therapy in Boulder & Broomfield therapistsLooking for Strain-Counterstrain Therapy?

This active stretching & manipulation technique works to rebalance the nervous system with the structure of the musculoskeletal system (skeleton and muscles of the body). Strain Counterstrain works to inhibit hyperactivity of the spasm reflex, allowing the muscle to relax by improving oxygenation and eliminating pain. This therapy is also known as positional release. It is a gentle, manual medicine technique that places the client’s body in a comfortable position for approximately 90 seconds; this allows client’s body to reset its muscles to normal, hence setting stage for muscles to heal.
