Strain Counterstrain is a gentle hands on treatment to reduce pain and inflammation in and around
tense muscles. Many times pain in our muscles and joints is caused by muscle spasm. With Strain
Counterstrain, the therapist finds the muscles in spasm, gently and painlessly positions the body so that
the affected muscle is shortened, holds it for 90 seconds, and then releases very slowly. These actions
together reduce the muscle spasm, reduce pain, improve joint alignment, improve movement, and
reduce inflammation. This technique works well with back and neck pain as well as joint and muscle
pain throughout the body. Experience the fast relief that this technique provides.
