Module 2: Counterstrain for the Visceral System is the 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 immersion course taught through the Jones Institute. 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.
We continue to maintain a heavy emphasis on the student’s ability to follow the cranial scan. This continues throughout the entire program and is never limited to one system, but includes all systems. Through constant focus on the primary diagnostic method, students of the academy not only get superior instruction in the individual techniques, they also become masters at the art of cranial scanning. This inevitably translates into superior performance in the clinical application of Counterstrain, as students of the academy not only learn to speak the language of the body, but attain unparalleled fluency.
All levels of Counterstrain practitioners are welcome, but you must have completed Module 1 – Counterstrain and the Cranial Scan and the Jones Institute’s FCS VC.
