In Module 4, students will learn to master the assessment and treatment of the Arterial System. As in the previous courses, competence with the entire cranial scan will be emphasized in addition to the mastering of treatment techniques specifically for the arteries of the body. The applicability of these techniques to clinical presentations continues to be emphasized, and updates of both the cranial scan and treatment techniques are incorporated into the course.
As in Modules 2 and 3, the labs in Module 4 are broken down into smaller pieces than the 3-day immersion course taught through the Jones Institute, enabling students to spend more time practicing each technique. This, in addition to the expansion of the program to 40 hours and much smaller class sizes, provides a superior learning environment. Instructors are able to spend time mentoring each student, ensuring an appropriate level of competence with the technique in its entirety. This includes the treatment of subsystems (medullary arteries, spinal and radicular arteries, arterial supply to the viscera, etc.) head/neck, trunk and extremities.
Emphasis on precision with palpation of landmarks, tenderpoints and the cranial scan continues to be a priority throughout the program, enabling students to constantly improve their skills of Counterstrain assessment and treatment. This inevitably translates to 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 Modules 1, 2 and 3 in addition to the Jones Institute’s Counterstrain for the Arterial System.
