Lecturer  – Haydn Gambling

JCS1 covers a system based approach to upper quarter dysfunction through treatment techniques developed by Dr. Jones that positively affect the sympathetic nervous system, central and peripheral vascular flow, and the musculoskeletal systems. This course offers a thorough introduction to various dysfunctions that contribute to somatic pain originating from T12 or above, making it a perfect starting point for beginners and a comprehensive upper quarter review for advanced Counterstrainers.

Lecture and extensive lab time are spent on the cervical spine, thoracic spine, rib cage, shoulder, elbow, wrist and hand. Emphasis is placed on developing palpatory and hands-on treatment skills to enhance the students effectiveness with the techniques. Upon completion of the course, participants will understand the neurophysiologic basis for Counterstrain, be able to perform the general Counterstrain procedure, and will gain a comfort level with the more than 85 techniques that are taught. Each participant will receive a course syllabus and technique charts.
