... established Release! Manual Therapy in 2015
Andrea C. Mohrle, MSPT, JSCC, CSC I
Counterstrain is a surprisingly gentle form of manual therapy. Dysfunctionally tight tissue is nudged into the direction of ease, which mechanically unloads this tissue and enables trapped inflammation to drain out while improving blood flow and nutrition into the tissue to promote healing. Muscle guarding reflexes are also shut down and normal tension is restored.
During treatment, the unique Counterstrain cranial scan, in combination with touch assessment of the body, is used to locate the specific tissue system(s) and structure(s) in the body which are causing symptoms. The Counterstrain technique is then applied to release the dysfunction and restore normal function. The goal is to find the cause of the problem and treat this, rather than just treating symptoms.
Andrea was first introduced to Counterstrain by a colleague in 1999, and upon completion of the SCS I - Spine Course in 2001, began her journey as a Counterstrain provider. Experiencing the effectiveness of this technique to release tension in the body and restore function, motivates Andrea to continually advance her Counterstrain skills and provide excellent care.
Andrea established Release! Manual Therapy in 2015 with the intent of providing exceptional care. Appointment times of one hour, one and a half hours, two hours, or longer are offered. Please contact Andrea (Andy) directly by phone or email for additional information or to schedule an appointment.
