Jones Counterstrain III: Cranial 

Course Description:

Jones Counterstrain III covers a system based approach to the evaluation and treatment of cranial, facial, TMJ, and hyoid bone dysfunction. New and powerful techniques have been added to the course that demonstrate the full body affect of each release.


The testing of cranial mobility, cranial landmarks, cranial anatomy, and layered palpation are emphasized to prepare the student for immediate success in the clinics and success in future courses.


If you are struggling with the cranial scan in the Fascial Curriculum, this is the course will dramatically increase you knowledge of the cranium and skill of cranial mobility testing. 


44 new techniques and variation techniques for troublesome patients are presented that include: suture releases, sphenobasilar releases, dural releases, sinus treatments, and treatment for the muscles of mastication.
