Muscle Energy TechniquesSmall contractions in a specific direction aimed at specific muscles. The aim is to excite or inhibit the target muscle to elicit a state of relaxation. This technique gets its origins from osteopathy and is now a technique used widely by myotherapists and soft tissue therapists.
It is a very gentle way to balance out the muscles and joints of the body by desensitising over excited muscle (spasms)
These techniques can be used all over the body and are very effective techniques.
