Reduces Tightness, Restricted Movement, Musculo-Skeletal Imbalances and Pain. Effective for Structural Imbalances, Back, Neck, Pelvic Respiratory Dysfunction…
Muscle Energy Technique is a direct and active technique where the practitioner identifies a restrictive barrier in a muscle and requests the patient to resist against the practitioners pressure.
The typical injury is when a traumatic jolt or over use of a muscle makes the muscle believe it is shorter then it really is. With MET the practitioner positions the client’s body so that individual muscle fibers are lengthened to what the sensory system thinks is the muscle’s maximum length. The patient is asked to contract against resistance, hold and release. By releasing from the static position, the muscle lengthens and relaxes.

Corinne has studied with Dr. Loren Rex and Julie Bacon. Over the years she has used some of these tools for healing and found it very effect.
Jerome uses similar principles as Muscle Energy Technique with the Reflex Response work used in conjunction withThe Trager® Approach and Joint Mobilization taught by Robert King, former president of the AMTA.
