Muscle Energy Techniques & Soft Tissue Release Therapies

HS Sports Therapy - Sports Massage & Soft Tissue Release



Muscle Energy Techniques

Also known as MET, Muscle Energy Technique is a form of stretching commonly used by Sports Massage Therapists, Osteopaths, Physiotherapists and Fitness Professionals. It involves the active contraction of a muscle by the client against a resistive force provided by a second party.
MET is believed to be particularly helpful in lengthening postural muscles, which are prone to shortening. Theoretically, the active contraction performed by the client against the resistance produced by the therapist is an isometric contraction and may therefore be helpful in strengthening muscles. Also, contraction of one muscle group decreases tone in the opposing muscle group, and MET may therefore be beneficial in helping to overcome cramping.



Soft Tissue Release

This is a technique for stretching soft tissues, primarily muscles, fascia and tendons.
Soft Tissue Release helps localize a stretch to those fibres in the muscle that most need lengthening. It can be very beneficial to stretch selected parts of the muscle and stretch the fibres in sections allowing a better gain as a result.
