MET (Muscle Energy Technique)
The Muscle Energy Technique produces instant relief from pain. Muscle imbalance and pain reduced by application of MET. Therapist can learn various techniques of MET in our workshop.
Types of MET
-Post-Isometric Relaxation (PIR) – The therapist stretches and lengthens a muscle as it relaxes right after a client contraction. This lengthens, relaxes and realigns the muscle fibers.
-Reciprocal Inhibition (RI)- It is a law of body dynamics that when you contract a muscle the opposing or reciprocal muscle must relax. That is the way the brain is wired and the principle that makes this technique work. The therapist has the client’s muscle perform a contraction against resistance which relaxes the opposing muscle.
