Muscle Energy Technique

Extend your massage skills with these specialist techniques 

Muscle Energy Technique is a type of manual therapy used to lengthen, strengthen and improve the range of movement of muscles. The therapist will resist the desired muscle while the client contracts it and pushes against the therapist. This contraction is held for about 5 seconds and the process is repeated several times with a short rest in between.
