This four hour course teaches the most common and effective of all the forms of Muscle Energy Technique.
MET is a method of stretching that works well as a partner stretch and as such is a fitting ending to massage treatment as it helps to restore proper function and movement.
It is a highly practical course and other than some brief theory at the beginning, the rest of the theoretical learning will be delivered in tandem with the practical element to keep both theory and practical relevant to each other.
Over all, ten different applications of the technique will be taught. This will cover the most commonly treated areas of the body. The applications taught will improve general Range Of Motion by targeting more than one muscle at once. This makes the course ideal for Massage Therapists of all kinds as the stretches taught are both simple to apply and effective. Simply applying one or two of the stretches can have a profound effect on clients’ improvement.
What Participants Will Learn
1. Teach PIR Muscle Energy Technique.
2. Teach the concept of “global” or “fascial” stretching.
3. Teach when, why and when not to use Muscle Energy Technique.
