What is Muscle Release Technique
When any work is incessantly performed by our body then it results into strain in our muscles. Muscle release is massage therapy in which foremost focus is to relieve the body from twinge caused by muscle strain. This technique was developed by Michael Young who is a massage therapist.
This technique is a combined technique in which compression, extension, movement and breath is provided to relief the patient from wide range of problems, including sports injuries, chronic pain and repetitive stress injuries.
The therapist that is going to perform muscle release technique should be professional experience and he should also be certified. The client has right to ask proofs regarding his certification because if this technique is not performed properly then it could be injurious.
Muscle release technique includes various principles they address the body as a whole but their most important focus is on our muscles. Because problem in muscles is responsible for pain, aches, stiffness, loss in flexibility.
Before applying this technique therapist will ask the client about the main areas where pain is more. After having an enquiry about area and cause of problem the therapist will ask the client to step up onto padded massage table. Muscle release technique can be performed in loose, comfortable clothes.
When there is any injury in our muscles then result in the scar tissue. In muscle release technique scar tissue is broken. For this strength is not used, rather right positioning and weight is used. Pressure is applied directly into the focal point of the affected tissue. The combination of proper positioning, exact pinpoint compression, and breath can produce an immediate release from pain.
The two main benefits of muscle release technique are pain relief and strong, flexible muscles. But regular sessions are required for better results. Depend upon the extent of injury sessions can be extended. But if regular sessions are opted then therapist can prevent the recurrence of pain and injury.
