Muscle Release Therapy
Technique is a unique injury therapy that combines compression,
extension, movement, and breath to give the therapist a tool to provide,
in many cases, relief from pain in one treatment. With the Muscle
Release Technique scar tissue is broken up, the muscle is lengthened,
muscle memory is restored and relief from pain starts immediately.
There seems to be a
'mind set', a trained way of looking at any injury, that can be very
self limiting. There is an attitude, when looking at some injuries,
that it's just impossible.
That is the reason
I say the Muscle Release Technique is MORE THAN MASSAGE!
It is the answer to get people out of pain.
All massage therapists
and physical therapists know that when there is an injury to the muscle,
scar tissue is the result. Scar tissue will keep the muscle inflexible,
thus the muscle length is shortened. After a period of time, the muscle
memory is lost and the chance of re-injury is increased. Nerve impingement
is almost always associated with this condition, resulting in PAIN!
Cross fiber work and/or deep tissue massage will only give the client
With the Muscle
Release Technique, the client is placed in particular positions
so that the muscle begins to stretch in a very specific direction of
plane. Then pressure is applied directly into the focal point of the
affected tissue. The combination of a specific extension, precise
pinpoint compression, and an exact plane of movement, while working
with the breath, can produce an immediate RELEASE! The scar tissue
is broken up and the muscle length is restored. The results--no more
pain for the client!
With the Muscle
Release Technique, instead of using strength, one uses body positioning
and weight. The Muscle Release Technique is a tool to help therapists.
No longer do therapists need to feel inadequate when a client or a friend
comes to them in chronic or acute pain.
The main reason for
the success of the Muscle Release Technique is that it is a way of treating
the injury, and the resilient adhesions and scar tissue. When the Muscle
Release Technique is used regularly, it not only prevents injuries,
it helps to achieve a speedy recovery.
Do you often
feel numbness or tingling in your hands, especially at night, or when
doing repetitive grasping with your hands? Perhaps you experience clumsiness
in handling objects and sometimes you feel a pain that goes up the arm
to as high as your shoulder. These may be the symptoms of Carpal
The median nerve travels
from the forearm into your hand through a "tunnel" in your
wrist. The bottom and sides of this tunnel are formed by the wrist bones
and the top of the tunnel is covered by a strong band of connective
tissue called the carpal ligament. This tunnel also contains nine tendons
that connect muscles and bones to bend your fingers and thumb. These
tendons may enlarge and swell under some circumstances. When the swelling
is sufficient, it may cause the median nerve to be pressed against the
strong ligament. This sometimes results in numbness, tingling in the
hand, clumsiness or pain, as described above.
An Alternative Permanent Solution
First, DRUGS DO
NOT HEAL. The body heals itself. In most cases, drugs only mask the
problem. In addition, some drugs have dangerous side effects. Drugs
will never treat carpal tunnel syndrome successfully because the problem
is not a deficiency of drugs in the body. Second, surgery is not
a successful option either. When doctors do surgery, they are merely
treating the symptoms of Carpal Tunnel Syndrome. In most cases,
Carpal Tunnel Syndrome returns within two to three years after surgical
intervention. This is due to the fact that scar tissue takes the place
of the cut in the carpal ligament, again putting pressure on the median
Why is there such a
big mystery around Carpal Tunnel Syndrome? Could the problem
be as simple as the muscles in the forearm tightening up, thereby cutting
off circulation to the median nerve and tendons, causing the tendons
I am here to say that
this is exactly the cause of Carpal Tunnel Syndrome. Therefore,
the drugs that doctors give patients will only alleviate the pain temporarily.
Surgery will make the muscles tighten up even more.
By using a massage
technique called the Muscle
the therapist is able to work towards breaking down the scar tissue.
The muscles are lengthened and circulation is increased. This, in turn,
cuts down on the inflammation so permanent healing can take place.
90% of the clients
I've seen who suffer from Carpal Tunnel Syndrome, also suffer from Tendonitis.
This Tendonitis is caused by overworked muscles in the forearm. The
muscles lose their ability to relax. When there is a constant pulling
on the attachment site of the muscle, Tendonitis is the result.
When the muscles are
lengthened and the Muscle Release Technique is done, muscle memory
is restored and the muscles are able to regain their flexibility. As
a result, the Tendonitis disappears.
Once a person learns
how to do the Muscle Release Technique and can properly lengthen
the affected muscles, the symptoms of carpal tunnel syndrome disappear.
I am very excited with
the results of the Muscle Release Technique. I am eager to help
more people learn how to avoid the pain and misery of Carpal Tunnel
Syndrome and Tendonitis
