Muscle Energy Technique (MET)
A non-invasive soft tissue approach to realigning the spine, pelvis and ribcage. Assessment is done by motion-palpation to discover which specific muscle fibers are involved in the misalignment. These isolated muscles are then placed in a gently stretched position; contracted (with no movement) against resistance; and gently re-stretched. The contract/relax/stretch series is repeated 3-4 times effecting the realignment via the "muscle's energy".
