Simply put muscle energy techniques are where the client is asked to use a muscle group against a resisted force exerted by the practitioner. The client is then asked to relax and stop using the muscle group. It is at this point the practitioner stretches the muscle group as it momentarily relaxes.

This is an extremely safe, effective and pain free technique for releasing tight muscles and increasing muscle length.

Muscle energy techniques have many benefits including

  • Restoring normal tone in muscles
  • Strengthening weak muscles
  • Preparing muscles for stretching
  • Increasing joint mobility
  • Boosting local circulation

Muscle Energy Techniques Testimonials

  • “I went to Ben with an old shoulder injury that plays up from time to time, and what with starting to Row regularly it needs to be as well as possible for full maneuverability. After some questioning and muscle manipulation Ben started with a gentle warming massage. He continued with a deep, balancing massage that worked the troubled areas releasing tension and stiffness. I felt very relaxed and safe throughout as the massage worked deeper and in more detail. What I especially liked was the aftercare that identified the muscles that needed strengthening. Ben recommended moves and exercises to work with, empowering me to take control of my body.

    I would wholeheartedly recommend Bens open manner for a professional, honest and balanced massage that as well as aiding in recovery also teaches you how to take control of your body.”
