_Muscle Energy Technique
This treatment is also known as Proprioceptive Neuromuscular Facilitation or PNF. The focus of the treatment is to reset your muscle length neurologically. Muscles that are tight and/ or sore as a result of stress or injury tend to be stuck in a shortened position.
Your massage therapist will have you contract the affected muscle followed by a slight stretch. By completing a series of these contraction/ stretch movements your muscle length can be reset neurologically back to where it should be.
