Woman receiving Massage Therapy to her lower back and spine.

Best suited for: treatment and maintenance of scoliosis and joint stiffness

Muscle Energy Technique (or MET) is a technique based on the principle of “reciprocal inhibition”. This theory explains that muscles on one side of a joint will always relax to accommodate the contraction of muscles on the other side of that joint.

A gentle, non-invasive method of manual therapy, MET is used to isolate the small structural and supportive muscles of your spine and limbs. This technique is performed as you are actively contracting.

The most common candidates for this technique are people with limited range of motion due to neck and back pain. Those suffering with scoliosis and sciatica may find this technique particularly useful.

Muscle Energy Technique may help with relieving pain, reducing edema, and improving mobility of affected joints. MET is often used by athletes as a preventative measure against potential injury.

Most practitioners agree that MET can be beneficial for nearly anyone.
