Muscle Energy Technique
Muscle Energy Technique (MET) is a form of soft tissue therapy that seeks to improve joint mobility or musculoskeletal function by using the energy of the client. In MET the practitioner will hold a joint in a specific position that lengthens tight, stiff or short muscles, and will ask the client to move towards this resistance. This will be held for three or so breath cycles. The client will then relax and the practitioner is able to move the joint into a more optimal position as the muscles will have relaxed.
