Fascial Facet Release

The fast gentle way to correct joint dysfunctions

Correcting facet joint dysfunctions are an important aspect of manual therapy. As Massage Therapists we often employ Muscle Energy Technique (MET). This is an excellent choice for many people. However, just like high velocity (Chiropractic) adjustments it can be too aggressive or inconvenient at times. Using two subtle techniques we can correct facet restrictions and also change muscle tonus to the paraspinal muscles.

Easy to use

The Peri-ischial and Auricular Techniques are especially useful for very sensitive clients. You are able to perform these on someone that has just sustained an injury, for example having been in a MVA on the way to their appointment. Many fibromyalgia and chronic fatigue clients enjoy this method because they don't have to sit and bend forward, bend backwards and resist to test the facets. Positionally these techniques are patient and practitioner friendly. You can perform them standing, sitting and prone. It makes it easy to incorporate into your treatments as you won't need to have the person move to a chair half way through a visit.
