Ease and harmony are what the body seeks to rediscover with Positional Release Therapy, a gentle osteopathically-based system for working the body’s self-corrective reflexes.
PRT does not use forceful manipulation. It is gentle, non-intrusive and safe, even in cases of acute injury and chronic pain. The guiding principle is to work with the body to activate self-corrective reflexes, instead of trying to stretch a muscle that is tight. The practitioner will compress the shortened muscle, giving the body direct feedback to the proprioceptive reporting station so it will not continue to report strain. It puts the spasmodic muscle to sleep. The position of ease is held for 90 seconds. The false strain message is stopped as well as the irritation and pain. The released shortened muscle is slowly returned to neutral so as not to restart the dysfunction. Upon completion of a session the client receives home exercises to do to further facilitate the neuro-muscular re-education process that began in the session.
