Muscle Energy Technique

This treatment is also known as Proprioceptive Neuromuscular Facilitation or PNF for short. Now you can see why we like the term “Muscle Energy Technique”: it’s easier to say. 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. The end result will be reduced tension and pain.
