SOFT TISSUE RELEASE (STR)
What is it?
Developed in the 90's to treat sprinters with torn muscles. A combination of movement (stretching) and muscle manipulation. Re-educates the central nervous system. Like pressing the re-set button.
How does it work?
Application of pressure whilst stretching the muscle. Trauma or micro trauma causes muscles to become too tight or too loose. This is controlled by our nervous system.
This precise technique tricks the nervous system and re-sets the muscles memory so effectively restoring the muscles correct length.
Who is this for?
Not just for sports people. This technique can be used on anyone with chronic muscle pain such as computer related strain or back pain.
