Spinal osteopathic-cropThis specialised form of massage therapy has many benefits. It is a more gentle form of massage intervention that differs from Swedish massage in that you, as the patient, need to activate your muscles in a particular way to receive the full benefit of MET.

MET uses a nerve related relaxation of muscles during and after a gentle muscle contraction to create an effect within the body. The effects include:

  • Relaxation of muscular tissue
  • Lengthening of muscular tissue
  • Re-alignment of spinal and pelvic bones
  • Balancing of muscles around a particular joint

MET can be used as a stand alone treatment, but is usually combined with a Remedial Massage session.
