Muscle Energy Technique

  • Using muscular contractions around a specific joint to remove restrictions in a joint or to stretch a muscle.


  • Using a small quick movement to increase range of motion at a joint.

Trigger Point Dry Needling

  • Using small acupuncture needles to release a trigger point in a muscle.

Fascial release / Myofascial release
