How Does Myoskeletal Alignment Therapy Work?
Contract - relax techniques can make the nervous system less threatened by the movement ... even if muscles aren't permanently lengthening, trigger points aren't being obliterated, fascia isn't stretching, etc.
Active pain-free therapy signals the brain that the previously painful movement is now safe.
By doing this repeatedly, the nervous system will often start to disassociate the movement from the pain.
