  • Deeply effective self-applied techniques to release chronically tight muscles

SMR is extremely user friendly it can be taught to people for use at home

Overview

Release With Therapeutic Small Balls: Using an assortment of therapeutic balls of different sizes and densities (or other tools) distinct applications of a ball to the body, traction and body weight. You learn a systematic method to: elongate muscle, free muscular & myofascial restrictions, separate muscle compartments, free joint capsule restriction, and identify and release trigger points.

Based on the Latest Myofascial Science: The Method employs the groundbreaking anatomy of the myofascial chain system as its foundation. Based on the respected courses and books from Thomas Myers and The Kinesis Myofascial Institute – “Anatomy Trains – Myofascial Meridians”.

Chain – Stretch: In addition to the Release techniques, TKM also teaches an updated stretch approach.  Address an entire myofascial sling of muscles, rather than being limited to the more traditional singular muscle group way of stretching
