SRT (Soft Tissue Release) is when a specific muscle is placed in a stretched position and quick repetitive stretches are done while a precise area of the muscle is held with pressure to achieve a specific stretch. PNF (Proprioceptive Neuromuscular Facilitation) are stretches and movements added throughout the massage to enhance active and passive movements and improve ranges of motion (ROM) These techniques will greatly improve joint range of motion (ROM), flexibility, helps decrease muscle pain and tension, decreases muscle spasms, decreases neurological excitability ( relaxes nerves) and helps improve quality of sleep.
