Is a system of manual therapy that aims to improve human biomechanical functioning as a whole for the treatment of chronic musculoskeletal pain and dysfunction.
Manual force is applied to the soft tissues in a manner that is generally more gradual and prolonged, yet with more pressure than is typical of massage. Improves posture and motor coordination, increases overall relaxation, independence of movement between adjacent soft tissue structures, increases the rate of blood circulation and interstitial fluid flow, which is potentially significant because movement through the soft tissues accounts for a large portion of fluid transfer in the body, as well as increases the stimulation of sensory nerves and enhances somatosensory perception.
