Muscle Energy Technique is one of the most effective and gentle manual techniques for the correction of somatic dysfunction. MET uses accurate assessment techniques

This beautifully produced DVD covers the pelvis, sacrum and lumbar spine. Specifically, this dvd includes corrections for a pelvis upslip, downslip, rotations, inflair and outflair and pubic bone dysfunctions. It also covers Sacral rotations, and unilateral flexion/extension dysfunctions. The lumbar section covers one or multiple vertebrae stuck in flexion or extensions. In addition to all this, there is also a section on using muscle energy to balance and relax all the muscles surrounding the hips.
