Positional release is a gentle, highly effective method of eliminating or decreasing pain. It restores function to muscles, fascia, bones, and joints. Once tender areas of the musculature or trigger points are found, the therapist moves the client’s body into a position that relieves the pain. By maintaining this comfortable position for up to 3 minutes and monitoring the trigger point, the therapist feels the tissue relax and release. Often several trigger points cause pain in the same area of the body. The client is moved into various positions to release each of these trigger points. The result is lasting relief, greater range of motion, and more fluid movement.
