MRT™ is a unique injury therapy that combines compression, extension, movement and breath to give the therapist a tool to provide, in many cases, relief from pain in one treatment. With MRT™ scar tissue is broken up, the muscle is lengthened, muscle memory is restored and relief from pain starts immediately.
Instead of using cross fiber work or deep tissue techniques, the client is placed in a position from which the muscle can be stretched with moderate pressure rather than force. After releasing the tight muscles, the client will get up off the table and see a significant change in his or her pain level. The practitioner then teaches the client what to do at home to keep his muscles lengthened and his pain at ease. Our therapist’s goal is to empower our clients to take charge of their own health. We often are able to help a client in one treatment while several sessions may be necessary for those clients with significant injuries.
Muscle Release Technique (MRT) is MORE THAN MASSAGE! It is the answer to get people out of pain.
The main reason for the success of the Muscle Release Technique, is that it is a way of treating the injury, and the resultant adhesions and scar tissue. When the Muscle Release Technique is used regularly, it not only prevents injuries, but when an injury does occur, it helps to achieve a speedy recovery.
NormaTec is the leader in rapid recovery—our systems give a competitive edge to the world’s elite The NormaTec PULSE Recovery Systems are dynamic compression devices designed for recovery and rehab. All of our systems use NormaTec’s patented PULSE technology to help athletes recover faster between trainings and after performance.
Our systems include a control unit and attachments which go on the legs, arms, or hips. They use compressed air to massage your limbs, mobilize fluid, and speed recovery with our patented NormaTec Pulse Massage Pattern. When you use our systems, you will first experience a pre-inflate cycle, during which the connected attachments are molded to your exact body shape. The session will then begin by compressing your feet, hands, or upper quad (depending on which attachment you are using). Similar to the kneading and stroking done during a massage, each segment of the attachment will first compress in a pulsing manner and then release. This will repeat for each segment of the attachment as the compression pattern works its way up your limb.
“The purpose of this study was to assess peristaltic pulse dynamic compression (PPDC) in reducing short-term pressure-to-pain threshold (PPT) among Olympic Training Center athletes after morning training. […] We conclude that PPDC is a promising means of accelerating and enhancing recovery after the normal aggressive training that occurs in Olympic and aspiring Olympic athletes.” —view article on pubmed.
“We investigated whether a single 60 min bout of whole-leg, lower pressure external pneumatic compression (EPC) altered select vascular, metabolic, antioxidant and inflammation-related mRNAs. […] An acute bout of EPC transiently upregulates PGC-1α mRNA, while also upregulating eNOS protein and NOx concentrations in vastus lateralis biopsy samples” —view article on pubmed.
“This study investigated the effects of peristaltic pulse dynamic compression (PPDC) on range-of-motion (ROM) changes in forward splits. […] PPDC provides a means of rapidly enhancing acute ROM requiring less discomfort and time.” —view article on pubmed.
“The purpose of this study was to determine the acute effects of a single bout of peristaltic pulse EPC on peripheral conduit and resistance artery function. […] Acutely, whole limb, lower pressure EPC improves conduit artery endothelial function systemically, but only improves RH blood flow locally (i.e., compressed limbs).” —view article on pubmed.
