McHenry Positional Release Therapy
Positional release massage therapy is a specialized technique that treats muscle spasm and chronic pain in the ligaments, tendons and joints through precise manipulation to achieve release and the most optimal level of comfort possible.
How Does Positional Release Massage Work?
The process behind positional release techniques involves a neurological aspect that sends a signal to the brain to reduce muscle contraction and relieve chronic muscle spasms that do not respond to other therapeutic procedures.
From our fully equipped center, licensed Relaxation At Hand practitioners locate and assess problem areas on the body and provide treatment by placing the patient in a specific position for up to 90 seconds to achieve release. When performed by a professional massage therapist, the technique significantly reduces pain, inhibits the irregular muscle activity and induces tissue relaxation. When release is attained, the patient is slowly taken out of the position and will immediately experience a significant decrease in discomfort.
Positional Release Therapy has proven itself as an effective treatment for many conditions that our McHenry clients suffer from, including:

- Hip, knee & ankle pain
- Shoulder, elbow, wrist & hand pain
