Muscle Energy Technique is a form of manual therapy which is particularly useful as a Myotherapy and Remedial Massage treatment modality. It is indicated when hypomobility is assessed in both global & segmental movement. The active component of MET is also thought to facilitate joint stabilising muscles and proprioception.

Rob has utilised Muscle Energy Technique in his practice for over 25 years and has taught MET in the Myotherapy program at both the RMIT University and at the Melbourne Institute of Massage and Myotherapy.
