Multiple Scelrosis (MS) is a condition of the nervous system that can have detrimental effects on various systems and functions of the body. Soft tissue therapy and other lifestyle changes can help in the management and reversal of the condition.
Positional Release Therapy (PRT) also known as strain-counterstrain is a form of bodywork aimed at resolving dysfunctions in a painless manner. It takes the force off the tissue to release it, unlike most other soft tissue techniques which apply force to stretch restricted fibres. This painless and delicate approach makes PRT suitable for treating people with acute conditions or severe pain or sensitivity.
Stability and control in the area of the core muscles are essential for maintaining a good posture with strength and efficiency. You can think of the core muscles as the chassis of a car – the supporting frame that keeps everything together in an organised and stable manner.

For a long time the fascial network surrounding all the body's major structures was largely ignored. Usually discarded without any examination when exploring cadavers, the importance of the fascia was not recognised. In recent decades the bodywork field has began awakening to the profound significance of this fascinating structure.
Having a tight muscle almost always translates into joint stiffness. Back in the days, Osteopaths developed a clever technique of restoring a muscle’s ‘normal’ length to prepare clients for joint manipulation. Once the surrounding soft tissues are sufficiently released, the chances of comfortable and successful joint manipulation are much higher.
