is a type of hands-on treatment that attempts to alleviate muscle and connective tissue tightness by the use “passive positional release”. The technique was created in the early 1960s by Lawrence Jones, D.O. and involves very specific treatment positions held for 90 seconds or more. During the procedure, the involved tissue is “slackened” causing a relaxation of the contraction which, in turn, allows local areas of inflammation, trapped within painful tissue, to dissipate. Following the release, there is typically an immediate reduction of pain and tension in the involved tissue.
