Ligamentous Articular Strain Technique

Robert Libbey, RMT’s class (through World Massage Conference) was another very thought-provoking one! He researched a lot about another researcher, Andrew Taylor Snow, who found that ligament injuries are not seen, anymore, as simple musculoskeletal injuries. Ligament are, ultimately, the same as muscles and other tissues. Fascia, specifically, produces 2,000 pounds of pressure/1 square inch! It is throughout the body, decreases tension, and is symmetrical and nonlinear. Lastly, it is a feedback system (and I think it’s easy to see why b/c it has receptors) that affects the human body in a powerful way (good and bad), even when (and maybe ESPECIALLY when) only small changes are received from the body!
