What is Advanced Muscle Therapy?
Advanced Muscle Release Therapy (AMRT) is a technique developed by Timothy Shockley Jr. that focuses on releasing muscular shortness and tightness. There are a number of conditions and symptoms that advanced muscle release therapy addresses.
AMRT is achieving amazing results for ordinary people in pain, people suffering from chronic range of motion, and athletes who have endured serious injury. It’s been used on children, U.S. veterans, musicians, professional athletes, professional bodybuilders and physique competitors.
By applying direct pressure to the muscles and the sticky connective tissue linings of the muscles, AMRT can cause a tremendous increase in blood flow to the muscles. By further working this connective tissue where different muscles are connected to one another, the practitioner can break small and large adhesions that prevent the muscle from achieving a greater range of motion and flexibility.
The tremendous force that is applied does not hurt, nevertheless it is able to move muscle and connective tissue in ways that it has not been moved, thereby causing a shift in the tissue. This shift triggers the release of built up toxins, and toxic waste as well as a huge increase in blood flow to the area, which provides oxygen that has been deprived due to lack of circulation. The basis of the technique is to restore blood flow to the heart, head and feet and once blood is restored and oxygen is replenished; therefore pain leaves the body.
Many clients seek treatment after losing flexibility or function following an injury or if experiencing ongoing back, shoulder, hip, or virtually pain in any area containing soft tissue.
Other conditions treated by advanced muscle release therapy include Temporo-Mandibular Joint (TMJ) disorder, carpal tunnel syndrome, or possibly fibromyalgia or migraine headaches. Patient symptoms usually include:
Tightness of the tissues that restricts motion or pulls the body out of alignment, causing individuals to favor and overuse one hip or shoulder, for example
A sense of excessive pressure on muscles or joints that produces pain
This technique has been used on
Everyday individuals to deal with chronic pain, correct misalignment, improve recovery and increase range of motion in stiff joints.
Professional athletes to dramatically improve recovery times, increase range of motion and provide better performance.
Bodybuilders to expand the size of muscle groups by increasing the circulation to the entire muscle belly, allowing for a dramatically improved flex and a better pump and improve body symmetry.
Those who suffer with traumatic brain injury, migraines, chronic headaches, etc.
