International Therapist (Muscle Energy Techniques)
This practical guide, packed full of colour photographs, illustrates the theory and practice of muscle energy techniques (MET). The principles described can be incorporated very quickly and effectively into a treatment plan, and may be used to effectively assist the rehabilitation of injuries.

The theory is good to read and explained very well. The MET for the muscle you want is easy to find and apply. I add MET to Swedish and Thai sessions for tight muscles and joints and posture problems, and my clients usually mention an improvement.

A great book that any therapist treating soft tissue dysfunction should add to their library. I found the last chapter on specific testing for muscle weakness very helpful and informative. The book is extremely user-friendly and has a high quality of content.
