Muscle Release Therapy, MRTh® was developed to enhance Muscle Tone so that the muscle would be able to add Muscle Strength. They are two separate entities and you can't have one without the other. Muscle Strength provides the dynamics necessary for proper movement. Muscle Tone provides the ability of the muscle fiber to be in the proper position to be strengthened.
What is meant by this, muscle fibers must be aligned properly with the skeletal structure or bone that they are meant to move. Through any form of trauma or injury fibers often realign themselves in a posture that accommodates the misalignment, and therefore are no longer in a positive position of movement. The brain does not recognize muscles but does control movement patterns so even when exercising the proper muscle fibers do not have to "fire" because the brain is trying to replicate a movement pattern not have a particular muscle fiber work.
That dilemma forces the body to recruit other fibers and this is what often creates future problems in the pain cycle. People often continue to "strengthen" muscle fibers that are not properly aligned and this will cause the wrong fibers, or the ones that are holding improper posture, to become stronger than the ones that should be working.
What Muscle Release Therapy, MRTh® does is find the improper tension in the muscle fibers by determining the improper movement patterns, releasing the protective posture and allowing the individual's brain to "release" back to a natural position and tension. This is proper muscle tone!
With proper muscle tone the movement patterns used in strengthening will function at a higher level and this access will force the muscle to recruit from within itself. This is a very complex topic to wrap yourself around but it is an important one to try and understand because one can actually make their discomfort worse by moving in an improper pattern.
What does Fundamental Movement Therapy - FMTh(sm) / Pilates do for you? There is a major misconception that Pilates is meant to be an aerobic exercise that produces much perspiration and supposedly strengthens you. When Joseph Pilates developed his theory of Contrology or controlled movement it was with the purpose of using the proper muscle fibers to move and strengthen in the proper movement patterns. He would position the frame to work accordingly with the overall structure, much as any mechanical structure needs to.
As you are taken through the process of proper movement the brain will encourage the proper fibers to work and thus strengthen. The objective of forcing the body to perspire is contradictory to what needs to be done as this forces the body to work under stress. This stress forces the brain to diversify itself and the hormonal imbalance is overworked therefore limiting the efficiency of the body and brain.
