What is Mezieres Method
The Mezieres Method is physical therapy which unravels learnt distortions in the body's muscle structure.
How does Mezieres Method work?
Francoise Mezieres (1909-1991), a French physiotherapist and teacher of anatomy, made the discovery in 1947 while treating a patient. She discovered that rather than the muscles in the back being too weak and needing to be strengthened (as taught in conventional physiotherapy), they were too strong which caused them to shorten and be less flexible, creating tension and pain.
She devised a series of techniques which involves intense bodywork in order to resculpt the body.
What does Mezieres Method treatment involve?
One or two sessions a week are recommend for usually a few months or maybe longer depending on the work needing to be done.
Medical history notes will be taken, followed by physical work carried out by both the therapist and the client.
What can Mezieres Method help?
Aches and pains, long term distortions of the body including kyphosis (dowager's hump), scoliosis (spinal curvature), flat feet, knock knees and bow legs. Helps depression, improves confidence and reduces anxiety.
