The Importance of MET (Muscle Energy Techniques)

The flow of the massage session involves the skilled weaving of MET elements into a full body rhythmic, soothing, effective massage experience. It is difficult for me to imagine performing a massage session without incorporating MET methods as an intervention tool. I feel MET methods are generally safe and well accepted by clients.
However, To effectively integrate MET methods into the massage the massage therapist needs to be knowledgeable regarding joint movement patterns and normal ranges of motion. With practice and a shift in perception, the massage professional should be able to introduce these methods, and the underlying concepts, into the massage session, resulting in greater benefits to the client.

Anyone have a FAVORITE MET method they'd like to share???? Would love to hear them.
