Transverse Soft Tissue Release - My Story

Transverse STR was conceived about 15 years ago when I started playing around with the angles, direction, and methods of applying the classical form of STR.  It was with the intention of achieving a better outcome that required less effort on my part but felt better for my client.  As a result, the advantages proved to be many.

Takes into account the structural limitations of hypermobile clients (including pregnant women)

It makes efficient use of multi-pennate muscles

This technique can be applied to shallow areas of muscle  with ease

The releasing of the diaphragm and the abdominals are no longer an issue

Awkward areas such as along the length of the spine are easily treated

'Ropey muscles' can be efficiently softened and 'stretched'

It will save your hands and thumbs,  you will be able to apply a strong, and sensitive technique without strain to yourself

 If you want a technique that will effectively get the job done with ease, one that can easily be integrated into how you already work, this will do it.

I suspect you just might leave with the same passion for it as I have.
