Myofascial Induction Therapy (MIT) is a hands-on full body approach, focusing on restoration of altered body function. In this process of assessment and treatment, the practitioner applies gentle manual mechanical stress transfer (traction or/and compression) to a targeted dysfunctional tissue. The outcome is a reciprocal reaction from the body that involves biochemical, signaling, metabolic, and finally physiological responses. This is primarily a tuition process, in the search for a restored homeostasis: recovering range of motion, appropriate tension, strength and, mainly, movements coordination. The term “induction” relates to the recovery of movement facilitation rather than a passive stretching of the fascial system.
