In this unique approach, the LOKTE® practitioner uses carefully controlled weight to anchor affected areas with the sole of their foot. The weight of the foot is used to isolate the dysfunctional tissue. This allows the practitioner to begin to work through the restrictions resulting in a change in the fascial matrix. Intelligent tissue anchoring ensures the focus remains on the tight areas, preventing the more flexible areas of the myofascia from absorbing the resulting stretch.
The client provides slow, directed movement at an adjacent joint to release the “stuck” tissue, loosening the restrictions at a comfortable pace, with complete control over the process. Once the adhesions are broken, the tissue is able to rehydrate, removing the source of inflammation and pain. This type of direct release tends to offer immediate change providing more profound and lasting relief for clients in a short period of time.
