The Integrative Myofascial Release (IMR) course is a five-hour series. Dr. Jean Paul Amonte explains and demonstrates the components of IMR, including assessment, client positioning, techniques, and rehabilitative exercises. He presents several hand techniques, including Swedish, Russian, and Western. He also covers several ways to get a muscle in contraction to relax, including ischemic compression, vibration, reciprocal inhibition, post isometric relaxation, pin and stretch, Amonte towel, and stretching techniques. Finally, he includes rehabilitation exercises to strengthen the areas involved. Take any hour alone, but if taken together, it will give the viewer insight into Dr. Amonte’s integrated approach to treating patients and clients in practice.

Next, Dr. Amonte goes over various hand positions and ways to manipulate the towel to apply deep tissue massage without the discomfort often caused by other methods. Finally, he ends with a demonstration of the towel technique to apply a pin and stretch neuromuscular relaxation.
