Def:That part of classical mechanics which deals with the relation between the motions of material bodies and the forces acting upon them. It is synonymous with dynamics of material bodies.
Kennetics: Derived from the spelling of Ted Kennett’s last name and the definition of the effects of forces on the motion of a body or systems of the body, especially of forces that do not originate within the system itself.
Kennetics is a twist of the original spelling of the word and is used to describe the specific techniques that are used in Kennetic Massage. By incorporating clinical trigger point therapy as described by Dr. Janet Travell, then adding Activated Isolated Stretching (AIS) by Aaron Mattes, and positional release while massaging they all deal with the relation between the body and its inbalances, pain patterns, and dysfunction. As a Massage Therapist for the last 20 plus years of practice, I have used these techniques individually with great success. One therapist described the combination as, “Trigger Points on Steroids” I guess he felt the combined techniques gave it an extra boost to his work.
Kennetic Massage takes these various techniques and by formulating them into a single technique, has shown great results in diminishing pain patterns, and soft tissue dysfunction for clients. Kennetic Massage has been very effective in Range of Motion Issues (ROM) from Repetitive Injury Syndrome (RIS), and everyday occurrences that can leave a person in a physically dysfunctional state from soft tissue problems. Kennetic Massage has been used on clients with symptoms of Carpal Tunnel Syndrome, Sciatica, Shoulder Stiffness, Stiff Neck to name a few, with excellent results. The additional advantage of the Kennetic Massage Technique is that it is ergonomically sound and very easy on the therapist, thus allowing the therapist to practice massage with less effort and less risk of injury to themselves and their client.
In the two day class much of the mystery of trigger point therapy will disappear and the therapist will enjoy the ease of combining the techniques for that added tool that can be used in their own practice, or in any clinic setting. Imagine being able to take this information, and actually apply it in practice immediately.
