James Crook  gives the first module of MET: working with breath in Rotterdam

 MET is developed by Bobby MacLaughlin CCI Co-counseltrainer from Ireland. Rolfing and Deep Tissue work are both early ancestors of Muscle Effect Therapy. She integrated Co-Counselling in MET.

MET is nonverbal work.  It melts frozen muscles. It works on emotional and physical levels at the same time.

MET uses very gentle, light and precise touch along muscles that hold excess tension. This helps people to change old and painful physical habit patterns. It may also enable access to buried memories previously blocked out of conscious awareness.

MET increases your awareness of your own body and reduces risk of injury under physical stress.

MET is client-directed.  The client decides how far and how deep to go, when to stop, how much feels safe.


The method is taught in a series of ten workshops.  Each workshop includes

  • Diagnostics:  How to look at a body, see where tensions are held and how they interconnect.
  • Awareness exercises, bringing the client’s attention into specific areas
  • Musculo-skeletal anatomy lessons
  • Therapy demonstrations followed by hands-on practice.
  • Q and A sessions
