This is an explanation by Deane Juhan of the physiology relating to Resistance Release work. A shorter (5 minute) introduction to Resistance Release work is available in the free section

Resistance/Release work is an innovative approach developed by Deane Juhan, based in large measure upon the rehabilitative techniques of Dr. Milton Trager.

Functionally, we are really one muscle that is divided up by the connective tissue structures into different compartments in order to provide specific vectors of motion and coordinated groups of motor units.  We are not robots with hinges, cables and pulleys, but shape-changers, and any gesture involves the participation of wide-spread muscular supports and motivators.

Resistance/Release work is designed to re-coordinate our musculature as a whole and to train more efficient and effective recruitments of muscular contractions and lengthenings involved in any position or movement, from feet to head and from sleeve to core.  The result is dramatically improved muscular coordination, adding both ease and strength to all of our activities.
