Harmonic Technique is a three dimensional mobilisation of soft-tissues and joints. It is passive rhythmic manual approach that is in tune to the individual’s natural body rhythms. These gentle rhythms are focused on and amplified and applied therapeutically to support different recovery processes and well being.
Research over the last four decade has demonstrated that passive movement, such as used during Harmonic technique, has an important role in facilitating tissue repair and adaptation after injury. Intermittent external compression has been demonstrated to improve tissue healing as well as increasing fluid flow and reducing oedema. Passive motion has been recently shown to facilitate recovery from rotator cuff surgery and help resolve pain in frozen shoulder. These studies suggest that passive motion can be a useful clinical tool in the treatment of different musculoskeletal conditions.
Dr. Eyal Lederman graduated from the British School of Osteopathy in 1986 and is working as an osteopath in London. He completed his PhD in physiotherapy at King’s College, where he researched the neurophysiology of manual therapy. He currently holds a post of Honorary Senior Lecturer at University College London (UCL), Orthopedics and Musculoskeletal Health were he is researching the clinical application of stretching in ROM rehabilitation. He also researched and developed Osteopathic Harmonic Technique, Functional Movement Re-Abilitation and Functional Stretching. He is involved in research examining the physiological effects and clinical use of manual therapy. Apart from his work in clinic and research he is also the director of CPDO, a centre providing continuing professional development for manual and physical therapists (UK).
Dr. Lederman has been teaching manual therapy and the scientific basis of manual therapy in different schools in the UK and abroad. He has published articles in the area of manual therapy and is the author of the books “Harmonic Technique”, “Fundamentals of Manual Therapy”, “The Science and Practice of Manual Therapy”, “Neuromuscular Rehabilitation in Manual and Physical Therapy” and “Therapeutic Stretching: Towards a Functional Approach”
