Releasology (noun): the practice and study of muscle release
This term, coined and trademarked by Royal Jacobs, is not only the name of his studio, but the driving force behind it. Royal believes that the key to resolving the most chronic pains and injuries is to identify the muscle spasm behind it, then treat it with a specialized pressure-point technique. At the Los Gatos studio, he helps alleviate clients' pain during releasology treatments and even offers lessons in the therapeutic technique.
