Manual treatment of the soft tissues has existed since the beginning of recorded history in the form of massage and manipulation. The primary purpose of these approaches was apparently to treat symptomatic soft tissues.  Soft tissue mobilization (STM) has been developed not only to evaluate and treat soft tissue dysfunctions that precipitate myofascial pain but also to evaluate and treat those dysfunctions that alter structure and function and produce mechanical strains on symptomatic structures. 

Treatment pressure is applied in the direction of the restriction, and as it releases, the slack is taken up to keep a consistent pressure on the resolving restriction. The direction of the restriction often changes as the release occurs, and appropriate adjustments in the direction of force are needed to maintain the pattern of release
