GT is not designed to be painful or cause excessive bruising. Occasionally, as with any form of manual therapy and depending on the patient’s condition, minor discomfort during the procedure and some bruising afterward may be experienced. GT clinicians are trained to recognize these symptoms and adjust treatment intensity to minimize their occurrence, while realizing the benefits of the Technique®. GT does not need to be considered “painful” to be effective. Please inform your clinician if you are experiencing discomfort anytime during treatment.
