Active Release Techniques® (ART®) Certified Provider

Active Release Technique ® (ART®) is a highly sought after, gold standard soft tissue technique that uses movement based massage to treat muscle, tendon, ligament, fascia, and nerve entrapment or impingement problems. There are three steps involved in one A.R.T. session: diagnosis, treatment, and relief.  A.R.T. practitioners learn over 500 treatment protocols that require an advanced sense for tissues and their texture, tension, and movement, targeting the root cause of the condition. The treatment involves our Chiropractor using this unique approach to break up scar tissue that forms between layers of tissue as a result of an acute injury, repetitive stress, or chronic tissue tension. A.R.T. reduces pain, improves strength and functional movement, and restores circulation and neurologic function.
