Massage & Active Release Techniques
We call it the art of massage...
You will call it sensational!
Many doctors and medical researchers are now realizing the benefits of massage in the care of their patients. Some types of massage provide a general short-term feeling of relaxation, while others are designed to have longer-term therapeutic effects. The health benefits of massage include muscle relaxation, improved flexibility, reduced pain and better circulation. Additionally, massage diminishes stress, anxiety and depression.

Active Release Techniques ®
Active Release Techniques (ART) is an innovative treatment that is helping world-class athletes, active individuals, and people from all walks of life. It is a patented, state-of-the-art soft tissue system/movement-based massage technique that treats problems with muscles, tendons, ligaments and nerves. ART is designed to alleviate the build up of scar tissue and adhesions after soft tissue injuries.
Every ART session is actually a combination of examination and treatment. The ART provider uses his or her hands to evaluate the texture, tightness and movement of muscles, fascia, tendons, ligaments and nerves. Abnormal tissues are treated by combining precisely directed tension with very specific patient movements. The treatment protocols - over 500 specific moves - are unique to ART. They allow providers to identify and correct the specific problems affecting each individual patient.
ART involves two levels of care: Injury Care & Performance Enhancement. Treatment sessions last about 15 minutes, depending on how long the patient has had the injury. Some of the conditions that can be treated with ART include headaches, back pain, carpal tunnel syndrome, shin splints, rotator cuff syndrome, sciatica, plantar fasciitis, patellar tendonitis, and tennis elbow.
