Active Release Techniques® (ART). ART® is a non-invasive, safe treatment that allows a practitioner to diagnose and treat soft-tissue injuries with their hands. Many of the injuries that are treated with Active Release Techniques are from repetitive stress to an area, overuse or over-training, sprains/strains, muscle pulls, or joint dysfunction. ART® is unique in its systematic approach because the patient can control the active movement during treatment. Additionally, ART® has a record of producing excellent results. There are over 500 specific moves unique to ART® that allow the practitioner to identify specific problems in each patient and individualize each treatment plan. During an ART® session, active muscle movement combined with precisely directed tension allows the practitioner to break up adhesions, or scar tissue. Left untreated, these adhesions can lead to pain, weakness, or numbness. During a session, patients may feel discomfort as the adhesions are broken up but that discomfort will subside after treatment. Learn more about Active Release Techniques®.

Kinesio Taping. The Kinesio Taping Method is designed to facilitate the body's natural healing process. By targeting different sensory receptors within the body, kinesio tape provides lightweight, external support that can help alleviate pain and decrease inflammation. The method can also be used to change muscle tone, correct movement patterns, and improve posture. It's extremely beneficial to athletes, but can also help with low back pain, tennis elbow, carpal tunnel syndrome, shin splints, and plantar fasciitis, to name a few. The tape itself is designed to mimic the qualities of skin, contains no latex, can be worn in water, and can last up to five days after application. It can be used in conjunction with traditional physical therapy treatments, both for recovery support and injury prevention.

Massage Therapy. Licensed Massage Therapy is one of the best-known methods of sports injury prevention and rehabilitation. Regardless of your age or fitness level, massage therapy can improve your physical and mental condition and become a powerful component of your overall healthcare regimen. Massage can benefit more than just athletes, however. Through its ability to help manage stress, restore emotional balance, enhance sleep quality, improve concentration, and increase energy levels, massage can provide boundless benefits to just about anyone!

Mother Massage®
Carrying a baby can put a lot of stress on a woman's body, especially as the pregnancy progresses. Massage therapy during pregnancy can complement prenatal care and promote wellness for both mother and baby. Mother Massage shares many benefits of regular massage—ease low back pain, improve circulation, reduce fatigue—but is specifically tailored to address the needs of pregnant women and their changing bodies.

Prenatal massage can not only help alleviate pain and strains and prepare a woman physically and mentally for labor, it can also allow for easier postpartum recovery. Most normal low-risk pregnancies can receive massage with no problem. However, if the pregnancy is potentially high-risk, it's a good idea to double-check with your doctor first.
