Your problem may be a simple fix but that doesn't mean it's easy.

The first and most import question to ask is whether or not ART is the right tool for your problem.
This serious question leads you to the most appropriate tool for the puzzle your trying to solve. The most appropriate tool can be determined by your physician.

Here's a dirty little secret about soft tissue problems. They can often be very simple problems to address.

ART providers treat a very common and misunderstand problem.The focus of ART is treatment of loss of tissue movement due to adhesion or scarring. It's common to experience a wide range of pain levels from this unexpected source. Adhesion or scar tissue forms within or around tissue when exposed tofriction,pressure or tension. These pressures can be a result of daily repetitive movements or positions. Scar formation is an inevitable result from injury from sports, micro-injuries from repetitive movements and surgery.

Adhesions or scarring formbetween the planes of movement of our tissue. Sometimes this results in pressure on a nerve. Sometimes adhesions form between the fascia of muscles. Sometimes adhesions or scarring results stiff joint capsule. Whatever your tissue mobility problem may be, a skilled ART provider detects your tissue movement qualities with his/her hands. Manyproblems cannot be detected with imageing studes such as an MRI, X-ray or Ultrasound. A problem that is not understood at it's source can be effectively treated. A problem that cannot be detected with the hands cannot be treated. A provider cannot find what is not understand and cannot effectively treat what cannot be felt with the hands.

The treatment of tissue means moving the tissue beneath your hands by applying one of the over six hundred protocols that have been mapped out by Dr. Micheal Leahy. ART providers are trained to detect the independent movement of tissues as they translate in movement. The provider uses a specific contact, tension and movement to restore tissue movement quality. Good agreeable sensations are ideal for optimal results.

Results are what it's all about.ART sessions are fast and effective. Most clients experience dramatic results within minutes of beginning treatment. This is simply because ART treatment is very specific to anatomical structure as the entire system of movement is addressed.
