Fascial Stretch Therapy
Fascia is the material surrounding all muscles in your body. Like other tissues, fascia can become tight and less mobile. The result is decreased range of motion, discomfort with stretching, and decreased ability to recover from activity.
Interesting fact, 47% of your flexibility is locked up in your joint capsule, and 42% of your flexibility potential is in your fascia. By extending the stretch to the joint capsule, you increase the benefits of traditional stretching, and the assisted nature of the treatment allows for greater gains than traditional stretching.

Active Release Technique (ART)
Active Release Technique (ART) is a patented, state of the art soft tissue system/movement-based massage technique that treats problems with muscles, tendons, ligaments, fascia, and nerves. Headaches, back pain, carpal tunnel syndrome, shin splints, shoulder pain, sciatica, plantar fasciitis, knee problems, and tennis elbow are just a few of the many conditions that can be resolved quickly and permanently with ART. These conditions all have one important thing in common: they are often a result of overused muscles that have built scar tissue in the affected area.
This scar tissue binds up and ties down tissues that need to move freely. As scar tissue builds up, muscles become shorter and weaker, the tension on tendons causes tendonitis, and nerves can become trapped. This can cause reduced range of motion, loss of strength, and pain. If a nerve is trapped you may also feel tingling, numbness, and weakness.
A series of Fascial Stretch Therapy, Active Release Technique, and chiropractic visits can relieve a surprising number of symptoms, restoring you to your active lifestyle. You’ll be back in action in no time!
