If you are struggling with an injury or chronic medical condition, you may feel like there aren’t a lot of options for recovery. However, massage & active release technique can provide a lot of relief for conditions such as headaches, shoulder pain, chronic back pain, sciatica, knee problems, tennis elbow, carpal tunnel syndrome, plantar fasciitis, and more. Active release technique works for medical conditions caused by overused muscles, since it utilizes movement-based massage techniques that help to release the tension and buildup of chemicals and alleviate the pain that you feel on a daily basis.

The first step in the process of active release technique involves a full examination by a qualified professional who has training to perform this type of massage. He or she will feel the muscles in the affected areas, evaluating tightness, movement, and texture of these muscles, nerves, tendons, fascia, and ligaments. This helps the provider determine what areas feel abnormal and will benefit from treatment.

After the examination, the massage & active release technique provider will begin administering tension via direct massage of the affected muscles. Along with the direct massage, your provider will suggest movements that will correspond with treatment and encourage healing. Small tears or pulls in the muscles, resulting in these muscles becoming weakened and not able to take in enough oxygen to heal, cause many injuries. Massage & active release technique helps to break down scar tissue and stimulate the muscles, ligaments, tendons, fascia, or nerves. This customized treatment plan is patient-specific and offers great solutions to common problems.
