Active Release Technique (ART) is a patented, movement-based massage technique that treats problems with muscles, tendons, ligaments, fascia and nerves. Dr. Eddie specializes in this hands-on approach. Once the injury has been assessed, the provider uses hands on treatment and patient motion to free up problem areas and scar tissue. When muscles, tendons, and ligaments are clear of scar tissue, a specific stretching and strengthening program is prescribed in order to restore normal function.
Utilizes skilled, hands-on techniques, including massage and joint mobilizations. This technique is used to diagnose and treat pain syndromes.

This technique can also be used to ease chronic pain, and can improve energy levels, boost immune response and assist in conditions including migraines and headaches, neurological issues, or arthritis.
Myofascial release is a gentle manual therapy technique that specifically targets the fascial tissue. Fascia is a tough connective tissue located just underneath the skin and encompasses your entire body. With any trauma, such as a car accident, repetitive stress or poor posture, the fascia can tighten and become less elastic, causing pain and movement restrictions. Chronic fascial tightness can even lead to long term biomechanical and postural changes. Myofascial release can help to elongate the fascial tissue, reduce pain and restore normal movement.
