Active Release Therapy®

Active Release Techniques® (ART) is a state of the art soft tissue and movement based manual therapy technique that treats problems with muscles, tendons, ligaments, fascia and nerves.

 IMS Acupuncture and Dry Needling

A small and thin acupuncture needle is used to relax tight muscles and stimulate the healing of over-sensitive nerves.  It also helps stimulate the body to release the body’s own painkillers.


Shockwave, or extracorporeal shock wave therapy (ECSWT), is a non-surgical, non-invasive tool that accelerates healing and regenerates damaged tissue.  It is often most effective in cases where the body has not been able to heal itself on its own.
