With over 500 protocols, it has success in treatment of a wide array of body parts from head to toe. A.R.T. is effective in treating both acute and chronic conditions of the muscles, tendons, ligaments, nerves, and joints. A.R.T. has been widely known for use with athletes, has been used with great success across all populations.
You can expect each A.R.T. session to be a combination of examination and treatment. The most common description of the sensation of the treatment is the feel of a pressure and a stretch at the same time. When tissues within the body are injured they often lose their ability to stretch or move. The ultimate goal of each treatment is to locate shortened or restricted structures and restore them to optimal function.
