Active Release Technique (ART)
Powerful fascial release
Certified providers of upper extremity Active Release Technique (ART), a powerful fascial release technique; break down soft tissue adhesions, restore function and speed healing.
Grant Pretorius, DC, is the only 'Full Body Certified' providers of Active Release Technique (ART) in Farnham and the surrounding villages. ART is know as the "Gold Standard" soft tissue techniques used throughout professional sport in the USA and Canada and it is becoming very popular in Europe too.
ART is a patented movement based massage technique which is extremely effective in treating issues with tendons, ligaments, muscles, nerves and fascia. When you have ART with Grant, you can expect him to accurately find your problem, apply the correct pressure on the injury site, and then ask to move in a specific way. This is done while Grant applies specific tension to the tissue which allow the adhesions (scar tissue) to break. The effect is improved movement of the damaged structures, better circulation to the area, and less irritation.
Please take the time to watch the video below (5 minutes) where the inventor of ART, Michael Leahy, further explains what ART is and you will see him demonstrate a technique on a patient's shoulder.
