Our Practitioners are licensed physical therapists in the State of Washington with advanced education and training. We all have taken extensive continuing education in biomechanical, biochemical, and movement based coursework.
This includes:
  • Myofascial release technique,
  • Strain / counterstrain,
  • Positional release technique
  • Muscle energy technique,
  • Joint mobilization,
  • Cranial or craniosacral based treatment,
  • Balanced ligamentous tension,
  • Visceral mobilization,
  • Arterial or vascular treatment technique, 
  • Chapmans neurolymphatic release,
  • Bennett's vascular bed / capillary bed technique,
  • Pottenger Approach to organ function. 
Are our Practitioners trained in Active Release Therapy (ART)?


Myofascial release is the manipulation and restoration of movement to tissues that surround your muscles called fascia. It’s a treatment of all the containers and how they get bound up on themselves and on each other due to oxidative, chemical, and mechanical stress.

Myofascial release (MFR) is very effective at restoring lost range of motion in your joints. It also decreases pain by breaking up scar tissue and adhesions that cause pain, swelling, and inflammation. Myofascial release can also be used to improve the function of your nerves, that when irritated cause numbness, tingling, and radiating pain.


Active Release Technique (ART) is a patented form of myofascial release treatment. This particular technique focuses on more physically rigorous and expanded application of myofascial release, that is, it is a applied more deeply and specifically focused not just on the containers of the muscles but how those containers coalesce to form tendons, ligaments, or joint capsules. This treatment approach is known by several other names but is usually most often just identified as an extension of myofascial release. All the aspects of myofascial release have been contained in the general body of knowledge maintained by osteopathic practices for over a hundred years.

So, no, our practitioners have not taken several classes of the patented form of myofascial release known as Active Release Techniques or ART. However, they are well versed in the structures of the human body and how they interrelate. Our practitioners fully understand these biomechanical and chemical relationships as they apply to standing, sitting, walking, running, lifting, pushing, pulling, throwing, and exercising.


Myofascial release and its patented aspect known as ART can be used to treat a variety of conditions including: plantar fasciitis, shin splints, iliotibial (IT) band syndrome, piriformis syndrome, sciatica, low back pain, thoracic outlet syndrome, tension headaches, neck pain, rotator cuff strains and tears, tennis elbow, golfer’s elbow, carpal tunnel, ulnar tunnel, wrist pain, and hand pain.

Together with our knowledge of ergonomics, posture, injury prevention, and injury management, you have a winning combination to guide you to recovery!
