Jeff is Full Body Certified in Active Release Technique (ART), with emphasis on Nerve Entrapment. ART is widely utilized in professional athlete populations, marathon runners, and triathletes. ART is a patented, state of the art soft tissue movement based technique that treats problems with muscles, tendons, ligaments, fascia and nerves. Headaches, back pain, carpal tunnel syndrome, shin splints, shoulder pain, sciatica, plantar fasciitis, knee problems and tennis elbow are just a few of the many conditions that can be resolved quickly and permanently with ART. These conditions all have one important thing in common: they are often a result of overused muscles.
Jeff looks forward to helping you with your health concerns!
