Active Release Technique is the gold standard in soft tissue care, used to treat athletic and overuse injuries. It is a patented, scientifically based treatment and diagnostic system which is recognized and used worldwide, from professional sports teams, to Olympic stadiums, to clinics for chronic pain or rehabilitation. ART can be used to improve performance and biomechanics as well as to treat injuries and to improve recovery from surgery. Common complaints which benefit from ART include plantar fasciitis, frozen shoulder, low back pain, cervical pain and whiplash, tennis and golfer’s elbow, ankle/wrist sprain, tendon injuries, and rotator cuff syndrome.
There are many kinds of massage and bodywork. Jeffrey primarily specializes in Structural Integration but he may utilize a combination of several others depending on the needs and desired outcome of each situation.
Structural Integration often occurs over a series of sessions and directly addresses postural issues with specific body alignment goals to meet. Techniques are done on a massage table or seated on a bench. Often the client engages in movements to help facilitate fascial release. Dr. Ida Rolf created the original 10 session series and this technique is sometimes called Rolfing after her.

Acupuncture can relieve pain and bring improvements in such foundational areas of life as sleep, digestion, and emotional well-being. It improves physiological function and aids the body in its natural healing process by stimulating specific points in the body, referred to as acupoints. Needling is the most well-known form this stimulation takes but other methods may be used: pressure, heat, electrical stimulation and manual therapy are among these.
