ART treatment is a unique protocol that consists of very precise, targeted movements, most of which are done by the patient. Each ART session is different and custom-created to treat the patient’s problem depending on the location and severity of the symptoms. Over 500 different hand motions are used by trained ART practitioners to evaluate a patient’s condition, locate areas of tightness that signify tissue damage, and then to help the patient move in a way that releases the affected tissue through “directed tension and very specific movements.”
Upper Extremity only.
Pregnancy is a magical time in any woman’s life. However, the dramatic changes that take place in your body as your pregnancy progresses can add stress to weight-bearing joints, cause painful backaches, and result in uncomfortable symptoms ranging from headaches and digestive problems to sciatica and chronic muscle tension. Studies indicate that massage therapy performed during pregnancy can reduce these symptoms as well as improve labor outcomes and newborn health.
Traditional Thai massage uses no oils or lotions. The recipient remains clothed during treatment. There is constant body contact between the giver and receiver, but rather than rubbing on muscles, the body is compressed, pulled, stretched and rocked. The massage generally follows designated lines (“sen”) in the body. The legs and feet of the giver can be used to position the body or limbs of the recipient. In other positions, hands fix the body, while the feet do the massaging.
We use this and many other techniques to help manage and alleviate our client’s pain.
