We are pleased to announce that Marlyn Bravo recently received her Upper Extremities Active Release Techniques(ART) Certification and is available to provide active release therapy in Sherwood Park. She earned her Lower Extremity ART Certification in December, 2012.
“ART is a patented, state of the art soft tissue system/movement based massage technique that treats problems with muscles, tendons, ligaments, fascia and nerves. The ART provider uses his or her hands to evaluate the texture, tightness and movement of soft tissues and nerves. Overused muscles and other soft tissues cause your body to produce tough, dense scar tissue in the affected area. This scar tissue binds up and ties down tissues that need to move freely. As scar tissue builds up, muscles become shorter and weaker, tension on tendons causes tendonitis, and nerves can become trapped. This can cause reduced range of motion, loss of strength, and pain. If a nerve is trapped you may also feel tingling, numbness, and weakness. Abnormal tissues are treated by combining precisely directed tension with very specific patient movements.” – ART Website
