Active Release Technique®ART is a patented, state of the art soft-tissue-based massage 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. Every ART session includes both examination and treatment. Your certified ART provider uses their hands to evaluate the texture, tightness and movement of muscles, fascia, tendons, ligaments and nerves. Abnormal tissues are treated by combining precisely directed tension with very specific patient movements.
Corrective ExerciseCorrective exercise is a functional movement system that generally includes a series of specific exercises to aid in the rehabilitation and prevention of injuries to your major joints, such as the knee, ankle, hip, shoulder, etc… Your Upright Health provider will determine which exercises are appropriate for you, assist you with performing them correctly during your visit and educate you on how and when to perform them at home, for best results.
CuppingCupping involves placing a vessel on the skin and reducing the air pressure inside it either through the use of a hand pump or by heating the air with a fire source. This drop in air pressure pulls tissues into the cup which creates separation in the underlying tissues, potentially releasing adhesions within. Additionally, cupping draws blood into the underlying tissues which aids in muscle relaxation. We use both fire cupping and hand pump cupping in clinic and each offers a different experience. </P
