Trigger Point Technologies and ART, Active Release Technique, have found a relationship that is truly making a positive impact on athletes and non-athletes alike.
If you’ve been to an Ironman Event here in North America you’ve seen both parties working separately for the greater good of the athletes. “What we want people to know is that we are in support of each other and our methodology’s,” said Cassidy Phillips founder of Trigger Point Technologies.
ART is a combination of examination and treatment. The ART provider uses his or her 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.
TPT products offer a myofascial release technique based off of compression, bringing additional blood flow and oxygen to general areas of the body defined by either Trigger Point Technologies homecare methodologies or by the ART practitioner.
This combination will allow individuals to bridge the gap between the clinical office and the home. With the two forms of therapy working together an athlete or someone that’s dealing with chronic pain will be enabled to get ahead of the curve and assist their therapist in the process of healing.
It’s as if the TPT tools are the toothbrush and the ART Practitioner is the dentist, neither are trying to replace one another rather they are complimenting one another.
ART treatment protocols encompass over 500 specific moves that are unique to ART. They allow providers to identify and correct the specific problems that are affecting each individual patient. TPT products take a more general approach, treating specific areas with products that are designed to mirror the feeling of an actual hand. The specific ART moves are clearly defined and are irreplaceable. The TPT products assist with additional blood flow and oxygen to aid in the recovery and preventative maintenance process pre, post or during ART treatments.
“You will soon see additional information on the tptherapy.com website regarding the relationship between ART and TPT. It is TPT’s objective to give our visitors the best form of therapy possible, this is why we’ve chosen to associate ourselves with Mike Leahy and his team of ART practitioners,” say’s Phillips
