Active Release Technique (ART) is a patented, state-of-the-art soft tissue system 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. These conditions all have one important thing in common: they are often a result of overused muscles.
About Rolfing - Developed over 50 years ago by Dr. Ida Rolf, Ph.D., Rolfing structural integration works on the web-like complex of connective tissue (fascia) to release, realign and balance the whole body.
It can resolve pain and discomfort from many different causes, including those related to the lingering effects of trauma, back pain, repetitive motion injury and aging.
Deep Tissue - releases the chronic patterns of tension in the body through slow strokes and deep finger pressure on the contracted areas, either following or going across the grain of muscles, tendons and fascia. It is called deep tissue, because it also focuses on the deeper layers of muscle tissue.
You would need to find a therapist specifically trained in ART and/or Rolfing to try those. Most certified/licensed massage therapists can do deep tissue work, however, each therapists' version of this is greatly dependent on their individual skills and style. What may be "deep" to one person, may be "fluff and buff" to another.
My $.02 (as a LCMT) is to find a therapist that you are comfortable with and enjoy their work. Don't be hesitant to communicate what areas you need worked, how much pressure you prefer and what your goals are. They should be willing to customize each and every session to what you need on that particular day. Good luck!
