20 French Chiropractors on our kick off course for France


We have now started up with our post educational soft tissue course program in Paris, France. What a great success it was. French Chiropractors and students from various locations in France attended the course.  A special thanks to Joan Montserrat for helping out organizing everything.

Clinicians in France will now be able to follow our modules twice a year. Next course on the program for Paris is another Upper Extremity. This is due to our waiting list for this course module. We will run our next Upper Extremity course from the 1st to 4th of December 2016, followed by Spine during the spring.


If you have any questions concerning our courses in France, please contact Katrin van der Lagen on katrin@activerelease.no

Just some examples


Chris Senior

Had a great time attending a Nicolai van der Lagen ART Lower Extremity course, very challenging but very rewarding few days. Would highly recommend to any Sports Massage Therapists/Soft Tissue Therapists wanting to continue to learn, improve both hand skills and knowledge base.

Shane is an integral part of my performance team and he has definitely added to my game over the past 3 years. His skills as a Sports Chiropractor & Active Release Techniques (ART®) Provider ensure that I am prepared physically for each round I play. I believe working with Shane is helping me to prevent injuries and will hopefully lengthen my career.

Last course of 2015 held at HQ in Moss


It was time to wrap up this year’s course schedule with Spine course in Moss, Norway. Course participants had backgrounds such as Manual Therapy, Chiropratic and Physiotherapy. Two of our course participants came all the way from Slovakia. We also had clinicians from UK and Finland besides the Norwegian delegates.

Our course venue at the HQ is designed to host medium classes for hands on training, and it work very well. Demonstrations are done on the flat screens and in the groups by the treatment tables. Anatomical applications are used during the whole class for guidance. Clear instructions, relevant clinical relationship and hands on training are what you can expect from a course held by our Instructors. You might also discover that most of your training partners at our courses are highly dedicated and motivated clinicians seeking to help their patients and athletes as optimal as they can.
