Per la prima volta ART verrà presentato in Italiano a Busto Arsizio, città in provincia di Varese sulla linea ferroviaria che collega Malpensa Aeroporto a Milano.
Dr. P. Michael Leahy ha ideato Active Release Techniques® più di 30 anni fa. ART® ha avuto inizio quando Dr. Leahy lavorava con atleti professionisti come un modo di trattare problematiche dei tessuti molli per permettere loro di tornare ad avere prestazioni di alto livello il più velocemente possibile.
Dr. Leahy ha studiato Ingegneria Aeronautica prima di diventare Dottore in Chiropratica nel 1984. Dall’osservazione degli atleti durante le loro prestazioni, si è presto reso conto che le sue conoscenze di ingegneria potevano ben conciliarsi con quelle chiropratiche di anatomia e biomeccanica per trattare le problematiche dei tessuti molli in modo rapido ed efficace per il ritorno alle gare.
Nel 1988 alcuni colleghi Chiropratici del Dr. Leahy lo hanno convinto a tenere un corso in cui insegnava la sua metodica di trattamento. La sala che era stata riservata per l’occasione fu inondata di dottori interessati ad apprendere questa nuova tecnica e poco dopo il Dr. Leahy iniziò a sviluppare un metodo di insegnamento sistematico per ART®.
We held our 2nd Upper Extremity module in Paris for 2016 the 1st to the 4th of December. The course was held at l’IFEC, Institut Franco-Européen de Chiropraxie, Ivry Sur Seine. The course participants were very eager and dedicated throughout the whole course. 90% of the participants passed their practical exam although the course was very intensive and demanding. Thank you so much to all participants for their overwhelming feedback. Good luck with your patients and athletes! Course Instructors: Nicolai van der Lagen and Ole R. Johansen (both from Norway, but teaching in French).
“Conclusion: If you’re a clinician, get out there and use the soft tissue techniques taught in these videos for the greater good of your patients and clients. Manual soft tissue treatments can be a game changer in terms of increasing your efficiency in treatment, and streamlining the total duration of patient care.”
The ART Lower Extremity level 1 course in Moss – Norway was a great success. Participants from The Netherlands, USA, Canada and Norway worked together for 4 intensive days at HQ Europe seminar room. Participant backgrounds: Chiropractors, Physiotherapists and Osteopaths.
During the Lower Extremity course participants work hands on with clinical approaches for a variety of diagnoses and cumulative soft tissue problems. Accurate handling with our tools of preference (our fingers and hands) are demonstrated and reviewed throughout the entire course.
The Upper Extremity course and the Long tract nerve entrapment course were held at Vasala Sport Institute in Tampere – Finland. This was the 8. time Team Europe held a course in Finland. The group of ART providers is growing in Finland. And what a group of clinicians! Participants on this course were Chiropractors, Physiotherapists and Sport Massage therapists.
The Upper Extremity module is by far the most complicated and probably also the most difficult. Participants work together with the Instructors for 4 intensive days. Proper hands on techniques are demonstrated from the fingers to the shoulder during the course.
Congratulations to all participants passing their exams at our ART Upper seminar with FC Midtjylland in Herning, Denmark, this weekend! Great course with great and dedicated therapists from Denmark. Thank you all for your wonderful feedback, and we are looking forward to see you again!
Good luck with using your new skills in your practice!
This sums up the course held in Dublin: “I absolutely loved the lower body ART workshop with Shane and Paul! I knew ART was great already and I’ve known for a while that it was something that i wanted to do. But the quality of the instructors and the well structured learning envoronment was a pleasant surprise! I’m already feeling excited about the upper body workshop next year! ART is a must for all bodyworkers or athletic trainers and coaches who want a quick and effective treatment modality that gives quick results! I honestly don’t think there is anything better out there!” Petter Sellberg
A fabulous course at a great venue with excellent service and back up of stadium staff.
The group of participants did a great job during the whole course. Many dedicated and skilled practitioners trained together to become more confident in treating and managing soft tissue conditions. Courses are intensive and do require a lot from the participants. Most did pass the exam, some will do a re-examination in a short while.

New input for our Instructors and Assistants in ART Team Europe. New protocols, alternated approaches and great reviewing for a couple of days.
HQ organize one Instructor meeting a year where important modifications and add on’s are demonstrated and reviewed together. We all want to to our best in what we do. This group of people invest a lot of time and puts a great deal of effort in their practice with their patients, and when teaching at our courses around in Europe. They all deserve credit for their effort in always trying to learn more so they can help their patients and athletes a bit better each time.
