“Jeg deltok på mitt første kurs i Active Release Techniques (ART) med Nicolai van der Lagen i Moss i februar.
Det profesjonelle nivået på selve kurset med hensyn til faglig innhold og dyktige instruktører var imponerende.
ART er en meget systematisk måte å behandle bløtvev på, men ikke minst også et enestående verktøy i selve undersøkelsen og diagnostiseringen av mine spillere. En ekstra bonus er at kurset også inneholder spesifikk behandling av nerveentrapments.
Som fysioterapeut innenfor toppfotball, ser jeg nå på ART som et “must” og en missing link innenfor undersøkelse og behandling for alle terapeuter som driver med toppidrett spesielt, da utøvere krever raske resultater.
Den umiddelbare responsen fra spillerne taler for seg selv.
Jeg gleder meg allerede til neste kurs!“
Fredrik Birkemo, fysioterapeut Stabæk Fotball
“ART est la technique de tissu mou la plus complète et efficace que j’ai eu l’occasion d’apprendre. Je l’utilise quotidiennement, au cabinet comme en compétition. Le niveau technique et la précision acquise lors des séminaires m’ont fait travailler avec de nombreux champions du monde et permis d’intégrer des équipes de très haut niveau. Je recommande les séminaires à tout thérapeute qui a envie de se perfectionner, et ce, pas seulement dans le monde du sport.”
Joan MONTSERRAT, Chiropracteur, Spécialiste Sport & Artistique.

- ART is a must for any therapist wanting to get immediate results. It is a thorough, well taught course that improves anatomical and manual handling skills. Joe Hinnigan, Physiotherapist Everton FC
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.
In FC Midtjylland we take pride in being on the cutting edge when it comes to our work with the players in the team, we are very excited about our new found cooperation with ART Europe. Like the coaching staff around the team, the medical staff are always trying to improve their skills, and are always open to different approaches to the treatment and prevention of injury. With this new cooperation with ART®, we feel that we are now able to take our treatment of musculoskeletal disorders to a new level.
FC Midtjylland is very pleased to have been chosen as the setting of ART® education in Denmark, and are looking forward to a long term cooperation with ART® Europe.
ART® is a superb soft tissue, diagnostic and treatment modality which has shown time and time again to be effective in both the elite sport setting and general MSK therapy. The courses are highly recommended, practical based allowing you to incorporate the skills Monday morning!

ART® Europe has been running courses in Europe since 2009. We started up with running our courses in collaboration with Leeds Carnegie and Rhinos Rugby. Since then we have established many new course venues and professional collaborations in several European countries. You can now follow our course modules in the best sporting environments.
Active Release Techniques® has during these 5 years been able to set ground in Europe. More and more practitioners dealing with soft tissue injuries, prevention and performance enhancement are following our course modules. ART® is for many practitioners the “Missing Link” in their line of work. Some common remarks from course participants with many years of experience in treating top level players and athletes:
The basic premise is simple, just not easy. Shorten the tissue, apply a contact tension and lengthen the tissue or make it slide relative to the adjacent tissue. It’s as simple as playing a piano and just as difficult. We will teach you to find every tissue by touch and to make fast permanent changes in them. We will practice every single treatment protocol with you. You work on the instructor and we work on you so that you can learn at a much faster rate.
Be smart – Do ART!
Having been treated with ART® a few years ago and realising how effective it was made my mind up for a career change! I decided to do ART® Upper last year which was hard work but very rewarding at the end and the instructors Shane and Heather were awesome! I enjoyed it so much that I wanted achieve full body cert as soon as I could. Sadly there were no courses in the UK for lower body so took the plunge and travelled to Finland. This was a great decision! I got to meet like minded individuals from another part of Europe, look at some good scenery and also get taught by Nicolai and Katrin who were outstanding instructors. Im now looking forward to Spine in December hopefully with all the instructors mentioned above! If your looking for an easy course where you just turn up and get a certificate then do not even bother. If however your passionate about your profession ready to work hard and put in the extra hours to bring your clients the very best in soft tissue training then get involved. This is an awesome technique and its made even better because of the instructor team!
Rich Knight – London, UK
Just got back from the ART lower extremity in Finland yesterday! The course and instructors completely exceeded all my expectations! I was able to take the knowledge I learned and put it into action in the clinic today, and can already see how it is going to make such a difference for my patient care in the future! Can’t wait to do the next one!
