ART is a patented, state of the art soft tissue system/movement based massage technique 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 muscle
What is the history of Active Release Techniques?
ART has been developed, refined, and patented by P. Michael Leahy, DC, CCSP. Dr. Leahy noticed that his patients’ symptoms seemed to be related to changes in their soft tissue that could be felt by hand. By observing how muscles, fascia, tendons, ligaments and nerves responded to different types of work, Dr. Leahy was able to consistently resolve over 90% of his patients’ problems. He now teaches and certifies health care providers all over the world to use ART.

I received my professional training at Seacoast Career Schools where I graduated from the 900 hour Massage Therapy program at the top of my class academically. I’m a member of the Maine Sports Massage Team and provided Sports Massage to finishers of the 2011 Boston Marathon.
I’m a life-long Maine resident and currently live with my wife and children in Arundel, where I also coach Little League, am a member of the Kennebunk Beach Triathlon Club. I’m a recreational triathlete, and have completed both the Peaks to Portland 2.4 mile open-water swim and the Beach to Beacon 10K Road Race. I’m currently training for a Half-Ironman Triathlon in 2012.

I received my 900 hour Professional Training from Seacoast Career Schools. I have volunteered as a Sports Massage Therapist at the Beach to Beacon 10k and the Maine Marathon – performing pre and post race massages.
I became interested in massage therapy after receiving massage services for an injury I sustained. I became a believer in not only the healing power but also the long-term benefits and injury prevention that massage provides, and wanted to personally help others in this way. I am particularly interested in helping athletes speed recovery times and maintain their active lifestyle.
