Active Release Techniques® Spine Level 2 is designed to provide instruction in anatomy, palpation, and treatment of soft-tissue disorders and associated articulations. This advanced course includes 75 protocols. Certification in Spine Level 1 is a prerequisite for this course.

ART® treatment utilizes manual techniques to move tissues and joints while under tension. The system allows for relative motion between the tissues and articulations.

The course emphasizes the manipulation of the neuromusculoskeletal system to diagnose and correct alterations in tissue texture, tension, movement, and function between tissues. All treatments protocols are designed to correct tissue alterations, assist the provider with articular adjustments, and ultimately shorten treatment regimens required to resolve a case. Evaluation and treatment occur simultaneously.

This seminar is split between two weekends; the first being October 2 - 3 and the second being October 10 - 11, 2020
