What is the ART treatment like?
Each ART session is a combination of examination and treatment. Dr. Flournoy uses his hands to evaluate the texture, tightness and movement of muscles, fascia, tendons, ligaments and nerves. Abnormal tissues are treated by combining precisely directed tension with very specific patient movements to help reduce inflammation, relieve pain, and increase range of motion.
