Graston Technique

Graston Technique is an instrument-assisted soft tissue mobilization technique that enables clinicians to effectively break down scar tissue and fascial restrictions. It is a technique that is successful in treating all soft tissue conditions, whether they are chronic, acute, or post surgical. The Graston Technique offers many advantages to the patient such as:

  • Decreased overall time of treatment
  • Fosters faster rehabilitation/recovery
  • Reduces need for anti-inflammatory medications
  • Resolves chronic conditions

Active Release Technique

Active Release Technique (ART) is a hands on, soft tissue technique that successfully locates and breaks up scar tissue and fascial adhesions/restrictions. “ART is a patented advanced, movement-based massage system, that is extremely effective for accurately locating the cause of soft-tissue conditions and effectively resolving (or greatly improving) over-use and sprain/strain conditions.”

My life has seriously been changed!

“I wouldn’t be where I am today without Ashley. I was in such acute pain with sciatica all the way down to my foot. I had burning nerve pain and restricted movement for nearly a year – I couldn’t even walk my dogs for 15 minutes without limping home and needing to ice myself for hours, and I couldn’t sit at my desk chair for more than 10 minutes at a given time. Even when I was lying in bed I was in pain as I fell asleep. It had taken a toll on my physically and mentally for so long I honestly felt like I was running out of options. I looked up IMS in Victoria and found Arbutus Physio and made an appointment with Ashley. I was EXTREMELY skeptical because I had tried everything at this point so I was at my last resort. My life has seriously been changed!!!! I have now gone an entire week without any pain whatsoever. I couldn’t even remember what it felt like to be normal until now. I walked my dogs for 2 hours last night and it felt like the greatest achievement. Thank you so much Ashley for giving me my mobility (and life) back!!!!”
