The ART / Ironman program has become the most successful project of its kind. It was originally conceived to provide a venue for ART providers to gain experience at premier endurance sporting events around the world and hundreds of ART providers have done so. After months of planning and re-negotiating with the World Triathlon Corporation, ART has developed a new program. We want to take this opportunity to update you on the changes.
It is a REQUIREMENT that providers participate ALL DAYS of the Ironman Event they wish to attend. Please be courteous to your other providers and athletes and only commit if you are able to fully participate.

Ironman Treatment Team Flashback
We’ve got something special planned for St. Louis!
ART has set up a special field trip in conjunction with Logan University during our upper extremity seminar this November!
On the Friday afternoon of the seminar we’ll be traveling to the Logan science building.
ART has been invited to the Anatomy Lab where Dr. D. Robert Kuhn will go over the prosection of upper extremity musculature, including some nerve entrapments! The lab will also be open if attendees would like to examine different body types.
We’ll also check out the diagnostic ultrasound with one of the Logan professors. Various conditions and how they can be diagnosed via the ultrasound will be demonstrated and explained.
This special event is only open to participants of the upper extremity seminar who are paid in full.
Course dates are November 13-16 2014. Click here to sign up.
Dr. Leahy and ART announce a new course – Complex Protocols!
Active Release Techniques treatments address problems in individual tissues as well as in between tissues. One tissue or structure can affect another structure biomechanically and it can also affect the other structure directly. The Complex Protocols address this by identifying problems with motion, pressure or tension between adjacent tissues. This course is only open to full body certified providers.
"The CP class is a great addition to the existing ART skill set. Students were impressed about how much they can actually feel the relative motion between two adjacent structures. Dr. Leahy created Complex Protocols out of necessity in an effort to improve the ability for structures to slide next to each other independently. Students in class were amazed with how much they can actually feel. Those of us who have used it can’t imagine practicing without it. It's a game changer just like the Long Tract Nerve class was when it first came out. Most everyone in the class immediately thought of patients they could apply it to." –Sophie Brodeur, DC
