Dr. Brett Coapland is the founder and clinical director of Performance Health Spine and Sport Therapy, and is a licensed chiropractor, Certified Strength and Conditioning Specialist (CSCS) and certified Active Release Techniques® (ART) provider.
What is Active Release Techniques® (ART)?
ART® is a patented, state-of-the-art soft tissue system that treats problems with muscles, tendons, ligaments, fascia and nerves. It is an advanced system of diagnosis and manual treatment for soft tissue disorders resulting from:

Tension headaches, carpal tunnel syndrome, shin splints, golfers and tennis elbow, back pain, sciatica, rotator cuff syndrome, tendinosis, knee pain, and most sports injuries are some of the many conditions that can be resolved quickly, and most often permanently, with ART®. These conditions all have one important thing in common – they often result from injury to over-used muscles.

What can massage therapy do for you?
Do you have pain or restricted movement from an accident or injury?
Are you sore from repetitive motions on the job?
Could you use a “timeout” from everyday stress?
Are you looking for ways to maintain a healthy lifestyle?
Massage therapy can help with all of these. Many people still think of massage as a luxury, or something they might treat themselves with but there are so many benefits that are good for you like:
- Improving circulation & digestion
- Reducing anxiety
- Lowering blood pressure
- Boosting immune system
- Relieving pain
- Improving energy
- Increasing flexibility
Massage is especially good after exercise to help flush out lactic acid (the stuff that makes you sore), improve blood flow, and relieve tightness in your muscles so your body can recover more quickly, maintain a balance between strength and flexibility and reduce the likelihood of an injury.
Studies show that massage therapy effectively reduces stress and since 80% of disease is stress related massage can help you maintain a healthy lifestyle along with eating right and staying active.
Taking care of yourself now saves you $$$ in the long run. So by investing in your health with a regular program of massage you are sure to receive a significant return on the investment you make in yourself.
Our therapists are nationally certified and state licensed with nearly two decades of combined experience and more importantly we have a passion for what we do.
That manifests itself in our commitment to continued education, attention to detail and dedication to the wellness of our clients.
We believe each body deserves unique attention. Every massage starts with a conversation about you and we’ll customize your session to target your needs and requests. After your massage, we will share self care techniques so you can continue the healing process.
We are conveniently located on Rt. 4 in Chichester and offer flexible hours for even the busiest schedules. For more information visit our website @ http://www.chichestermassage.com or give us a call (603) 798-4669
