Active Release Technique (A.R.T.)

Active Release Technique or A.R.T. is a hands-on therapy, a form of myofascial release, that addresses the muscles, tendons, ligaments, and connective tissues. It is an excellent treatment option for sports injuries, repetitive strain injuries, or injuries sustained in a car accident.

Scar tissue can form in muscles over time, from a sudden injury, or from repetitive strain. A.R.T. uses motion to lengthen the muscles, while the scarred tissue is held in place, thus gradually breaking down the scar tissue to be absorbed into the body’s blood stream. The body will then lay down new muscle fibres, in the proper alignment for the body’s health.

Dr. Berry is currently on maternity leave and will be returning in mid March. Dr. Foot is covering her maternity leave.
Dr. Berry came to practicing chiropractic medicine after over a decade of teaching yoga and working as a professional sea-kayak guide. Her profound curiosity about human anatomy, physiology and biomechanics compelled her to become a doctor. Dr. Berry graduated from the Canadian Memorial Chiropractic College, in Toronto, ON, with clinical honors. Chelsea approached her education with the intent to translate information about disease, injury, health and wellness to her patients in a way that is accessible and empowering. Every new patient session begins with a discussion of the problem and goals followed by a detailed assessment. Chelsea specializes in the assessment and treatment of conditions involving joints, muscles, and the nervous system tissue of the spine. This includes all neuromuscular disorders ranging from a lumbar disc herniation to a simple ankle sprain. She typically uses a combination of soft tissue therapy, joint mobilizations, spinal manipulation, exercise prescription, postural advice and improved ergonomics.

Dr. Berry wants to help to educate you about your body and to assist you in moving towards your personal definition of optimal health. Her aim is to enable clients to return to their desired activities and hobbies as quickly as possible.

Chelsea has been profoundly impacted through her experiences with yoga and meditation and always has a good book recommendation for those seeking to augment hands on care. With her free time Chelsea enjoys adventure travel, rock climbing, bicycle commuting and sea kayaking.

Chiropractic care has been an integral part of Dr. Foot’s life since she received her first chiropractic treatment from her father the day she was born. At the age of five, she declared that she wanted to be a chiropractor just like him. However, her awareness of the benefits of chiropractic care grew immensely in her teens when she received regular chiropractic care for various injuries associated with figure skating.

Dr. Foot went on to compete on the McGill Figure Skating Team while she completed her Bachelor of Physiology degree at McGill University, in Montreal, Quebec. She then moved to Portland, Oregon to complete her chiropractic studies at the University of Western States. She graduated in 2012 with Summa Cum Laude honours as valedictorian of her class.

Dr. Foot designs individualized treatment plans to meet the goals of her patients and combines diversified chiropractic care with ART ® (Active Release Technique), exercise prescription and postural/ergonomic advice. Dr. Foot believes that having well-informed patients creates the best treatment outcomes and she encourages patients to actively participate in their own care.
