Deep message on my heel at my PT to get rid of the inflamation irritaded my condition. Would A.R.T. treatment be beneficial to me? It sounds similar to a deep message.

Deep tissue massage done skillfully can be very helpful but keep in mind that it must be done in conjunction with other treatments necessary to resolve the condition. Take the time to read Scott's Heel Pain Book n order to understand the full scope of treatment for PF.

The proponents of A.R.T. state that that is not a form of massage but am not sure why.
