ASTR Certification Renewal
Why renew your certification?
Certification renewal is an important part of keeping ASTR clinicians up to date with new findings and research.
New Findings: The ASTR specialty is dynamic. It is constantly changing and advancing to better meet society’s need for fast, non-invasive, long-term pain relief.
Research: The ASTR team works on a daily basis to maintain ASTR’s position as the most cutting-edge specialty in the healthcare industry. Through research and experimentation, our team is constantly developing new theories, methodology, tools, and devices.
Access: Maintaining an active ASTR certification allows a clinician use of ASTR and all its associated titles, trademarks, and patents.
Clinicians must renew their ASTR certifications before the expiration dates. ASTR certified healthcare providers can renew their certifications by completing one of the following options every two years:
- Watching ASTR educational videos
- Attending at least one Advanced Soft Tissue Release conference
Expired ASTR Certification:
If a clinician is unable or unwilling to renew their ASTR certification, they will no longer be able to use ASTR, ASTRs, Advanced Soft Tissue Release, and Advanced Soft Tissue Release Specialist titles, trademarks, and patents after the certification expires. Additionally, distribution of ASTR materials or claiming to be a certified ASTR provider are prohibited when certification is not renewed.
If a clinician is unable to renew his/her ASTR certification due to extenuating circumstances, contact our office, and the course of action will be determined on a case-by-case basis.
