Active Release Technique

Active Release Technique is a patented, state-of-the-art soft tissue system/movement based massage technique that treats problems with muscles, tendons, ligaments, fascia and nerves. Headaches, back pain, carpal tunnel syndrome, shin splints, shoulder pain, sciatica, plantar fasciitis, knee problems, and tennis elbow are just a few of the many conditions that can be resolved quickly and permanently with ART. These conditions all have one important aspect in common: they are often a result of overused muscles.

What is an ART treatment like?

Every ART session is a combination of examination and treatment. The ART provider uses his or her hands to evaluate the texture, tightness, and movement of muscles, fascia, tendons, ligaments, and nerves. Abnormal tissues are treated by combining precisely directed tension with very specific patient movements. These treatment protocols – over 500 specific moves – are unique to ART and enable the therapists to identify and correct problems affecting specific soft tissues of each individual patient. It is a specialized approach to soft tissue mobilization/manual therapy to improve dysfunction.

ART sessions allow the therapists to identify and correct the specific problems that are affecting each individual patient. Art is not a cookie-cutter approach. ART is performed differently
