Active Release Techniques

What is Active Release Techniques® (ART)?

Active Release Technique® is a patented, state of the art soft tissue system/movement based 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 Active Release Techniques®.

Overused muscles lead to chronic tension causing the formation of dense scar tissue in an affected area. This scar tissue binds up and ties down tissues that need to move freely. As scar tissue builds up, muscles become shorter and weaker, tension on tendons causes tendonitis, and nerves can become trapped. This can cause reduced range of motion, numbness, and weakness.

What is an Active Release Technique® treatment like?

Every Active Release Technique® session is actually a combination of examination and treatment. Abnormal tissues are treated by combining precisely directed tension with very specific patient movements to release and restore normal tissue texture, tension, and movement. These treatment protocols- over 500 specific moves- are unique to ART®. They allow providers to identify and correct the specific problems that are affecting each individual patient.
