Active Release Technique (ART)

What is ART?


Active Release Technique (ART) is a hands on, non-invasive treatment that helps locate and treat problems with muscles, tendons, fascia (connective tissue), ligaments, and nerves.


Those affected by musculoskeletal conditions can benefit from ART. Musculoskeletal conditions are often the result of muscular overuse, muscle spasms, scar tissue build up, and loss of function of the structure.


ART involves the practitioner putting pressure on the injured area and maintaining contact while the patient actively moves the affected structure. This treatment helps release muscle adhesions/scar tissue that could be causing pain, decreasing flexibility and range of motion, and/or causing nerve entrapment.
