Active Release Technique (ART) is a soft tissue system/movement-based technique that treats problems with muscles, tendons, fascia, and nerves.
ART works very well for clients who enjoy sports which require repetitive movement (i.e. golf, ironman, tennis, etc.); and for clients who are required to maintain sustained postures such as sitting in an office.
The treatment includes an evaluation of the tightness, texture, and movement of muscles, fascia, tendons, and nerves. Abnormal findings are then treated by combining precisely directed tension while having the client move their arms, legs, or body in very specific movement patterns. These treatment protocols – over 500 specific moves – are unique to ART. They allow our therapists to identify and correct the specific concerns of each client.
