Active Release Techniques (ART)
A soft tissue system/movement based massage technique that treats problems with muscles, tendons, ligaments, fascia and nerves. Painful conditions can be resolved quickly and efficiently with ART. These conditions all have one important thing in common: they are often a result of overused muscles.
Every ART session is a combination of examination and treatment. As ART providers we uses our 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 movements.
These treatment protocols - over 1,000 specific moves - are unique to ART. They allow providers to identify and correct the specific problems that are affecting each individual patient.
