Active Release Technique©

Active Release Technique© (ART) is an advanced form of soft tissue therapy that specifically targets the sites of injury. Unlike other forms of therapies which simply aim to relax a tight muscle, ART works to release tissues that are bound together (adhesions), which may cause limitations of movement or even entrap nerves. ART is not massage therapy. It is a technique that requires a thorough understanding of anatomy and movement by the practitioner, as well as a sensitivity of touch that is only gained through experience. Active Release Technique can restore optimal mobility and improve performance in the athlete and non-athlete alike.
