What is Active Release Technique?
The Most Efficient Treatment For Your
Active Release Techniques (ART) has become one of most sought after soft-tissue treatments in the world today. ART is your best bet for resolving chronic soft-tissue pains and injuries.
ART is a patented, soft-tissue manipulation that treats problems with muscles, tendons, ligaments, fascia and nerves. It is a non-invasive process that locates and breaks down the scar tissue and adhesions that accompany soft-tissue injuries.
The power of Active Release Techniques lies in its ability to effectively resolve chronic injuries that have not responded to other forms of therapy.
ART is a hands-on soft-tissue technique that simultaneously locates and breaks-up scar tissue. ART combines motion by the patient with a hands-on technique that releases the adhesions between tissue layers. This process restores mobility and relative motion to the soft-tissue layers, increases circulatory function, and increases neurological function by breaking and releasing restrictive adhesions.
Every ART session is actually a combination of examination and treatment. The ART provider uses his or her 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 patient movements.
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.
