Services: Active Release Technique

Active Release Technique

ART (Active Release Technique) is a movement-based massage technique that treats dysfunctions in the muscles, tendons, ligaments, fascia and nerves. Headaches, back pain, carpal tunnel syndrome, shin splints, shoulder pain, sciatica, plantar fasciitis, knee problems, and tennis elbow are just a few of the many conditions that can be resolved quickly and permanently with ART. An ART treatment session is actually a combination of examination and treatment. The ART provider uses his or her hands to evaluate and effectively treat abnormal soft tissues, combining precisely directed tension with very specific movements. These treatment protocols are unique to ART. The physiotherapist will identify and correct the specific problems that are affecting each individual client. ART has become one of the most sought after soft tissue treatments in the world today. The PGA tour, many professional sports teams, and all Ironman triathlon events utilize certified ART providers as an integral part of their medical staff.
