Active Release Technique®

Active Release Technique®

Active Release Technique® (A.R.T.) is a highly effective soft tissue system/movement based massage technique used to help with overused muscles and injury recovery. It is applied in repeated patterns of examinations and treatments with a focus on the different textures and movements of the body.

A.R.T. is a state-of-the-art technique that utilizes massage therapy and touch in order to focus on the body’s soft tissue system. It can treat issues related to the muscles, nerves, fascia, ligaments, and tendons. In some more complex cases that involve abnormal tissues, the provider will use a variety of directed tensions and specified patient movements to reach the patient’s recovery goals.

A common pattern we see in all A.R.T. cases is that they are often the result of overused muscles. During A.R.T. treatment, the provider will feel the different textures and movements of the patient’s muscles, fascia, tendons, ligaments, and nerves. We do this through repeated patterns of examinations and treatments, focusing on the patient’s movements.
