What is ART?

A Quick Summary of Active Release Techniques (ART).
Active Release Techniques (ART) is a movement based massage system, which is extremely effective for accurately defining and effectively treating repetitive strain injuries and strain/sprain injuries. This technique is performed by licensed medical professionals who have completed the post-graduate training courses and passed rigorous written and practical examinations. ART is one of the only medical techniques in North America with a federal process patent.

What is Active Release Technique (ART)?
ART is a patented, state of the art soft tissue system/movement based massage technique that treats problems with 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. These conditions all have one important thing in common: they are often a result of overused muscles.

What is an ART treatment like?
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. 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. ART is not a cookie-cutter approach.
