ART® (Active Release Technique®) is a patented soft tissue treatment technique that contains over 500 treatment protocols and requires extensive training to obtain certification. ART® is a movement based soft tissue treatment technique, aimed at treating movement dysfunctions between muscles, nerves, ligaments, and fascia.
Many conditions, such as headaches, carpal tunnel syndrome, IT band syndrome, plantar fasciitis, shoulder impingement syndrome, golfer’s and tennis elbow, back pain, hip pain, and many other complaints are caused by overuse and misuse of these structures. ART® restores blood flow to injured areas, breaking down scar tissue adhesions, and reestablishes proper movement of soft tissue structures to relieve these common maladies.
