Active Release Technique

Often referred to as the Gold Standard of soft tissue treatment, Active Release Technique (ART) is widely used by professional athletes as well as everyday athletes and weekend warriors.

Active Release Technique releases nerve and blood vessels trapped beneath adhesions through movement of the tissues. Because scar tissue and other adhesions build up around overused or injured muscles, the muscles eventually become weaker which changes the function and movement of the joints. Eventually, the nerves become compressed and the blood supply decreases, which is when you begin to experience limited movement and pain.
