Active Release Technique (ART)

Home / Techniques / Active Release Technique (ART)

Lengthen and strengthen your muscles.

ART is a movement based massage technique that treats a variety of problems with muscles, fascia, ligaments, tendons and nerves. Acute conditions (pulls, tears) and chronic conditions (poor posture, repetitive stress injuries) can cause tough, dense scar tissue to build up and the muscles become shorter and weaker. As a result, the tissues suffer from decreased blood supply, pain, and poor mobility. ART works to restore the smooth movement of tissues by breaking up scar tissue and releasing trapped nerves and blood vessels. This is done by applying firm, steady pressure while the muscles and joints are activated.
