What is ART®?

Active Release technique, or 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. ART® addresses the formation and build-up of dense scar tissue accumulated during overuse injuries that can cause a loss of strength or range of motion, and can create pain or nerve symptoms. ART® is used to break-up and remodel this tissue so that joints, muscles, and nerves can move freely.


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®.


Additionally, athletes around the country benefit from ART® treatment before and after competitions and races to improve flexiblity and decrease pain.  


During an ART® session, the texture, tightness, and movement of muscles, fascia, tendons, ligaments, and nerves is evaluated. Abnormal tissues are treated by combining precisely directed tension with very specific patient movements.


These treatment protocols - over 500 specific moves - are unique to ART® and allow providers to identify and correct the specific problems that are affecting each individual patient.
