Active Release Technique (ART):

Active Release Techniques (ART) are a soft tissue method that focusses on releasing tissue tension but the removal of fibrosis/adhesions which can develop in tissues as a result of overload due to repetitive use.  These disorders may lead to muscular weakness, numbness, aching, tingling and burning sensations.


ART is used to treat symptoms with muscles, tendons, ligaments, fascia, and nerves.  Its design is three fold:

  1. To restore free and unimpeded motion of all soft tissues
  2. T release entrapped nerves, vasculature and lymphatics
  3. To reestablish optimal texture, resilience and function of soft tissues

ART and Performance;

ART is effective for active people of every level.  It can provide patients with a means to enhance their sports performance by identifying and releasing restrictions that reduce their performance in their chosen activity.
