Active Release Techniques (ART)

ART 1.png

Known in short as ART, it is a non-invasive diagnostic and treatment system precisely engineered to locate and quickly resolve soft-tissue tension via the removal of fibrosis/adhesions which can develop in tissues as a result of overload due to repetitive use and other injuries. 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 3 fold:

  1. to restore free and unimpeded motion of all soft tissues

  2. to release entrapped nerves, vasculature and lymphatics

  3. to re-establish optimal texture, resilience and function of soft tissues.
