Active Release Technique (ART)



Active Release Technique (ART) addresses soft tissue conditions and injuries via body manipulation and movement. Affected areas are targeted and isolated specifically to increase blood flow and accelerate healing. ART can be used to treat pain in the muscles, ligaments, tendons, and even nerves.

Active Release Technique breaks up adhesions in the body, which is really just dense scar tissue that forms when you have an injury in your muscles or connective tissue. This can reduce flexibility or range of motion, cause stiffness in your neck, back, elbows, or knees, decreased strength, or lead to tingling or numbness. By breaking up scar tissue, muscles and joints can more more freely without pain and/or stiffness.

During your session, we will first identify where the scar tissue is located in the body, then we will manipulate the area to break up the problematic scar tissue and increase blood flow to the affected area. This will start to immediately promote healing and reduce some of the symptoms you’re struggling with.

If you’re curious how Active Release Technique can help you feel and perform better, stop in and see us. For some people, it only takes one session to feel better, but depending on your injury or condition, it may take multiple sessions. We can help answer any questions you may have about ART before your session!
