Active Release Techniques (ART)
The Active Release Technique (ACT) is the gold standard in soft-tissue care. It is a non-invasive treatment system precisely engineered to locate and quickly resolve soft-tissue disorders.
Through ART, millions have discovered that they do not have to “just live with” pain, restricted movement, or endure tedious treatment regimens for a chance at full recovery.
When Is ART Beneficial?
Whether it’s a new injury or an injury that has bothered you for years the Active Release Techniques (ART) is useful in relieving pain and increasing your range of motion. This is done through breaking up scar tissue, adhesions, trigger points, and "knots" in soft tissues like muscles, ligaments, tendons, fascia and nerves.
ART can improve your circulation, release entrapped nerves, and improve the flexibility of the muscle and surrounding fascia. It is valuable alongside adjustments because your bones go where your muscles tell them to go. When your muscles are neither too tight nor too lax it will help the body stay in alignment.
Your whole body can benefit from using these effective gentle techniques.
