Active Release Technique is distinctly unique from any other soft tissue technique. Different to sports massage, foam rolling, cross-friction and trigger point therapy, ART uses specifically applied tension combined with optimal movement to restore function.
When your muscles become injured, inactive, or overused, evidence shows these muscles (and surrounding structures) become damaged and form dense scar tissue.
Consequently, muscles that could once move freely become stiff, weak and painful lending to a downward spiral of injury.
ART is shown to break down this dense scar tissue and help restore optimal, pain-free movement. Sciatica, back pain, plantar fasciitis, shoulder pain, headaches, carpal tunnel syndrome, and knee pain are just some of the conditions that can be resolved quickly and permanently using ART.
