ACTIVE RELEASE TECHNIQUE
ART® is a patented, state of the art soft tissue system - movement based massage technique that treats problems with muscles, tendons, ligaments, fascia and nerves. Headaches, back pain, carpal tunnel syndrome, shin splints, shoulder pain, sciatica, plantar fasciitis, knee problems, and tennis elbow are just a few of the many conditions that can be resolved quickly and permanently with ART. These conditions all have one important thing in common: they are often a result of overused muscles.
Over-used muscles (and other soft tissues) change in three important ways:
Acute conditions (pulls, tears, collisions, etc)
Accumulation of small tears (micro-trauma)
Not getting enough oxygen (hypoxia)READ MORE
