The Gold Standard in Muscle + Nerve Treatment
The Active Release Techniques (ART) promote the combination of soft tissue techniques with complementing movement by the patient.
It is designed to relieve the damage caused by repetitive motion and overuse of muscles, and can be used as treatment for other similarly damaged soft tissue as well, like carpal tunnel syndrome, shin splints, tendinitis and temporomandibular joint disorder, just to name a few.
How is ART different?
Most likely (though not all the time) you have already tried various other treatment methods. But it’s not enough to just treat Soft Tissue Dysfunction with any rub down. It is essential to be precise about where and when it is needed to release tension, scar tissue, and adhesions that cause changes in peripheral sensations or the loss of function (e.g. the ankle joint).
ART is about restoring soft tissue function, reducing neural tension, decrease fascia friction, transmit movement from muscle-to-bone attachment and the facilitation of muscle glide.
Who should use ART?
ART is utilised by a majority of Sportsmen/ Women, it is also commonly used by tradesmen and people who have experienced Chronic Injury, Repetitive Strain Injury, Post Sport Injury, WorkPlace Injury, and/or Ergonomic Induced Injury (e.g. Mouse Arm).
