What is ART?
Active release technique (ART) allows a practitioner to diagnose and treat soft-tissue injuries. The purpose of ART is to relieve the body of soft-tissue tension and/or scar tissue, which may restrict blood flow and nerve function. This can occur by sudden or chronic injuries. Each injury may be resolved quickly and permanently with ART.
How does ART work?
The ART professional uses his or her hands to assess the texture, tightness, and movement of muscles, fascia, tendons, ligaments, and nerves. Abnormal tissues are treated by the precise application of pressure combined with specific patient movements. These treatment techniques may be adjusted to the specific problems of the individual patient.
Who can perform ART?
A certified ART practitioner must complete a series of post-graduate courses.
What can I expect from ART?
Since this technique is highly specific to each tissue injury, treatment sessions take approximately 10–15 minutes, and patients can improve in as few as two sessions.
Does ART hurt?
ART is a non-invasive treatment, which is proven to be both safe and effective. Symptoms are often more noticeable during treatment, which is an indication that the problem tissue has been identified. Symptoms usually subside within minutes after treatment.
