Active Release Technique®

What is Active Release?

 

Active Release Techniques® a state of the art, hands-on systemthat treats problems related to soft tissue (muscles, ligaments, tendons, fascia and nerves). Thisnon-invasive healing procedure locates and breaks down scartissue and adhesions that are a result ofsoft-tissue injuries. Many daily activities exhibit repetitive stress and scar tissueis formed. This creates symptoms of pain, stiffness, decreased range of motion, numbness and weakness.

 

ART® allows practitioners to identify the source of problem and treat soft tissues in a way that will restore proper function and allow you to work, play & perform at your best. ART® has become one of the most sought after and successful treatments for soft tissue injuries.

 

 

Why do I need ART®?

 

ART® is needed when soft tissues become injured. Repetitive strain, acute injury or even constant pressure on a tissue can cause injury. Once injured, our body produces dense, tough scar tissue called adhesions in the affected area. Adhesions alter what is normal for a tissue. Without treating the adhesions, the scar tissue builds up and as a result, there is a there is a decreased range of motion, weakness, pain and possibly numbness and tingling.

 

ART® helps anyone who leads an active lifestyle or sits at a computer all day. 

 

Soft tissue injury exists in just about all of us!

 

Treatment

 

An ART treatment isperformed by applying a specific tension to an adhesion while lengthening the tissue. This allows the tissue to re-gain its normal texture, tightness and movement, thus, alleviating the symptoms. Treatments take between 5 to 15 minutes and comfort level varies by each individual. At times ART can be described as mildly uncomfortable but the therapeutic benefits easily outweigh any tenderness felt during a treatment.

 

Please wear clothes that allow us to comfortablly reach the affected area or bring/wear a tank top or pair of shorts to your treatments.
