Active Release Techniques® (A.R.T.) is a soft tissue treatment for muscle, nerves, ligaments, fascia and tendons injuries. It is great for treating overuse issues such as micro traumas, hypoxia injuries, collisions, pulls, and tears. These injuries can cause dense scar tissue to form and restrict full range of motion or entrap nerves. A.R.T. treats these conditions by using the hands to feel the tissue and treat using precise tension and specific movements to break up the scar tissue.
