Active Release Technique (ART)
ART is a 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) cause painful scar tissue due to:
1. Acute injuries such as pulls, tears, collisions
2. Accumulation of small tears seen in many athletes
3. Prolonged poor posture and repetitive work activities
