Active Release Technique

Health Check

Active Release Technique ® (ART) is a patented soft tissue system/movement based massage approach used to treat problems with muscles, tendons, ligaments, connective tissue and nerves. These problems generally arise from a single common cause: overuse!

The principle behind ART is the fact that muscles do not work properly in isolation. Muscles only work properly if the surrounding connective tissue functions properly too. Noteworthy is that the converse is equally true.

Over 30 years ago, while working with elite athletes, Dr. P. Michael Leahy developed ART. Due to his knowledge of engineering, anatomy, biomechanics, chiropractic training and observation skills, he found a way to help elite athletes recover quickly from soft tissue disorders and return to competition.

ART serves to treat headaches, back pain, carpal tunnel syndrome, shin splints, shoulder pain, sciatica, plantar fasciitis, knee problems, tennis elbow and many other conditions.
