What is ART®

Active Release Techniques® (ART®) is a patented soft tissue technique that treats problems with

muscles, tendons, ligaments, fascia (connective tissue), and nerves. As an ART® provider I evaluate the texture, tightness and movement of the affected soft tissue and treat

those areas using any of the over 500 protocols to tailor treatment specific to your needs. 


Abnormal tissues, such as shin splints, shoulder pain, sciatica, carpal tunnel syndrome, tennis elbow, plantar fasciitis, back pain and headaches are just a few of the conditions that can be treated using the ART® techniques.


The purpose of the ART® treatment is to:

  • to restore free and unimpeded motion of all soft tissues
  • to release entrapped nerves, vasculature and lymphatics
  • to re-establish optimal texture, resilience and function of soft tissues
