Active Release Techniques
A.R.T. is a patented, state of the art soft tissue system based massage techniques that treats problems with muscles, tendons, ligaments, fascia and nerves. Some common conditions that can be resolved quickly with ART include headaches, back and neck pain, carpal tunnel syndrome, shin splints, shoulder pain, sciatica, plantar fasciitis, knee problems and tennis elbow. All of these conditions have one important thing in common: they are often a result of overused muscles causing repetitive strain injuries and pain. Your body then produces tough, dense scar tissue in the affected area. This scar tissue builds up and ties down tissues that need to move freely resulting in shorter and weaker muscles, tension on tendons causing tendonitis, and nerves becoming trapped. A.R.T. breaks down this dense scar tissue allowing your muscles and joints to move properly while relieving your pain.
