Active Release Techniques
Active Release Techniques (ART) are a soft tissue method that focuses on relieving tissue tension via the removal of fibrosis/adhesions which can develop in tissues as a result of overload due to repetitive use. These disorders may lead to muscular weakness, numbness, aching, tingling and burning sensations.
Who may use it?
ART therapy is used in treating lower back pain, shoulder strain, frozen shoulders, tension headaches or more complex problems like shin splints, tennis elbow Bursitis, sciatica and carpal tunnel syndrome etc.
What are the benefits of active release techniques?
- Relieve tight muscles: The ART therapy sessions are a way to relieve tight muscles and nerve trigger points; thus beginning the healing process and relieving joint stress and improving your quality of life.
- Natural Treatment: The best thing about ART therapy is that it is a natural treatment, which works like deep tissue massage and patients can feel the stress of joints and nerves relieved, without having to use any kind of medication.
- Qualified practitioners: ART therapy compounds some very specific hand-and-finger-massage movements which our highly qualified practitioners tailor to the condition and extent of the problems of patient under treatment.
