What is Active Release Technique (ART)?

  • Active Release Techniques (ART) is a non-surgical system of diagnosing and treating adhesion within muscles, fascia, tendons and ligaments.
  • ART utilizes principles of friction and tension to actually "tear" or "shear" adhesion away from muscles, fascia, tendons and ligaments of the human body.
  • The word "Active" refers to the fact that "active motion" of the patient is required to develop tension on the adhesion.
