Active Release Therapy (ART)
You are here:

Active Release Therapy (ART) is an advanced and highly effective form of myofascial release that treats soft tissue to relieve tension, adhesions, and scar tissue that develops from overload and repetitive use injuries. If you experience muscle weakness, numbness, aching, tingling, or burning sensations then ART may be right for you.

How Active Release Therapy Works

ART is a manual therapy technique that treats muscle, tendon, ligament, fascia, and nerve symptoms. When left untreated pain, stiffness, and difficulty moving prohibits you from participating in daily activities. Our registered therapists take a whole-body approach to address the root of the problem. With that in mind our goal is to:

  1. Restore full and unimpeded motion to all soft tissue
  2. Release any entrapped nerves and lymphatics
  3. Return to optimal function and resilience of soft tissue
