What is Active Release Technique (ART®)?

Your physiotherapist uses Active Release Technique (ART®) as a patented, scientifically-based soft tissue system. Every aspect of your ART treatment is customized for you using movement-based massage. This specialized technique is ideal for treating problems that impact your muscles, tendons, fascia, ligaments, and nerves.

Over 500 unique movements combine with specialized massage techniques to make ART both incredibly unique, customized, and effective.

How Effective is Active Release Technique (ART)?

Active Release Technique is one of the top effective methods for soft tissue release. As a result, many athletes use ART to expedite healing and get them back into the game. ART is also commonly used to improve athletic performance.

The soft tissue movement-based massage method focuses on relieving tissue tension by removing fibrosis and adhesions that develop in tissues. This is especially effective for overused soft tissues and repetitive use injuries. Many patients find that ART helps them recover from muscular weakness, aching, tingling, numbness, and burning sensations.

In fact, many patients at Hillcrest Physiotherapy find Active Release Therapy is an effective way to resolve soft tissue issues very quickly and, in most cases, permanently.
