What is Active Release Techniques — ART?
Active Release Techniques, or ART, is used to treat a wide variety of soft tissue and repetitive-motion injuries that haven’t responded well to other forms of sports therapy.
The therapy is also often performed on those whose job may put repetitive strain on the joints and muscles of the body. Others use it to describe a general category of massage and many methods such as deep tissue massage, myofascial release and trigger-point therapy as well as osteopathic techniques, cranial-sacral techniques and many more can be used to work with various medical conditions. The knowledge acquired and demonstrated in this course will be applicable in the clinical setting of a massage therapist.
Massage is generally considered part of complementary and alternative medicine. Massage Therapy or ART may only represent one piece of your puzzle, but it can definitely play an important role in your recovery or as a preventative maintenance routine when combined with other self-care practices. ART treatments can treat such of a wide variety of physical problems because they cover over 400 structures, and they're effective because they tackle many of the ways that muscles and soft tissues can cause pain. This massage focuses on areas of tight muscle fibers that can form in your muscles after injuries or overuse. Individual clients, either directly, or through an insurance plan, pay for massage therapy services.
