What is Active Release Technique

What is active release technique? A.R.T. is a form of soft tissue therapy that focuses on the treatment of the connective tissues of the body. Fascia is the thin connective tissue that holds the bones, organs, and muscles in place. Sometimes the fascia is what is causing your muscle or joint pain, and active release technique therapy targets that pain to eliminate it.

The fascia has many nerves in it, which means that when it is under stress, it can cause quite a bit of discomfort. When the fascia thickens and dries, it causes painful knots around bones and muscles. Active release technique involves manipulating and moving the affected body parts to promote healthy blood flow to the muscles, ligaments, tendons, and nerves. A.R.T. can be used to treat fascia pain, muscle groups, and tendons/ligaments.

We provide active release techniques in Torrance, CA, from experienced practitioners.
