Active Release Technique
A.R.T. is a soft-tissue therapy that breaks up adhesions to increase blood supply (and oxygen) to your muscles. It loosens deeply integrated chronic tension so you experience less pain, increased athletic performance, and a renewed sense of well-being. http://www.activerelease.com/what_patients.asp
Benefits of Active Release Techniques
- Increased Flexibility. Muscles are easy to stretch, fascias are not. Sometimes your flexibility is limited by tight fascia tissues and soft tissue work can help loosen these tissues.
- Increased Muscle Quality. Higher quality muscles perform better and endure longer with less pain.
- Fewer Injuries. Increased muscle quality and flexibility naturally prevent injuries from physical activities.
