Active Release Technique (ART) is a soft tissue method that focuses on relieving tissue tension via the removal of fibrosis/adhesion that develops in tissue. It is usually used in treating adhesions, scarring or overused muscles. During ART a practitioner will break up or remove the fibrous adhesions using pressure and a stretching motion with their hands. ART is used to lessen tightness and increase mobility and blood flow to the muscles.
