Active Release Technique

ART is a patented treatment type that often delivers immediate results for “incurable” issues.

Active Release Technique (ART) is one of the only effective treatments for numerous soft-tissue and overuse injuries such as repetitive strain injuries, carpal tunnel syndrome, tennis elbow, headaches, back pain, plantar fasciitis and numerous other conditions – in fact, ART is able to quickly and permanently resolve these conditions!

What is ART?

ART is a patented, state-of-the-art movement based massage system that focuses on the removal of scar tissue. Because of its immediate effectiveness, ART is used extensively with top US and Canadian athletes, but can treat almost any soft tissue injury.

ART has been known to effectively treat:

  • Repetitive Strain Injuries (RSI) – not uncommon with
    those who spend long hours in front of a computer and
    often (inaccurately) believed incurable.
  • Headaches
  • Back pain
  • Nerve entrapments
  • Shin splints
  • Tendonitis
  • Sciatica
  • Plantar Fasciitis
  • Tendonitis
  • Many joint issues

Why haven’t I heard of it?

While highly popular in the USA and Canada, only a limited number of therapists in Australia are qualified as ART practitioners. In fact, Health Place is one of the only practices in Brisbane that has qualified ART practitioners.
