About Active Release Technique®
Every session is a combination of an examination and an adjustment.
The ExaminationI’ll use my hands to evaluate the texture, tightness and movement of muscles, fascia, tendons and ligaments. If scar tissue is present, I’ll be able to feel it because it will be preventing soft tissues from moving properly. This can cause reduced range of motion, loss of strength and even pain. If nerve tissue is trapped, there may be tingling, numbness and weakness as well.
