Who created ART?

Active Release Techniques (ART) was developed, refined, and patented by P. Michael Leahy, DC, CCSP, a Doctor of Chiropractic based in Colorado Springs, Colorado.

Dr. Leahy noticed that his patients’ symptoms seemed to be related to changes in their soft tissues that could be felt by hand. By observing how muscles, fascia, tendons, ligaments and nerves responded to different types of work, Dr. Leahy was able to develop a treatment system that consistently resolves over 90% of his patients’ problems.
