Where can I find more information about ART?

We have recently published the first book about Active Release Techniques, written specifically for the general public.

Release Your Pain - Resolving Repetitive Strain Injuries with Active Release Technique s® (ART®) is an informative, easy-to-read book, that helps you to understand the true cause of repetitive strain injuries.

Did you know that many common therapies (such as medication, physiotherapy, chiropractic treatment, massage, electrical muscle stimulation, rest, exercise, and surgery) have all failed to effectively resolve repetitive strain injuries. RSI sufferers are rarely able to find effective or complete treatment with these traditional treatments! Read Release Your Pain now to understand why these treatments often fail to solve your problem.

Understand the true cause of your pain, learn how it can be resolved, then use the specially designed exercises included in this book to prevent its reoccurrence.

Read our new book, Release Your Pain , to see how Active Release Techniques can help you with your injuries.

How do I find an ART practitioner in my city?

ART practitioners must pass strict qualification tests before they are allowed to officially practice ART. Before beginning your treatment, it is important to verify that your practitioner is certified in the appropriate areas of ART (Upper Extremity, Lower Extremity, and Spine).

It is also important that your provider have a track record of successfully treating your particular condition. It take approximately two years of actually practicing ART to develop a high level of proficiency in this technique.

ART practitioners are available in almost every major city in Canada and the U.S. Obtain the zipcode for your city, and click the button 'locate a practitioner' to locate ART practitioners in your area.
