Active Release Techniques® (A.R.T®)

ART is a patented, state of the art soft tissue technique that treats problems with muscles, tendons, ligaments, fascia and nerves. Headaches, back pain, carpal tunnel syndrome, shin splints, shoulder pain, sciatica, plantar fasciitis, knee problems, and tennis elbow are just a few of the many conditions that can be resolved quickly and permanently with ART. These conditions all have one important thing in common: they are often a result of overused muscles.


Every ART session is actually a combination of examination and treatment. Dr. Lynch uses her hands to evaluate the texture, tightness and movement of muscles, fascia, tendons, ligaments and nerves. Then Dr. Lynch treats the abnormal tissues by combining precisely directed tension with very specific patient movements. Together we release the tension in the tissue when you do a specific movement to stretch the muscle while I maintain tension at the point of injury.
