Active Release Techniques

ART originated from the ingenious mind of Dr P. Michael Leahy, a Colorado, USA based Chiropractor. He had a passion for optimising human performance and in that drive he developed Active Release Techniques in the early 1980’s as a response to the limitations in conventional therapies. Today ART is a beacon of innovation, providing dynamic solutions to soft tissue injuries and conditions
