ART Presentation

On February 2nd, SOCO ASSE member, Tulio Pena gave a presentation on Active Release Techniques (ART).

What is ART? According to their website; “ART is a patented, state of the art soft tissue system/movement based massage 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.”

Some highlights of Tulio’s presentation included:

  • Fellow SOCO ASSE member Mary Betsch helped pioneer the use of ART in the workplace
  • ART is recognized through OSHA (direct from Washington D.C.) as massage/first-aid for recordkeeping purposes
  • Many companies that utilize ART as part of their health and wellness program have seen a significant decrease in the frequency and severity of work comp claims
