Active Release Technique®

Dr. Lassiter is certified in the movement-based soft tissue technique called ART® (Active Release Technique), which treats muscle aches and pains, sprain and strain injuries, tightness and tension problems, sports and exercise injuries, and more (click here to see more conditions treated). This state-of-the-art technique is patented because it is so different than anything else.

Dr. Lassiter uses his hands to evaluate the texture, tension, movement and function of the involved area.  He then treats abnormal soft tissues by combining precisely directed tension from his hands with very specific movements made by the patient.

In the Richmond area, there are very few providers who are certified in ART®. If you see someone advertising that they do Active Release in the Richmond area and they are not on the following link, they are not doing ART® (although they may be doing some other type of soft tissue technique).
