ART® has been developed, refined, and patented by P. Michael Leahy, a Colorado Springs chiropractor widely regarded as the top soft tissue expert in the country, if not the world.
Dr. Leahy noticed that his patients’ symptoms seemed to be related to changes in their soft tissue that could be felt by hand. By observing how muscles, fascia, tendons, ligaments and nerves responded to different types of work, Dr. Leahy was able to consistently resolve over 90% of his patients’ problems. He now teaches and certifies health care providers all over the world to use ART®.
Dr. Hyman has had the unique experience of working with Dr. Leahy in a professional sports environment, helping him treat members of the local NFL team, the Denver Broncos. He has also worked with NHL players, professional triathletes, professional runners, professional dancers, and even a professional wrestler. Dr. Hyman also was honored to teach Active Release Techniques® for Dr. Leahy at seminars across North America from 2002 -2020.
