Pin and Release

Instructor: Jim EARLEY, LMT, NCBTMB


Time: 9:00AM-5:30PM

Date: Sunday, January 24, 2021

In this class, we will cover pin and release techniques for the upper and lower body. This technique works well for your regular clients and for athletes.

Pin and release or better known as Pin and Stretch or

ART (chiropractors), is a movement-based muscle lengthening technique that is highly effective in treating  problems with:

  • muscle and tendons
  • ligaments and fascia

Pinning the muscle with sliding force :

  • increases movement of the tissue
  • breaks up and removes adhesions

Pin and release techniques are highly effective for :

  • overused muscles
  • repetitive use injuries (especially with athletes)
  • scar tissue

By applying focused pressure while the client performs specific motions to lengthen the tissue in these targeted areas, underlying tissue can be released. Releases can be passive or active where client participation is necessary.


Please dress comfortably, bring a set of sheets, hand sanitizer, and wear your mask.
