Pin and Release
Time: 9:30am – 5:30pm
Instructor: Jim Earley, LMT
In this class, we will be covering 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 is 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.
Students should wear comfortable clothing, bring a set of sheets and a large towel.
