Pin and Release (formerly scheduled for June 8th, 2024)

Cost: $210

8 CEs

9:00 AM-5:30 PM

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. 


Supplies: All students should wear comfortable clothing and bring a set of sheets (headrest cover, too) and massage cream of their preference.


Parking is limited to three hours in front of AMTB; students should refrain from parking in front of AMTB and other High Street businesses.  There is a paid parking lot located on Hanover Street (across from Sherwin Williams).  Students can pay for parking using the kiosk or the Park Mobile App.  We recommend that students download the parking app and add their license plate and credit card information prior to coming to class. Park where you are comfortable, but AMTB is not responsible for student vehicles or parking fines.
