FAQ about Torque Release Technique

Following are some of the most frequently asked questions we receive about Torque Release Technique, however you may have some additional questions so please do not hesitate to ask.  

“I didn’t feel like much happened!”​

That’s OK. These techniques require that your body responds in fairly organized and coordinated ways in order for the therapeutic response to be significant. Did you ride a bike perfectly the first time you got on it? Some will respond to these techniques straight away. Others will take a few “lessons” before they “catch on.”

“You don’t seem to be 'doing' much to me during an adjustment?”

These techniques are focused on helping your body to better look after itself.  As such, they actually work better when your body is given some time to respond after each part of the adjustment is delivered. In a sense, we do as little as possible to get your own body to do as much as possible.​  

“You seem to be doing a lot to my feet?”

TRT uses the legs to help determine where in the spine the nervous system is being irritated. Based on patterns of contraction in one leg compared to the other, and by applying pressure to strategic points on the spinal column we can locate exactly where your spine needs to be adjusted. The pattern and degree of tension in your central nervous system is “mirrored” by patterns of muscle tension and imbalance in your hips and legs. This is similar to measuring your blood pressure in your arm to tell what is happening in your heart.

“How can you realign my spine without doing the manual adjustment?”

Because these methods work with neurological reflexes:  by releasing the tension in the nervous system, the muscles around the spine will relax, releasing the restriction in the joints.

“Is this treatment any good for kids?”

These methods are ideally suited to adjusting children, and many kids prefer this style of adjustment. Discussion with our colleagues who have introduced these techniques have revealed repeated success stories with many and varied childhood health issues, from ear infections to ADHD, colic and reflux, sleeping disorders and bedwetting.​
