Torque Release Technique
Torque Release Technique
Dr. Kolbi uses a
chiropractic spinal analysis and adjusting technique called "Torque
Release Technique." This information is to allow you to better
understand the basis for this technique and how it affects your body.
release bases its technique on gentle touch and light thrusting by hand
or instrument. This low-force adjusting method allows the nervous
system to better integrate and understand the new corrective
information and to process it throughout the spinal cord and brain
spinal corrections do not stop once you get off the table. They
continue as you breath and move. You may notice that you hear a click
or popping sound in your spine later on the same day after the torque
release adjustment. That's your body realigning and correcting its own

analysis and correction are not limited to just the area of pain and
symptom, integration tends to be more complete and healing experiences
are deeper in all areas of the body, mind, and emotions.
Release releases tension on the spinal cord by correcting subluxations
of spinal segments intimately connected with the meninges or
attachments of the spinal cord. It leads to profound neurological
changes that benefit everyone - no matter what symptoms or level of
health they are currently experiencing.
The Primary intent
of Torque Release Technique is to progressively reduce blockages and
tension of the entire spinal system, to release trapped unresolved
patterns in the body/mind, and to facilitate reintegration of the
nervous system, allowing a greater expression of one's healing and
Commonly asked questions about Torque Release
What is Torque Release Technique?
is called a "tonal" technique because it normalizes the tone of the
nervous system. Imagine that your nervous system has a volume control -
if you turn the volume up too high, it causes distortion (increased
tone) which can show up as internal organ complaints, musculoskeletal
stresses, and diminished immune response. The same occurs if the volume
control is set too low, in other words the nervous system is not
sending enough messages to the body for what is necessary to get the
job done (decreased tone). This causes your systems to become sluggish,
they slow down function and sometimes simply turn off, the muscles
become weak and do not support your skeleton well, leading to all sorts
or aches and pains.
TRT corrects these problems with increased
or decreased neurological tone by normalizing the functioning of
nerves, spinal cord and brain. TRT is based upon correcting spinal
misalignment, called subluxations, primarily where the wrapping of the
spinal cord and brain, the dura mater, attaches to the spinal segments.
These attachments only occur in small number of sites in the spine; the
upper neck area, the sacrum and coccyx. The dura also attaches to all
the bones of the skull. Dr. Kolbi includes cranial bone adjusting with
her torque release protocols to relieve these stresses on the skull.
What can I expect from Torque Release?
people notice a tremendous sense of relaxation and well-being after
TRT. Most people take deep sighs after these adjustments as their
bodies release deep neurological stresses that have been accumulating
over the years. Overall, it's always a very pleasant and enjoyable

many ways of adjusting the spine. Some involve a physical movement of
the joints between two spinal bones, resulting in the sound that people
are so familiar with. Other techniques use light force that do not
cause any sound. Both techniques work! It all comes down to the intent
of the chiropractor in releasing stresses to your nervous system. Dr .
Kolbi uses a combination of techniques to provide you the finest care
What types of conditions does it help?
important to note that TRT is not a treatment for specific diseases.
TRT is meant to correct spinal subluxations that are interfering with
the neurological control of your body.
Is this technique safe for infants and children?
have found that this technique is one of the best ones we've seen for
all ages of children - from birth through adolescence. The technique is
extremely gentle, with no forceful manipulations of the spine. Children
really enjoy its gentleness and often hop up onto the tables in
anticipation of their spinal corrections!
