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, for example, as internal organ complaints, musculoskeletal stresses, diminished immune response and emotional/behavioral problems. The same thing 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 body systems to become sluggish. They slow down function and sometimes simply turn off. The muscles can become weak and do not support your skeleton well, leading to all sorts of aches and pains.
Torque Release Technique corrects these problems with increased or decreased neurological tone by normalizing the functioning of the nerves, spinal cord and brain. TRT is based upon correcting nerve system disturbance called subluxations. The nerve system attachments to the spine only occur in a small number of sites; the skull, upper and lower neck area, the sacrum and coccyx (tailbone).
