what is rapid neurofascial reset?

RAPID NeuroFascial Reset, is a neurologically based, active, therapeutic technique that addresses the central nervous systems role in alleviating tension and restrictions within the body. RAPID is an evidence based manual therapy technique that is used by a Registered Massage Therapist to quickly and effectively eliminate pain.

Utilizing a biopsychosocial perspective RAPID addresses the body’s perception of threat and danger. By bringing the brain to safety, most painful conditions and ROM restrictions disappear.

 

Using nociception and movement, RAPID induces a combination of descending inhibition within the nervous system, and a powerful increase in vasodilation. These together offer near immediate and lasting pain reduction.

A deeper dive

RAPID is a method of hands on neuro-fascial “reset” stimulating the deepest fascia of the periosteum (a dense layer of vascular connective tissue enveloping the bones). Why the periosteum? The periosteal fascia is the richest source of sensory free nerve endings in the body. Stimulating the neurobiological system this way allows access to nearly one thousand times more sensory receptors than by massaging muscle alone. By accessing the neurobiological system, therapists are able to affect both the central and autonomic nervous systems. Affecting the autonomic nervous system this way also has a global effect on the body by turning down the sympathetic nervous system. Most importantly therapeutic intervention to these free nerve endings is known to produce a chemical cascade in the tissues which dramatically reduces pain. In addition to the periosteum we also focus our work on the aponeurosis, nerve sheaths, tendons, joint capsules and ligaments as these tissues are also highly neurological. Simply put RAPID addresses dysfunctional nerve endings to reduce tissue tension and pain and place the body in a relaxed state.

What conditions can RAPID treat?

  • Headaches/Migraines

  • Back pain 

  • Carpal Tunnel Syndrome 

  • Shin splints 

  • Shoulder pain 

  • Sciatica 

  • Plantar Fasciitis 

  • Knee problems 

  • Tennis/Golfers Elbow 

  • Whiplash

  • TMJ

  • Frozen shoulder

  • Bursitis

  • Bunions and arthritic joints

  • Neurological Hypersensitivity

Some of the conditions that can be quickly resolved with RAPID-NFR include:

 

what to expect during treatment

what to expect during treatment

Your RAPID Therapist will use a a combination of hands on palpation, examination, and treatment. The RAPID provider palpates the tissues with her hands to evaluate the texture, tightness and movement of muscles, fascia, tendons, ligaments and nerves. Hypersensitive areas are treated by combining precisely directed depth and tension with very specific patient movements. 

RAPID sessions may be uncomfortable. This occurs as the neurological system is being stimulated to restore normal function.

 

why choose rapid?

Clients choose RAPID because of the rapid response to treatment. This helps active individuals get back to life. RAPID is ideal for both acute and chronic conditions. ​
