Welcome to the 1st Edition of the Back in Balance Bodywork Newsletter.

I will be sending these newsletters out to all our patients to help keep you up to date on what’s going on at Back in Balance Bodywork. Please feel free to share this newsletter with anyone you think may benefit from this type of treatment.

I wanted to take a few moments to help give you a brief explanation of RAPID Neurofascial Reset.

What is RAPID Neurofascial Reset? How can it help you? Do you live in pain? Has your life become debilitating? Has pain become your lifestyle? Life doesn’t have to be like this, this can be your solution.

RAPID Neurofascial Reset or RAPID Therapy is a soft tissue mobilization technique designed to help calm hypersensitivity in the nervous system that causes pain. In our bodies we have receptors that are sensitive to pressure and vibration. These at times can be aggravated and send pain signals to the brain. RAPID simply shuts these off. As a result, the client reports increased range of motion, more circulation, and most importantly little to no pain.

The technique in its application is quite simple, It is done over clothes, preferably loose comfortable clothing. The therapist will will shorten the tissue to be treated, take tension, then release the adhesion(restriction).

Now adhesions are anything in the body that can feel “stuck,” EX. where the normal slide and glide is no longer there. Injuries, bad posture, sedentary lifestyles, and overuse can be some of the causes. Where there is a thickening of the area or pain is a place to treat. RAPID will allow all of this to dissipate.

Rapid sessions need to be a little deeper than what many people are used to. This is because these receptors respond to a higher threshold. The off switch has to be reached high on the wall. The therapist will work within the client’s limits, but the more they can take the more they will benefit. Bruising is a rare occurrence.

No ordinary therapist can perform RAPID. Not only do Rapid Therapists go through their licensed schooling, but RAPID is a 6 day long intensive hands on workshop. There is additional reading concerning rapid not to mention the general reading of anatomy and physiology.

Conditions such as frozen shoulder, whiplash, plantar fasciitis, migraines, and sciatica are only a few conditions that can be resolved RAPID Therapy.

The treatment times take generally 30 to 45 minutes. And prices for each session are under 100 dollars. Most people feel life changing results between 3 to 10 sessions. I aim to eliminate the NEED, but instead create a WANT for my clients to return.

Remember my friends, pain is not a lifestyle! We look forward to seeing you again soon.
