What is Rapid Neuro-Fascial Reset?

RAPID is a method of hands-on neuro-fascial “reset” stimulating the deepest fascia of the periosteum. Why the periosteum? The periosteal fascia is the richest source of sensory free nerve endings in the body-richer than the eyes, ears, nose or skin. Stimulating the neurobiological system this way allows access to nearly one thousand times more sensory receptors than massaging muscle alone. By accessing the neurobiological system as such therapists are able to affect both the central and autonomic nervous systems to reduce tissue tone and increase intercellular tissue fluids, this, in turn, melts adhesion and tissue tension. 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.

 

RAPID offers the practitioner the ability to successfully treat the most complex painful musculoskeletal complaints that mainstream medicine offers little help for such as; sciatica, plantar fasciitis, shin splints, bursitis, frozen shoulder, Baker’s cysts, back pain, migraines, TMJ-D, vertigo, tinnitus, arthritis, knee pain, golfer’s and tennis elbow and so much more.

What is Holistic Nutrition?
What is Holistic Nutrition?

Holistic Nutrition is a natural approach to health that uses evidence-based techniques for diet, lifestyle, and detoxification. Instead of focusing on just one aspect of the person, or taking a one size fits all methodology, holistic nutrition evaluates the complete health history, emotional state, lifestyle habits and current diet habits of an individual to determine the root cause of his or her health issues.
