RAPID NeuroFascial Reset (or “RAPID-NFR”, or just “RAPID” for short) is a soft tissue, movement based therapeutic technique that addresses the central nervous system’s role in alleviating pain, tension, and restrictions within muscles, tendons, ligaments, fascial tissue, and nerves. It works to desensitize and calm hypersensitivity in the nervous system that causes pain.

If you have repetitive strain or complex issues caused by an injury, a RAPID NeuroFascial Reset is the right service for you.
Your treatment will begin with an in depth assessment which will include ROM and orthopaedic testing. Your massage therapist will go over your health history and any issues you want to address. You will not be asked to undress so be sure to wear comfortable “athletic” clothing that is easy to move in.
Every treatment session is a combination of examination and treatment. Through palpating with their hands, the therapist assesses the texture, tone, and range of motion of the affected area. Areas are treated by combining precisely directed tension with very specific movements from the client. The movement phase of the treatment may be uncomfortable, as the neurological system is being stimulated to restore normal function to the tissues but you will feel great in the following days and experience less pain and more ease of movement. It is a fairly quick and efficient process, usually only 30-45min in length.
It is important to maintain a dialogue on your comfort levels so your therapist can make adjustments with the pressure and techniques being utilized. Please understand that not all issues require deep tissue work or prolonged deep pressure. Your therapist is trained to identify the source of your issue and treat it as needed.
After the massage, you may feel relaxed and rejuvenated. It’s important to drink plenty of water to help flush out any toxins that were released during the massage. Your therapist may also provide you with some aftercare advice, such as remedial exercises, stretching or self-massage techniques to help facilitate your rehabilitation and progress. A return date for your treatment plan will also be suggested to keep you on track.
RAPID NeuroFascial Reset involves deep tissue work, and the pressure applied can be intense. While it is generally not painful, you may feel some discomfort during the treatment.

RAPID NeuroFascial Reset (RAPID NFR) was developed by Dr. John I. Amaral, a chiropractor and certified practitioner of various soft tissue techniques. Dr. Amaral created RAPID NFR to address the underlying causes of chronic pain and dysfunction in the body’s fascial system.
The technique combines elements of several established modalities, such as myofascial release, trigger point therapy, and active release techniques, to create a unique and effective approach to treating soft tissue injuries and pain. RAPID NFR has gained popularity in recent years due to its success in treating a wide range of conditions, from sports injuries to chronic pain and postural imbalances.
RAPID NeuroFascial Reset (RAPID NFR) is a soft tissue technique used to address pain, dysfunction, and tightness caused by neurofascial adhesions.
RAPID NFR works by using specific hand pressure to target areas of fascial restriction, stimulating the nervous system to release the adhesion and promote healing.
RAPID NFR should not be painful. The pressure used is adjusted to each individual’s comfort level and the therapist will communicate with the client throughout the session to ensure the pressure is appropriate.
RAPID NFR can benefit individuals with a wide range of conditions, including acute and chronic pain, sports injuries, postural imbalances, and more. It is safe and effective for individuals of all ages, including children and seniors.
