A safe and natural way to relieve aches during pregnancy. Your therapist will ask you to communicate with your doctor to make sure massage is safe for you. Your Massage Therapist needs to know of any changes happening during your pregnancy, as well as any medications you may be taking. A trained prenatal massage therapist knows where a pregnant woman's sore spots are likely to be and may be able to provide some relief. Still, it's important to communicate with your therapist if anything during the massage is causing you discomfort. Positioning during the massage will be side-lying with several pillows to make you comfortable as we do not have specialized pregnancy tables.
Rapid NeuroFascial Reset is a movement based therapeutic technique that manipulates the central nervous system to decrease pain and tension within muscles, tendons, ligaments, fascia and nerves.
When do we use RAPID?
Over Used Muscles
All of these issues produce underlying scar tissue to the affected area. This scar tissue binds up and ties down tissues that need to move freely. As scar tissue builds up, muscles become shorter and weaker, tension on tendons causes tendonitis, and nerves can become trapped. This can cause reduced range of motion, loss of strength, and pain. If a nerve is trapped you may also feel tingling, numbness, and weakness.
What is the RAPID treatment like?
Your therapist will examine and evaluate the tension and movement of the areas were you have indicated pain. A deep pressure is then applied and held in place while you perform a movement to stretch the tissues, therefore the treatment can be quite uncomfortable, as the nervous system is stimulated to restore normal function. The therapist may ask you to bring a tank top and shorts along.
Why choose RAPID?
RAPID is a quick way to achieve the results that you're looking for. It will rid your pain, increase your range of motion and will help you return to your regular activities.
