NFR with Alignment Therapeutic Massage can dramatically change your life

Many clients have tried every type of treatment, taken every pill or injection, and visited the pain or spinal clinic. Does this sound familiar? How does a treatment being non-invasive and effective sound? NFR could be your answer!

What exactly is NFR?

NeuroFascial Reset is a new soft tissue, movement-based, technique that addresses the central nervous system’s role in alleviating pain, tension, and restrictions within muscles, tendons, ligaments, fascia, and nerves.

Every session is a combination of examination and treatment. Your therapist uses their hands to evaluate the texture, tightness, and movement of your body. Hypersensitive areas are treated by combining precisely directed tension with very specific patient movements.

NFR sessions may be uncomfortable during the movement phase of the treatment. This occurs as the neurological system is being stimulated to restore normal function.

Clients choose NFR because of the quick response to treatment. Treating the body at the neurological level stimulates a reprogramming of the tight tissues so that muscles relax, range of motion is restored and pain is diminished. This helps individuals get back to life and living.

— Treatments For All Ages —

Infants, children, youths, adults and seniors.

Your NFR or massage treatment can include any of the following depending on the nature of your pain.

NeuroFascial Reset (NFR)
This treatment will incorporate stretches and very specific pressures that stimulate the autonomic nervous system to reduce muscular tone, increase blood flow, and create sensory feedback to the brain to incorporate change within the body.
Myofascial Release
A technique completed without the use of oil to release both the muscle tissue and the fascia (the connective tissue surrounding the muscle) therefore allowing space for the muscle to elongate.
Dynamic Cupping
A technique originally based on traditional Chinese medicine that has been adapted to release fascia and toxins while creating more blood flow to the area to promote healing.
Therapeutic Massage
Manual manipulation of the soft tissue layers within the body with the goal of releasing adhesions, restrictions, and scar tissue.
Trigger Point Therapy
The use of static pressure on well-documented points with very specific referral patterns to release the entire area affected.
Micro Movements
Reduce tension, strain, and discomfort from repetitive strain injuries and immobility using professionally designed unobtrusive movements.
Gua Sha (scraping)
This century-old Chinese therapy has become a modern technique to relieve pain, scar tissue, adhesions, and increase circulation, energy, and the healing process.
Stone Therapy
Hot stones ease muscular tension through applied pressure and heat. Jade stones have been proven to absorb far-infrared heat waves which relieve pain on a deeper level.
Aromatherapy
Combines the use of essential oils with a massage or as home therapy to enhance health, reduce stress, and relieve pain.

“This is SUCH A BIG DEAL….
Gotta say, yesterday I definitely noticed a difference in leakage. It didn’t take as long to void (usually I have to stand up and sit down again to get it all out). And throughout the day as I gardened and did normal things which require squatting, I don’t think I had one leak! I used to think light bladder leakage would just be part of my life – something I had to deal with. Not any more!!”
