The three pillars of a great treatment plan
Asessment, Treatment, and Homecare

The assessment is an incredibly useful tool. Information gathered before each massage about your health history and habits, combined with our qualified observations of any obvious signs and symptoms such as your current level of pain and range of motion, will result in a more effective overall treatment plan 

Treatments pick up where the assessment leaves off and while no two treatments are the samecommunication here is as important as the assessment itself. In addition to monitoring how your muscles are reacting, feedback during your massage can help us adjust the pressure and techniques used and find patterns in how and why pain appears.  If work on sensitive areas is required, we’ll always ask for your consent before continuing and be happy to explain why we work on them.   

The road to better health doesn’t end with your treatment or at our doors. We believe it’s important to also play a role in helping to educate and empower you on your personal health journey. Part of that is to customize your homecare; which is exactly what it sounds like; care that is done at home. Extend the benefits of your last massage with targeted homecare designed to sustain the effects of your last massage. Theralleve will demonstrate and provide you with simple stretches and movements you can do on your own time and comfort level.

RAPID NFR                         

Neurofascial Reset

Rapid Neurofascial Reset (Rapid NFR) uses an active, neurologically-based, therapeutic technique to address pain and restriction in the body by calming the central nervous system to “reset” and restore normal function.

The issue.

Fascia is the connective tissue that surrounds our organs, bones, muscles, joints, etc. With fascia’s web-like structure and our body’s consistency to engage in activity and stress, fascia clusters called “adhesions” can form which create limited movement and/or cause pain. This is because whenever your brain perceives threat or harm, its primary response is to stop functionality and create hypersensitivity.

The treatment.

Your Upper Body RAPID Therapist, Carly will perform an assessment to examine and understand where adhesions are located. Next, she will guide you through specific movements, anchoring and treating with precisely directed tension and depth to reduce and often eliminate pain and restriction in the affected area(s). Home-care is often provided afterwards to increase effectiveness.  

RAPID sessions may be uncomfortable. This occurs as the neurological system is being stimulated to restore normal function. 

The result.

RAPID brings the brain to safety so that most painful conditions and range of motion restrictions disappear.

Like all treatments at Theralleve, RAPID helps clients get back to the activities they love.

Dynamic Cupping 

FREE add-on treatment for both Therapeutic and Relaxation Massage

Your massage therapist will help determine if cupping is appropriate to your overall health history, skin condition, and goals. 

“Cupping” is a therapeutic practice that involves placing a concave cup over the skin to create a seal of suction. The cup is then either left in place (“parked”) or dragged across the skin.

With the main intention being to bring blood closer to the surface, some benefits of cupping are said to include:

  • enhanced joint mobility,
  • lowered blood pressure,
  • and loosened fascia (think tight, restricted muscles).

At Theralleve, we work with silicone cups and use the “Dynamic Cupping” method. This means that the cups are used for a shorter duration (typically, less than 20 minutes of your overall massage treatment time) and the cups are moved more than they are stationary.

Although there can be no guarantee as to whether a client’s skin will mark or not (the ‘marking’ being a temporary circular darkening of the skin due to the cup’s suction), your massage therapist will always to be mindful of both the suction pressure and amount of time the cups have been left on the skin.

Most people feel relaxed and even energized after cupping, but there are many factors we consider including it in treatment. For a full list of side effects and a more comprehensive look, we recommend you read our blog.

Because we know that cupping might still be a curiosity to you, we welcome any questions – please do not hesitate to email, phone, or ask us at your next appointment.

TMJ (D) Temporomandibular Joint (Dysfunction) 

Jaw Pain/Dysfunction

The three pillars of a great treatment plan: Assessment, Treatment and Homecare  

TMJD is a dysfunction of the jaw  including the joint itself and/or surrounding muscles  and can affect people in different ways. Often influenced by posture, how the body behaves at rest and at work can influence both internal (stress, psychological) and external (mobility, flexibility) responses. These responses can alter the orientation and function of the jaw which can create habits of compensation or other conditions, often leading to pain. TMJ massage aims to increase mobility, decrease pain, and create better body awareness. A TMJ massage pulls together information about contributing life factors and clinical assessment to form the basis for appropriate treatment and homecare.
