REFLEXIVE PERFORMANCE RESET
You are under constant stress, which is interpreted as survival mode by your body. When in survival mode your body utilizes harmful compensation patterns which can lead to injury. RPR™ resets the body out of survival mode and into performance mode.
The RPR™ system starts by testing what your body is doing now, with simple strength and flexibility tests, so that changes can be clearly measured later.
The next step is to reset your body into breathing correctly. Once you are breathing correctly, we test the rest of your patterns, and if need be, reset your body into performance mode. Once you are reset into performance mode, your will experience reduced aches & pains, increased flexibility and be more resilient to injury.
The best part about the whole RPR™ system is that the results are immediate, massive, measurable and quite frankly, almost unbelievable.
