Rapid Release Technology, also known as RRT, uses painless, high-speed vibrations to melt scar tissue or adhesions found in spastic muscles and tender fascia.
When your body heals itself, it forms adhesions. Adhesions are stiff, ropey fibers that pull on healthy tissues. They can also impair blood flow, pinch nerves and impair lymphatic drainage. Because adhesions seriously impair the body's ability to function well, they must be broken up.
We use the Rapid Release Technology because it feels good and does not hurt, compared with the pounding action of slower devices or the scraping action of contoured tools.

WHAT IS THE RAPID RELEASE THERAPY PRO2?
It is an FDA registered high-speed vibration device.
WHAT ARE THE BENEFITS OF THE RAPID RELEASE THERAPY PRO2?
Benefits of the Rapid Release Therapy PRO2 include relief of minor aches and pains and relaxes muscles. Relief is often immediate and relief tends to last longer than relief felt from regular massage. Another advantage is vibration closes the "pain gates" of the nervous system, providing an analgesic effect. This means this procedure is usually painless. Unlike massage, where pressing on tender muscles is painful, applying the PRO2 even on very tender muscles does NOT hurt! Often a tickling or relieving sensation is felt instead of pain.
WHAT IS HIGH-SPEED VIBRATION THERAPY?
Rapid Release Therapy pioneered high-speed vibration therapy in 2010 and discovered the optimal vibration speed for versatility and results. The Rapid Release Therapy PRO2 uses this powerful vibration therapy with high frequency and short stroke to relax muscles and reduce aches and pains.
HOW LONG ARE THE TREATMENTS?
The initial time we apply the Rapid Release Therapy PRO2 to the region is 2 to 5 minutes. We keep the initial session brief, so we can see how your body responds to high-speed vibration. We do not use the Rapid Release Therapy PRO2 continuously for more than 10 minutes as there is no observed benefit to sessions lasting longer than 5 minutes per area.

What Rapid Release Therapy is used for:
NECK PAIN: Stiffness in the muscles of the neck can lead to a stiff and painful neck. Rapid Release Therapy can relax these muscles and allow freer movement. The PRO2's smaller flat head is ideal for these smaller muscles. Remember to take off all jewelry, and pull the hair up and away from the RRT, as hair and other loose items can get sucked up into the RRT's vents.
BACK PAIN: The back is full of muscles that control posture and supports your daily movement. The PRO2’s flat head of the large tip and treatment cap are ideal for relieving stiffness in patients with muscle tension and spasm in the back.
HIP PAIN: The muscles of the hip are often the most neglected. Rapid Release Therapy can relax these muscles and relieve aches and pains of the hips and lower extremities. The PRO2’s flat head of the large tip and treatment cap are ideal for these large muscles.
ELBOW PAIN: Elbows are vital to the movement of the hands as the muscles the move the hand anchor on the elbow. And these muscles are often overworked. Rapid Release Therapy promotes relief and eases movement, taking pressure off the elbow, relieving elbow pain. The PRO2’s flat head of the soft tip is ideal for this boney region.
WRIST PAIN: Muscles in the forearm move the hand and wrist. Freeing up these muscles with Rapid Release Therapy improves movement and relieves pain. RRT to the wrist itself often relieves pain from conditions like Carpal Tunnel Syndrome, as well as takes pressure of the lesser known tunnel of the wrist, the Tunnel of Guyon. The PRO2’s flat head of the soft tip is ideal for this boney region.
HAND PAIN: Rapid Release is uniquely suited for use on hands and fingers because of the small treatment disks and the ability to apply with a small stroke. Even the bigger tips of the PRO2 can be very comfortably used on aches and pains in the hand. Many patients come in just to have their fingers treated with the RRT as it relieves the pain from their arthritis. The PRO2’s flat head of the soft tip is ideal for this boney region.
LEG PAIN: Rapid Release Therapy relaxes the muscles in the thigh and calf regions. The RRT releases stiffness in the hips and knees to provide improved ease of movement, taking strain off the muscles that move these large weight bearing joints. The PRO2’s flat head of the large tip and treatment cap are ideal for these large muscles.
FOOT PAIN: As the foundation of the body, the foot is a complex structure. They are critical to the body's ability to stand, walk, run, and jump. Unbalanced feet lead to an unbalanced body. Foot pain can lead to limping, which can lead to knee, hip, back and neck pain. Rapid Release Therapy can release muscles and reduce such aches and pains. Though it can tickle to apply RRT to the feet, if tolerated, most report immediate relief from the foot and or heel pain. The PRO2’s flat head of the soft tip is ideal for this boney region.

CAN I USE THE RAPID RELEASE THERAPY PRO2 ON MYSELF?
The PRO2 is ideally suited for self-care
HOW LONG CAN I APPLY THE RRT ON MYSELF?
The initial session time is 2 to 5 minutes. Keep the initial session brief, so you can see how the body responds to high-speed vibration. Do not use continuously for more than 10 minutes. Please allow it cool off 5 to 10 minutes before the next use. There is no observed benefit to sessions lasting longer than 5 minutes per area.
HOW DO I USE THE RAPID RELEASE THERAPY PRO2?
Turn on by pushing the gray switch on the rear of the Rapid Release Therapy PRO2 to the right. Use a grip that is comfortable to you, making sure that you are not obstructing the air vents. Rotate the Rapid Release Therapy PRO2 so the desired treatment head is in contact with the body. When using for the first time on somebody, ask them to hold out their hand with their palm up and apply Rapid Release Therapy PRO2 to confirm it is acceptable to them. Applying pressure is not needed or recommended. Let the weight of the Rapid Release Therapy PRO2 do the work for you. Keep the device moving about 1 inch per second in a circular or zig-zag motion. The Rapid Release Therapy PRO2 can be used on skin or clothing. Do not pull or tug on the power cord. Doing so could damage the cord or cause the power to disconnect where the cord connects at the base of the Rapid Release Therapy PRO2. This may void your warranty. It is normal for the green disk to become warm to the touch. Like any mechanical device, while in use, it is normal for the areas near the ventilation slots to become warm, If this area becomes hot, turn the machine off and let cool off for ten minutes before using it again.
HOW MUCH DOES THE PRO2 WEIGH?
The Rapid Release Therapy PRO2 weighs 2.2 lbs without the cord and 2.7 lbs with the cord. WHAT ARE THE DIMENSIONS OF THE PRO2? The Rapid Release Therapy PRO2 is 10.5 inches long.
WHAT ARE THE ELECTRICAL REQUIREMENTS OF THE PRO2?
The Rapid Release Therapy PRO2 must only be plugged into polarized outlets (one opening is bigger than the other). The Rapid Release Therapy PRO2 is available in two models: 110/120 volt model or 220/240 volt model. Use the proper voltage. Do not plug a 120V Rapid Release Therapy PRO2 into a 240V plug and vice versa. If you do need to use your Rapid Release Therapy PRO2 with a different voltage, you must use a transformer to change the voltage. The transformer must be rated at 300 Watts or higher and typically weigh about 5 lbs (2 KG). Using plug adapters or transformers rated less than 300 Watts will destroy your Rapid Release Therapy PRO2 and will void the warranty. If you have any questions about this, please contact us at [email protected] before you plug it in. The product specification label will state the operating voltage of your device.
