Chief Instructor Michael Ellefson is a Level II Reflexive Performance Reset (RPR) Pro.
What is RPR: Reflexive Performance Reset?
RPR is designed to immediately shift your body from a stressed sympathetic mode to a Parasympathetic Performance State.
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.
Your body has two priorities for optimal performance; to breathe and move correctly. Most athletes do not, so their bodies find a way to meet those priorities by creating harmful compensation patterns.
Compensation patterns are the main cause of non contact injuries in sport as well as every day aches and pains that limit performance. Utilizing specialized wake up drills™, we can shift your body out of these patterns and reduce pain, increase flexibility and help your body become more resilient to injury.
The wake up drills™ utilize special reflex points that reset your body out of these harmful compensation patterns. The thing that makes RPR® so unique is that you don't need a Ph.d in anatomy to use them. Athletes can do the wake up drills™ themselves, thereby taking control of their own health and performance.
The RPR® system is far more than just the simple wake up drills™ . It is sophisticated enough that it can explain almost every non contact injury you have ever seen and help prevent them from happening again.
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.
RPR® is not a “treatment” for injuries and is not intended to “treat”, “fix”, “manipulate” or otherwise replace medical advice and/or treatment.
