Low Speed, Deep Pressure will activate Muscle Spindles and Golgi Tendon Organs for recovery to decrease muscle tone and aid in relaxation.
Low Speed, Light Pressure will stimulate Ruffini Endings and Muscle Spindles to decrease sympathetic activity and improve flexibility.
High Speed, Deep Pressure will stimulate Free Nerve Endings and Pacinian Corpuscles to inhibit pain signals and help with ROM.
High Speed, Light Pressure will stimulate Pacinian Corpuscles and Free Nerve Endings to increase proprioception and sympathetic activity.
WarmUp phase of training: High Speed, Short Time, Light Pressure (less than 30 seconds) to activate and prepare the body to train, aiding in motor-control, coordination, proprioception, and body awareness.
Between Sets: High Speed, Short Time, Light Pressure as a complementary exercise for less than 30 seconds per area to maintain stimulation, proprioception, circulation and recovery.
Cool-Down Phase of Training: Low Speed, long time, Deep Pressure (60 seconds or more) to hydrate tissue, speed recovery, decrease DOMS and mitigate soreness.
