The®Stick is a non-motorized device that is composed of a semi-rigid core around which independent, 1 inch spindles freely spin. This instrument was engineered to assist doctors in the deep manipulation of soft tissues such as muscle. The Stick has proven highly effective at its intended function, but new evidence strongly suggests that the benefits of Intracell Technology far out pace its original intentions. A synopsis of these benefits follows:
Warm muscles perform better than cool muscles, Traditionally, athletes would have to do light exercise to raise muscle temperature and enhance enzyme activity, This came at the expense of energy stores that could make the difference between first place and second place. Intracell Technology allows an athlete to warm-up without expending energy reserves.
Emphasis on flexibility training by most athletes is almost non-existent. However, flexibility is crucial for developments in speed, strength and endurance. The usual approach to flexibility is less than optimal since muscle rarely stiffens uniformly. Typically, isolated segments of muscle become chronically shortened. Intracell Technology allows an athlete to perform general stretching as well as segmental stretching procedures with a high degree of precision.
Barrier trigger points are inflexible bands of muscle containing knots. These barriers set an artificial ceiling on muscle performance by restricting blood flow to the muscle. And, unrestricted blood flow is vital for both high performance and full recovery from exercise. Intracell Technology lifts the ceiling on performance by extinguishing barrier trigger points.
Restricted blood flow to the muscles following exercise hinders muscle growth, muscle repair and glycogen repletion. Blood flow restrictions are due to generalized muscle tightness and barrier trigger points. Intracell Technology relaxes tight muscle to enhance muscle growth, repairs tissue and augments glycogen repletion following heavy exercise.
