Physiology behind the Technology
Intracell Technology™ is founded on solid, scientific evidence in muscle physiology. It employs a sophistication that attracts top level athletes, performing artists and those who aspire to obtain peak physical performance.
Intracell Technology™ engages the use of a simple, easy to use tool called the The Stick. 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 healthcare providers in the
deep manipulation of soft tissues such as muscle.
The Stick has proved to be highly effective at its intended function, but new evidence strongly suggests that the benefits of Intracell Technology™ far outpace its original intentions. Read "The Stick for Athletes"
to see the benefits of The Stick which were researched by Dr. Andrew Bonci of the Sport Biomechanics Laboratory in New York.
A Brief Review | The Stick for Athletes | The Stick at Work | Fibromyalgia & Trigger Points
The Stick helps to strengthen your muscles by employing Nutritional Biomechanics.
Here's a short definition:
"In principle, Nutritional Biomechanics exploits the unique biomechanical relationship between muscle and its nutrient delivery system. Patient care for fibromyalgia syndrome, trigger point pain, muscle strain and delayed muscle soreness is especially magnified by supplementing
the patient with a balanced nutritional drink 20-30 minutes prior to therapeutic stretching and massage. Such a protocol will insure that the blood entering the newly relaxed muscle is nutrient-dense. A full complement of nutrients will provide the raw materials needed for healing."
