A Brief Overview
|The Stick has been the
focus of numerous articles, manuscripts, awards and honors. Five
independent studies corroborate its effectiveness and ongoing
research continues to expand its boundaries.
||"Normal Muscles do not contain trigger
points. Normal muscles have no taut bands of muscle fibers, are
not tender to firm palpation,...and do not refer pain in response
to applied pressure."

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.

of The Stick which were researched by Dr. Andrew Bonci of the
Sport Biomechanics Laboratory in New York.

The Stick helps to strengthen your muscles by employing
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."
