Pro Touch 6-12: Mode Descriptions
Mode 1: Kneading: EMS
Simulates the thumbs fingers and palms of a real massage therapist. The sensation should feel like a vibration. Focuses in on hypertension and stress and helps to break that down returning full range of motion and flexibility.
Mode 2: Acupressure: EMS
A much more rapid and focused pulse that focuses in on any knot or adhesion in the body. It puts enough pressure on it to break it down and release any acidic (lactic) content within.
Mode 3: Tapping: TENS
Simulates a second heart beat. By tapping the muscle you increase the body’s natural blood flow and oxygen supply to target area. This also helps flush any inflammation or swelling in target area.
Mode 4 Cupping: TENS
This will reach in, grab, and stretch the muscle. Help to lengthen and broaden it, the release it as it sets it back. This will help to increase flexibility and mobility of the muscle.
Mode 5: Hot Stone: TENS
Relaxation mode. This simulates a regular manual rolling massage helping the soft tissue to release and relax.
Mode 6: Shuffle: TENS
This is a combination of modes 1,4,5. This is a great mode to use when cooling down from an exercise.
Mode 7: Contract and Hold: EMS
This mode is the longest contraction on the machine. It is designed to simulate a flex movement to help build muscle tissue.
Mode 8: Ramping wave: TENS
This mode is designed to start out with number 3, tapping. It will get faster and deeper into the belly of the muscle as it continues until it goes to a fully facilitated contraction. Then it will allow the muscle to release. This has been used to increase endurance and build fatigue resistance.
Mode 9: Tapping and kneading: EMS
A mixture of the fast and slow contractions.
Mode 10: Reflexology: TENS
This mode has been designed for the foot accessories. It simulates a reflexology session using several different stimulation patterns.
Mode 11: Auricular Therapy: TENS
When used properly with the ear clip attachment this mode simulates alpha waves in the brain which have been known to help sleep patterns, behavior, and endorphin release. Also, it will relax the sub occipital muscles and promote vaso dilation, helping with migraines and headaches.
Mode 12: Passive Exercise: EMS
A combination of pulses that induce muscle contractions without the fatigue of exercise.
