  • Stimulate mechanoreceptors in fascia (particularly some interstitial receptors and possibly Ruffinis)
  • Increase vagal tone and lower the stress response
  • Stimulate efficient blood supply
  • Help to re-establish fascial contractility and recoil
  • Facilitate greater coordination of movement within the body
  • Improve organ function
  • Reduce pain and inflammation
  • Facilitate greater interoceptive awareness
  • Assist with local and global cellular function
  • Facilitate light-based and electrical communication throughout the body.
