NormaTec Compression Recovery
Normatec is quickly becoming a leader in rapid recovery. The systems give a competitive edge to the world's elite athletes, coaches and trainers. Mettā's goal is to establish recovery as an integral part of, not only every athlete's training but, in everyday life for everyone through bodywork, as a form of preventative care and recovery. And we feel that NormaTec PULSE Recovery Systems are one of the best compliments to our hands on practice.
NormaTec systems are made up of a control unit and attachments which go on the legs, arms or hips. They use compressed air to massage your limbs, mobilize fluid and speed recovery. When you use the systems, you will first experience a pre-inflate cycle, during which the attachments are molded to your exact body shape. The session will then begin by compressing your feet, hands or upper quad (depending on which attachment you are using). Each segment of the attachment will first compress in a pulsing manner and then release. This will repeat for each segment of the attachment as the compression pattern works it's way up your limb.
Created by a physician bioengineer (MD, PhD) to enhance blood flow and speed recovery, NormaTec PULSE compression pattern employs three key techniques to maximize your recovery:
Pulsing: Instead of using static compression (squeezing) to transport fluid out of the l, sequential pulse technology uses dynamic compression (pulsing). The patented pulsing action more effectively mimics the muscle pump of the legs and arms, greatly enhancing the movement of the fluid and metabolites out of the limbs after an intense workout, long trip or long day on your feet.
Gradients: Veins and lymphatic vessels have one-way valves that prevent fluids back flow. Similarly, NormaTec PULSE technology uses hold pressures to keep fluids from being forced in the wrong direction. Because of this enhancement, instead of tapering pressure off, the PULSE can deliver maximum pressure in every zone.
Distal Release: Because extended static pressure can be detrimental the body's normal circulatory flow, sequential pulse technology releases the hold once they are no longer needed to prevent back flow. By releasing the hold pressure in each zone as soon as possible, each portion of the limb gains maximal rest time without a significant pause between compression cycles.

The Kinesio taping method involves taping over and around muscles in oder to assist and support or to prevent over contraction all while allowing you to remain involved in your normal activities. This specially designed, elastic, cotton tape helps provide facilitation of lymph flow and also affects the activation of the neurological system. Developed by Dr. Kenzo Kase over 25 years ago in Japan it has taken the rehabilitation and sports medicine world by storm in the most recent years.
