Why Do Swell Spots Work?
1. Foam chips in Swell Spots create localized tissue pressure differentials to stimulate interstitial fluid movement, prevent stagnation and soften indurated tissue.
2. Foam chips in Swell Spots nestle into the tissue to create localized tissue stretch and surface pressure differential.
3. Tissue stretch opens up gap junctions drawing excess interstitial fluid and waste products into the lymphatic system.
