Tapotement Relaxing? Really?
Tapotement is a great technique not only for stimulating the nervous system, but also for improving circulation, loosening mucus in the lungs, and with other massage techniques breaking up fatty deposits.
And there's a twist (doesn't everything have a twist these days?): After 30-60 seconds, tapotement takes a turn and begins to calm the nervous system. Yes, that pounding/hacking/cupping calms the nervous system and promotes relaxation.
So, the next time you're preparing your star (or being prepared yourself) for the field/ring, make it a short tapotement session. Save the 30-minute percussion for after the trophies.
