Technique impact on the muscles by Nikonov's method is quite complicated, but effective. Certain manual movements develop dense muscle. Manual action is made with direct hands located at an angle of 90 degrees to the patient, which receives manual action equal to the doctor’s mass and the pressure force of the muscles of his hands.
In order not to cause injury from such pressure, the doctor's hands are slightly bent at the elbow joints. With this pressure, the arms bent at the elbow joint are absorbed, the patient feels deep penetrating, but at the same time soft pressure.
The manual action itself is performed first by the doctor’s palms, then by the back of the hand, which is closed into a fist. The specialist produces all movements without shifting the skin. The movement of the hands from the treated area of the patient's body to the untreated one is done by completely taking the doctor’s hands away from the patient’s body.
The specialist does this very carefully, because pain is possible. The impact on the muscles is carried out gently, the problem areas are processed carefully. The effect on the muscles according to the Nikonov's method changes the density of the cytoplasm of the muscle cell. Under the conditions of sol-cytoplasm, ATP energy molecules move freely from mitochondria to actin and myosin motor proteins.
