To maximize the effect of your massage and to minimize feedback onto your hand and wrist, glide or "heel" the VMTX along with the muscles you are massaging. Do so with the palm of your hand. Allow the percussive action of the massage head does its work. Use your fingers to just glide the device in the direction you want it to move. When you are ready to apply more pressure on a specific pressure point or muscle knot, transfer or "rock" the weight on your hand forward from your palm onto your fingers. This transfer of pressure will increase the massage strength on that particular point of the muscle.
