The Recapitulator is built to last, versatile with a variety of choice of attachments for different depth penetration and pressure assistance. Some muscles are close to the bone or near the skin surface and the shortest or medium upright if perfect and with this setting can work most all body areas easily, Some muscles are deep within the body structure, some with more fleshy areas like the stomach, therefore the longest upright may be the ideal choice for that area.
The deeper you have to go within the body structure, the longer the upright you choose so you can use less energy to achieve the desired amount of pressure, basically. to help relax those uptight muscles. One choice may work better or easier using a lesser amount of effort.

All we have to do is lay back onto the tool, sit on it, roll over onto, or lean into. And hold the pressure there, as heavily or light as you wish and breathe into it for awhile, Holding the pressure in a location for as long as you can and then moving on to a nearby outlying or connected area. I can be massaging my arm and i can feel a change in my back, so there are connections we are not even aware of as yet.
To properly reach all these places, there are 3 sizes of uprights and 2 different size knob ends. One knob end can pinpoint with precision closer to the center of the cause of your pain and the other size diffuses the pressure a bit giving it a wider working area. A choice is always good. You are not limited to the knob end, a variety are available at your hardware store, you choose.
