How does the Tone In Ten cause my muscles to contract automatically?
When you are standing on the Tone In Ten the natural balance in the human body is disturbed. Many muscles will be activated in order to recover the balance lost. By changing the angles of the joints and the muscles around the joint involved will naturally stretch. This stretching is registered by the muscle spindles, which will send a signal through the afferent nerves to the cortex, which in turn will react with signals through the spinal cord and cause a reflex contraction of the muscles involved. The change of position is thus countered as soon as possible.
