In certain techniques, the same point is tested with different pressing with different force to obtain different information.
Usually there are 2 (light and deep) or 3 (light, medium and deep) depths of touch.
- Light Touch: apply the lightest pressure possible while touching a point, a reflex or another body part.
- Medium Touch: usually this is the pressure we apply while testing a reflex or a point.
- Deep touch: apply a deep pressure while touching a point, a reflex or another body part.
