PERCUSSION THERAPY

Percussive massage is a breakthrough treatment for soft tissue pain.  Percussive massage accelerates the growth and repair of tissues by providing concentrated, rapid, short-duration pulses deep into the tissues of the body.  This heavily increases blood flow to the area causing pain relief and an increasing range of motion and function.  Percussive massage also provides a gentle stretch to the muscles and connective tissues improving responsiveness and performance.

Percussive massage and muscle stimulation are beneficial in a variety of medical and cosmetic applications, including:

  • Relaxing of thickened connective tissue and fascia.

  • Breaking down of adhesions and internal scar tissue, present after injuries or surgery.

  • Increased venous and lymphatic circulation.

  • Elongating muscle fiber, especially when spasms, stiffness and restrictions are present.

  • Increase range of movement by relieving stiff joints.
