When world-renowned martial artist, Angela Lee, said: "I love percussion massage! It's the best way to get rid of knots, keeping me feeling loose." At Massage Guns, we know how much she meant it because it is a Game Changer in the recovery world. We are easily one of the foremost innovators of percussive therapy.
WHAT IS PERCUSSIVE THERAPY?
Percussion therapy is a type of massage that delivers a series of rapid blows that penetrate deep into the soft tissues of the body to promote pain-relief, relaxation, and tissue repair. This type of massage also improves blood flow and range-of-motion of the muscle. When done by a masseuse, the percussion strokes are applied through a series of quick, light, strikes from the hands and wrist. The more popular option is to use a handheld percussion massager which is also known as vibration massagers.
From providing relief to aching muscles and making it easier for those who work out and those who sit in front of a computer all day to manage their health, our hand-held percussive massagers – Massage Gun – provides big wellness benefits.
BENEFITS OF PERCUSSIVE/VIBRATIONAL MASSAGE
- Improved Athleticism
Professional athletes use percussive massagers all the time! Angela Lee already corroborated this fact. Vibration/percussion therapy prevents and treats cramping. It stretches the muscles and connective tissues, improves the athletes' overall responsiveness and performance. In fact, it has been medically proven that percussion massage generates 30x more powerful contractions of the muscle, which enhances muscle strength and recovery time. The improved blood circulation reduces muscle soreness and fatigue, enabling athletes to perform longer and more frequently.
- Pain Relief
The Ohio State University Medical Center recommends using vibration massage as a method of pain relief that doesn’t involve drugs. The vibrational massage helps relieve painful conditions by creating numbness in the afflicted area. Vibration can also help relax muscles surrounding the painful site, which can further reduce the pain. Percussion massage relieves pain and muscle soreness. The brain processes pain from specific frequencies and percussion therapy interjects with those frequencies to cause pain relief.
Since stress is an everyday part of life, you have to take out time to relax. You don't want to pass out due to undue stress. Vibration movement both relaxes the underlying muscles and creates a body-wide sense of relaxation. Vibration or percussive massage is an ideal relaxation tool. It stimulates the blood flow, promotes deeper breathing, relaxation, and reduces overall stress and anxiety. And it feels great!
