Theragun Percussive Therapy

What is percussion therapy?

Percussion therapy accelerates and enhances the repair of muscle fiber by providing rapid bursts of pressure in concentrated, short-duration pulses deep into the tissues of the body. This enhances the flow of blood to different critical areas, allowing for pain relief and subsequently improving function and range of motion.

It also provides a gentle stretch that in turn enhances flexibility, performance, and physical response.

Percussion therapy relaxes thickened connective tissue, helps to break down adhesions and internal scar tissue, provides improved circulation in the veins and lymphatic system, enhances flexibility through gentle stretching, and increases range of movement.

How it works

Percussion therapy involves a revolutionary handheld device that jolts target areas of the body with gentle pulses of pressure. This action softens muscle tissue in areas where we experience intense stiffness and build up. By rapidly pulsing the muscle fibers with a gentle wave of pressure, we are able to alleviate a lot of pain and improve blood flow.

How percussion therapy differs from traditional massage is by desensitizing the surrounding area of a sore muscle by shocking the muscle fiber gradually until the target area is penetrated. This way, with the help of a percussion therapy device, we are able to target specific muscle soreness without noticing a lot of the pain that comes with it.

What are the benefits of percussion therapy?

Since percussion therapy is utilized to aggressively work and treat deep-tissue muscles, it helps to increase blood circulation and oxygen distribution to various parts of your body, especially on the local topical area. This decreases post-workout muscle pain and cramps, which accelerates the body’s ability to heal and recover.
