WHAT IS PERCUSSIVE MASSAGE THERAPY?

Percussive massage therapy delivers high frequency, repetitive strokes that penetrate deep in to the muscle fibres and surrounding tissue, stimulating the flow of blood and oxygen around the targeted area, almost instantly alleviating muscle tension, tightness and pain.

CORE BENEFITS OF USING PERCUSSIVE MASSAGE THERAPY

Reduction in muscular swelling and inflammation

By using a percussive massage device, the repetitive high powered strokes also help to break down any existing scar tissue, persisting inflammation or muscular swelling.

Furthermore, extracellular fluids such as venous blood and lymphatic fluid are flushed away from the muscle tissue and into the body’s circulatory system.

This drainage of toxic fluid enables muscle fibres to repair quicker and reduce any associated swelling, tension and pain.

The same effect is achieved by a deep tissue massage, which is a very common and well scientifically researched practice.

The benefit of using a MuscleGun device is that it achieves the same results in 5 minutes as a professional masseuse would in 20 minutes, offering instant relief to tight and tired muscles, without the expense or the inconvenience.

Stimulated flow of blood and oxygen

Activating your muscles using percussive massage therapy improves the flow of blood and oxygen circulation around the targeted area. This increased level of oxygen and nutrients directed to the muscle also assists with the drainage of lactic acid and other waste products, as a result promoting faster recovery and decreased risk of injury.

Removing any built up lactic acid, through use of percussive massage, can also eliminate the likelihood of Delayed Onset Muscle Soreness (DOMS).

A recent study found that percussive therapy was as effective as traditional massage in preventing DOMS.
