Percussion massage is applied using precise, rhythmic and energetic strokes over the area of the body to be treated with a pressure, rhythm and repetitions that vary according to the needs of the user and the size and depth of the muscle to be reached. It is particularly indicated if we suffer from muscle pain that occurs after exercise (soreness).
Percussion massage performed manually involves some effort, energy and some training in physiotherapy; however, with a massage gun, anyone with a minimum of common sense can perform a percussion massage session with the advantage that for most areas to be treated one can apply the massage oneself without the need to resort to another person.
The many benefits of percussion massage
- Relieves muscle pain
- Accelerates recovery after soft tissue injuries
- Improves muscle tone
- Stimulates blood flow to the treated muscle by increasing its oxygenation
- Stimulates the drainage of accumulated fluids in the muscles
- Improves joint mobility
- Relieves muscle tension by producing relaxation
