Benefits Of Percussion Massage

Let’s explore the benefits in more detail.

  1. Medical Applications. There are times when percussive therapy is used for post-surgery treatment, as it’s known to break down internal scar tissue while increasing venous and lymphatic circulation. This speeds up the healing time. Percussion also treats  stiff joints and muscle spasms, as it elongates the muscle fibers. This relaxes both the muscles and fascia, therefore preventing any future occurrence of muscle spasms.

  2. Enhanced Athletic Performance. World-class trainers use percussion massagers on professional athletes all the time. Basketball superstar Kyrie Irving received percussion treatment during the breaks of the 2017 NBA Finals games, in order to prevent and treat cramping.  Also, since this type of massage stretches the muscles and connective tissues, it improves the athletes’ overall responsiveness and performance.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.

  3. Rehabilitation. This type of therapy speeds up the rehabilitation process of muscles that have been injured due to disease, injury or surgery. The contractions caused by the percussor strengthen the muscles. This is extremely beneficial for people who can’t participate in physical therapy. It is used on patients with partial or  full paralysis to stimulate the muscles, prevent non-use atrophy, and improving reflex responses in which the nerves respond to stimulation.

  4. Wellness Benefits. There are overall health and wellness benefits as well such as: lowering blood pressure; enhancing immunity; improving sleep; eliminating toxins; improving digestion; improved organ/tissue health; improving sleep patterns; and balancing the autonomic nervous system. Great stuff!

  5. Relaxation. Like most massages, this type of massage is very relaxing and feels amazing.

  6. Reduced Stress Levels. By improving blood and oxygen circulation, percussion massage promotes deeper breathing levels and relaxation; thus, reducing stress and anxiety.

  7. Pain Relief. Percussion massage relieves pain and muscle soreness without the use of drugs. Your brain processes from very  specific frequencies and percussion massage interject with those frequencies to cause pain relief.

  8. Cosmetic Procedures And Scaring. Percussive massage helps in freeing adhesions, breaking down scar tissue, and decreasing the inflammation that can sometimes follow cosmetic procedures. This accelerates the healing and recovery time of the patient.

  9. Mobility & Flexibility. Flexibility and mobility is improved due to relaxation and stretching of muscles tissues and fascia.
