Percussion Therapy

The Benefits of Percussion

Percussion therapy helps relieve pain and boost recovery. Percussion therapy accelerates growth and repair of tissues by providing concentrated, rapid, short-duration pulses deep into the tissues of the body. 

What is percussion?

Percussion is a form of therapy, that provides vibrations to the tissues and muscles of the body. The vibrations are created using various massage tools, or equipment, and ripple out deep into the muscles to help break up congestion in the tissue, and promote circulation of chi. 

Who needs it?

Everyone can benefit from percussion.  Percussion therapy can help relax your muscles and relieve the pain, by removing stagnation and promoting the free flow of chi.  Percussion can be used for chronic muscle tightness, as well as general health maintenance.  It helps break up congestion and loosens connective tissue, thereby providing relief from pain and stress.

What does it do?

Percussion Therapy helps to give balance to a target muscle group as well as tone the muscles in that area, all the while relieving tightness and reducing physical stress on the bones and joints. It increases blood circulation to bring more oxygen and nutrients into the muscle, reducing muscle fatigue and soreness.

Is it sore?

The percussion tools are adjusted during each session, to provide more or less pressure based on each clients individual needs. The percussion tools help to relax tight muscles, thereby providing a sense of relaxation and calm, resulting in decreased pain.
