PERCUSSION THERAPY Treatment

Percussion massage therapy provides the health benefits of both pressure and rapid vibration. There is ample evidence to support the therapeutic benefits of percussion therapy, and it has become a staple amongst athletes as a pre and post workout massage technique.

Percussion therapy is often incorporated in our acupuncture sessions to increase circulation, mitigate pain, release muscle tension, improve range of motion, promote recovery and optimize athletic performance.

Studies have also shown that percussion therapy can improve your overall quality of sleep, allowing patients to fall asleep faster and stay asleep through the night.

Percussion therapy TREATMENT METHODS

Percussion therapy is an excellent technique for managing chronic and acute pain. The rapid, vibrating percussive element confuses pain receptors and nerves that are sending pain signals to the brain. This directly reduces soreness and pain in ailing muscles, joints, tendons and fascia, making percussion therapy a more responsive and impactful style of massage for pain management.

Percussion therapy is an excellent technique for managing chronic and acute pain issues. The percussive element allows the massage to penetrate deeper into more layers of muscle tissue than typically available via traditional massage. This helps to relieve pressure and tightness in knots and injured or ailing muscles, fascia, joints and tendons, making percussion therapy a more responsive and impactful style of massage ideal for pain management.

Percussion therapy can be used to target specific muscle groups that are tensed up due to stress and anxiety. It is also normal for physical pain to further amplify stress, anxiety and depression. By addressing the physical element of stress, your body can then prioritize your mental health.
