What is percussive therapy?
Percussion therapy is a type of massage therapy that uses a massage gun to relieve muscle soreness. Commonly used after strenuous workouts, the massage gun delivers strong pulses and vibrations into the muscle tissue for a deep muscle treatment you can’t help but love.
The best part? Boundary-breaking brands like Hyperice
have created portable devices you can use from the comfort of your home.
What are the benefits of percussive therapy?
Beyond alleviating muscle soreness (thereby aiding muscle recovery), percussion therapy can increase blood flow, decrease tension deep within the muscle, and even improve range of motion. It’s also seriously relaxing, meaning it’s also good for your overall wellbeing.
