What Is a Percussive Massager?

Percussion massage therapy is a modern treatment used primarily by the fitness industry, but it’s also becoming a popular option in clinical and healthcare settings alike. A percussion massager is a massage gun that resembles the shape of a drill. By using a repetitive pummeling technique, strong vibrational forces and consistent oscillation, the device soothes irritated muscles. The fast and short blows shock muscle fibres, releasing tension and increasing blood flow to the area.

If you’re looking for a device that can relax the muscles while encouraging them to heal, this device is exactly what you’ve been waiting for.

Everything You Need to Know About Our Percussive Massage Guns.

When it comes to muscle recovery, there’s a whole host of techniques that can speed up (and slow down) the process. A percussive massager is the end result of years of dedicated research and testing, bringing together a variety of methods into one powerful device. While original techniques like foam rolling are still a popular option, using a massage gun like the percussive massager can increase accuracy and allow for a more targeted experience.

Ideal for those committed to regular strength and resistance training, a massage gun can help to speed up recovery after each session to keep your fitness schedule on track. Similarly, if you’re regularly irritated by one particular muscle, such as the shoulder, you can use the device to target that spot daily to keep pain at bay.




Are Percussion Massagers Good For You?

When used correctly, percussion massagers are beneficial for the body. As long as you’ve been cleared for regular exercise by a doctor and don’t have any underlying conditions linked to your muscles, the device is a great solution for reducing pain and discomfort. They’re specifically designed to speed up muscle recovery by increasing blood flow and reducing tension – both essential for enhancing mobility and comfort.


How Do Percussion Massagers Work?

Percussion massagers implement a range of techniques in order to achieve the desired effect of muscle relaxation. The drill-shaped device moves forward and backward to physically impact the muscles, mimicking the act of massage pummelling. The head of the massage gun also oscillates and vibrates simultaneously to ensure maximum muscle stimulation. As a result of these repetitive movements and impacts, the body responds by increasing blood flow to the area, in turn providing more oxygen to cells for faster recovery. The massage-like motion also works to loosen the muscles and reduce any pent-up tension.


How Do You Use a Percussion Massage Gun?

To begin using your percussion massage gun, turn on the device using the ON / OFF switch and select your chosen intensity. For first time users, it’s advisable to start on the lowest setting and work your way up to a level that works best for you. Once the device is on and the intensity is correct, move the gun over one muscle group at a time. The impacts of percussion massage guns are much more powerful than a manual massage delivered by a therapist, so you should only focus on each muscle group for a maximum of 2 minutes at a time.


What’s the Difference Between Percussion and Vibration Massagers?

While they’re used to achieve similar results, percussion massagers are much more powerful than their vibrating counterparts. Vibration massagers use a simple system of vibration to stimulate the muscles, whereas percussion massagers use a combination of movement, vibration and oscillation. This achieves a much deeper massage, penetrating into the deeper tissues of the muscle to achieve an enhanced sense of recovery.


What Are the Benefits of Using a Percussive Massager??

There are several benefits of using a percussive massager, including:

  • Increasing blood and lymphatic circulation for all-round wellness
  • Stress relief and relaxation achieved by releasing tension and tissue fluid
  • Enhancing the healing of atrophied muscles to speed up recovery
  • Releasing lactic acid build-up after strenuous exercise
  • Building range of motion and boosting flexibility and joint mobility

How Long Should You Use a Percussion Massager?

Due to the high intensity of percussion massage devices, it is recommended that the device should only be used for a maximum of 2 minutes per muscle group. As you begin to understand your body’s response to massage treatment, you’ll be able to tailor the massage times to suit your requirements best. Always consult a healthcare professional for advice if you have specific muscle-related conditions to consider.
