Percussive Massage relaxes stiff muscles like any other massage, with out leaving you feeling drowsy. It stimulates the body and clears the head. Many sports people like to have a percussive massage prior to sporting events. It is helpful in clearing chest congestion, and can help you to breathe more easily after colds or flu.
Percussive massage can be applied as softly or firmly as suits you, depending on your likes and needs. The rapid rhythm is surprisingly easy to relax into and can be sustained for 30 minutes or more.
Percussiver massage employs tapotement techniques from Swedish massage. The amplitude of the stroke makes it more effective in deep tissue than vibrating massagers. It is great for increasing blood circulation and the acupuncture points are also stimulated.
Percussive massage works a little like a meat tenderiser. It is great for smokers who have tight upper backs and stuffy chests, as it addresses both of these problems at the same time.
The rhythm of percussive massage differs slightly from person to person. It is like music therapy where you are the instrument.
