Percussive therapy is a treatment for muscle and ligament problems and related myofascial conditions.
The percussor instrument delivers waves of percussive impulses deep into the tissues of the body. Percussor therapy is very effective for releasing muscles. Compression waves promote an increase in circulation and lymphatic flow and a decrease in muscle spasm. The Percussor can be used to 'warm-up' muscles and set proper tonus prior to athletic events. The instrument can also be used following an event, or exercising, to 'flush' muscles and minimize soreness.
The percussive action of the percussor is ideal for releasing joints. The power of multiple percussive waves accumulates to loosen up 'stuck' areas without using heavy thrusting forces. Additionally, these waves heighten neurological awareness of specific areas of the body and facilitate energetic normalization.
