Hyperice Vibration/Percussion Tools

What is vibration/percussion therapy?

Percussion therapy is a type of massage therapy designed to soothe sore muscles.  It typically involves using a massage gun, or vibrating roller to rapidly strike the muscle tissue to help increase blood flow for faster recovery, pain relief and improved range of motion.

Benefits of Vibration/Percussion Tools:

  • Decrease Soreness, Pain, and Muscle Tightness – This pain is often associated with Delayed Onset Muscle Soreness (DOMS)—the soreness you feel a day or two after you’ve worked out.
  • Increase Blood Flow – Vibration allows your blood to deliver more vital nutrients in order to aid recovery. This also helps reduce inflammation in the muscles and increase oxygenation.
  • Reduce Muscle Stiffness and Improve Flexibility – Sports massage therapy can improve your range of motion and mobility.
  • Hydrate Deep Tissue – Vibration treatments help hydrate tissue deep within the muscle by forcing fluid out and increasing circulation.
  • Relaxation – This technology promotes relaxation by helping you wind down after an intense workout or stressful day.

Who would benefit from vibration/percussion massage?

  • Athletes experiencing muscle pain or soreness after a workout and want to speed up their recovery
  • Those who want to supplement their physical therapy or manual massage work at home between sessions
  • Those that are at risk for overuse injuries in their hands, forearms and backs may benefit from regular stimulation with a percussion tool to enhance blood flow and prevent injury
  • Those who may suffer from high anxiety or stress and want to stimulate the feel-good hormones released during percussion massage
  • Anyone focusing on improving their muscles flexibility and pliability via improved blood flow and circulation to allow deeper stretching
