Percussion Therapy

What is percussion therapy?

It uses a massage gun, such as a Theragun, to apply high-speed percussion, jolts of pressure directly to soft tissue. Massage therapists often use percussion through hacking methods, which is demonstrated here at https://www.physio.co.uk/treatments/massage/our-massage-techniques/hacking.php Manual percussion such as hacking is used to stimulate the muscle and is often used in sports massage as part of a pre-workout massage to warm up and awaken the muscle tissues before an event. The high-speed percussion provided by a massage gun includes additional benefits.
