Percussive therapy utilizes a high amplitude mechanical device to loosen up soft tissue and muscle knots. The tool that our practitioners use to perform this type of therapy is called a TheraGun. This device looks like a power drill and rapidly pounds the problem area of the body with different intensities depending on the pressure applied by the practitioner. It can be very helpful in improving lymphatic flow and reducing lactic acid build up, which can promote quicker muscle recovery, release of muscle knots, and the breakup of scar tissue.
