Benefits of Percussion Theragun Massage Therapy
Improves Flexibility and Muscle Plasticity
Improves flexibility and plasticity in your muscles. Our muscles constantly need to adjust due to changes in our environment, activity level, and other factors in our daily lives. It is very important for our muscles and body to be flexible as it prevents injuries, pain in the back and other large muscle groups, and problems with balance.
Injury Prevention and Recovery
Improves the responsiveness of your muscles, which results in stronger muscles, preventing injury. Relaxes your muscles and relieves tension in the body, which allows for a shortened recovery time.
Promotes Blood Circulation
Increases blood circulation throughout your vessels. This is extremely important as it allows you to maintain healthy oxygen levels and blood flow throughout your body and helps vital organs such as your heart and lungs function effectively. Increased blood circulation also helps your muscles function properly.
Releases Lactic Acid in the Body
If you have an intense workout or overuse your muscles, it is harder for the body to get enough oxygen, which can lead to lactic acid buildup, causing muscle pain and soreness. Percussion massage gun use can help release the buildup of this acid by moving it away from the muscles to nearby tissues.
Helps to reduce inflammation in the body by releasing and dispersing fluid around your cells away from your muscles. This helps to relax tense muscles and reduce muscle soreness and tightness.
Breaks Down Scar Tissue
The deep tissue percussive therapy of a massage gun also helps to break down scar tissue. The massage gun will reach deep within your muscle tissues and fibers, breaking down adhesions caused by scar tissue.
Improves Lymphatic Flow
Fewer muscle knots and muscle tightness means better drainage in the lymphatic system. When the lymph moves freely, the body can excrete toxins and waste effectively. A better lymphatic system means a healthier immune system and improved metabolism.
