What is the difference between percussive and vibration massage?

The main difference between Percussive Therapy and Vibration Therapy is that the Percussive Massager penetrates deeper into the muscle and thus one can target the focus area better. Percussive Therapy focuses on targeted areas by penetrating the muscle deep enough to increase bloodflow, to ensure a successful and quick recovery.

On the other hand, Vibration Therapy can feel good on your skin, but cannot penetrate the deeper layers of the muscles and therefore cannot break up scar tissue. 

Benefits of Vibration Massage :

  • Stress relief
  • Moderate increase in bloodflow

Through the vibration massage muscles are stimulate so that they contract and relax. This can soothe the body from some pain and is often viewed as a pleasant experience. To receive the maximum benefits of a recovery device, a massage that offers percussive therapy is needed.

Benefits of Percussive Massage :

  • Improving range of motion
  • Decreasing muscle soreness and stiffness, especially post-activity
  • Decreasing lactic acid
  • Reducing pain in muscle recovery

Percussive Massage is a treatment designed for soft tissue pain and soreness. This is done by providing short duration rapid pulses into the soft tissue of your body. This accelerates the growth and repair of tissue by increasing the blood circulation of the treated area.

Choosing the right recovery treatment device is essential for maximizing performance.
