We also provide a few minutes of percussion massage with chiropractic visits. Percussion massage is a type of deep-tissue massage using a hand-held percussive device. Fifteen minutes of percussion massage is the equivalent to having a 30-60 minute traditional massage. This is because the percussion device is able to massage much deeper than hands can. We are also able to do this through the clothing and without any messy oils.
Therapeutic benefits of deep percussion massage and traditional massage include releasing muscle tension, increasing blood circulation, decreasing lymphatic congestion, releasing trigger points, loosening scar tissue and adhesions, and increasing energy flow throughout the body.
