What is Vibration Therapy?
Vibration Therapy is a healing modality which increases blood flow and the myofascial release process.
It involves a percussion gun which uses vibration and pulsation to apply concentrated pressure deep into your muscle tissue and promote recovery. It is also deep tissue therapy, reducing soreness, increasing range of motion, and accelerating recovery time. Vibration therapy provides rapid bursts of pressure into the body’s muscle tissue as the percussion gun head oscillates back and forth to hyper-target specific problem areas. The first percussion gun was believed to have been invented in 2008 by Los Angeles based chiropractor, Jason Werseland.
Vibration Therapy Postpartum Benefits
- Increases blood flow to a specific muscle area
- Reduces inflammation and lactic acid build-up
- Improves circulation and helps rid water retention from pregnancy
- Encourages blood flow which improves the lymphatic system and in-turn breastmilk production
- Melts away muscle tension and releases soreness
- Breaks up knots caused by a hard workout, hunching over, or from carrying, rocking, or feeding a baby or toddler
- Helps warm up muscles ahead of physical activity before hitting the gym
- Boosts recovery time and wonderful when returning to exercising after postpartum
- A 2014 study suggests vibration therapy and massage (both of which are part of percussive therapy) are equally effective methods to prevent DOMS, delayed onset muscle soreness, meaning you’re less likely to feel muscle pain or tightness 24 to 72 hours after an intense workout.
