The main difference between percussive therapy and vibration therapy is that percussive therapy reaches deeper into the muscle, 60% deeper, in fact. While vibration therapy feels good on the surface of the body, it’s a “global” experience as opposed to a targeted one. Percussive therapy targets treatment areas by reaching deep enough into the muscle to increase the amount of blood flow and oxygen needed for efficient treatment and recovery. Also, because Theragun Percussive Therapy devices touch the body and come off of it 40 times per second, the brain does not acclimate to the stimulation, making the therapy more effective.
