The Science Behind
Gravity Percussive therapy devices were
developed on these studies:
Massage guns can help relieve muscle stiffness and soreness . The massage gun works by applying pressure to the muscle, tendons, and ligaments to help them become relaxed, thereby reducing spasms and painful contractions.
Adjust to the desired strength with a simple touch, and feel how the pulsing revolves around your sympathetic nervous system ; the one that prepares your body for activity and exercise. Use the massage gun to warm-up before a workout ; simply aim for the muscle group that you want to train, and feel the results immediately.
Between sets, you can also use a massage gun to loosen tight muscles, and get the most out of your next set. Use your massage gun for 15 seconds on the desired area to increase blood flow, stimulate and relax the muscle for the remainder of your workout.
After Your Workout
After a good workout, your mind is in an elevated state, but your aching body can bring you down. Massage guns can relax your nervous system, helping you recover in time for your next session. By stimulating your parasympathetic nervous system, you are allowing your body to enter in recovery mode, helping it fight soreness and pain.
Massage guns stimulate the deep tissues, which activates the nerve receptors responsible for dilating blood vessels and enhancing blood flow rate. Muscle contractions help regulate the lymph, while eliminating waste and contaminants from the body tissues.
When oxygen levels in the body are low, lactic acid builds up in the bloodstream and the body can struggle to burn it. This common problem usually happens after exercise, which can lead to cramps in your muscles. By using a massage gun, you can help the body decrease lactic acid and other toxins levels.
A percussion massager can help you with general aches and body discomfort. The pulsating effect of the massager penetrates deep into soft tissue and works out knots, soreness, pain, numbing and general body aches.
The increased blood flow brought to the area by percussive massage provides an increased range of motion, while the fast contractions of the GRAVITY gun can help to strengthen the less-used stabilization muscles. The percussive massager helps to relax thickened connective tissue, and can even help to break down scar tissue that may be limiting your range of motion.
A fascia is a band or sheet of connective tissue, primarily collagen, beneath the skin that attaches, stabilizes, encloses, and separates muscles and other internal organs.
Healthy fascia is essential for good posture and movement, as it’s role is to generate, absorb, direct, disperse and release the energy you need for your everyday activity.
To be effective, it needs to be both elastic and stable. In essence, percussion therapy strengthens your fascia tissue, leading to increased sensory perception, body awareness, stability, tissue reactivity, blood and lymphatic flow, mobility, tissue remodeling and motor control, while decreasing pain.
Massage therapy is a beneficial treatment for maintaining and improving flexibility and motion. By working on muscles, connective tissues, tendons, ligaments and joints, regular massage can improve your elasticity and range of motion, keeping your joints more fluid and making them less injury-prone.
Percussion therapy is a great way to relax stressed muscles, stimulate blood flow, improve pliability and facilitate your daily stretching.
One of many benefits of stretching is an improvement of blood circulation, which aids in illness recovery and disease prevention, while improving posture and joints range of motion. Incorporating GRAVITY’s Vibration Therapy to your routine will help reduce soreness after a workout, and allow greater freedom of movement when exercising.
By preventing a buildup of lactic acid in your blood, you can easily lengthen your workouts while helping your body to recover faster.
Massage provided by a massage gun helps to improve muscle contraction, which results in muscles and fascia tissues being lengthened and strengthened.
A great way to help your body recover is to make massage therapy part of your lifestyle and post-workout routine. The massage’s primary objective is to help relax the muscles, and alleviate stress in the body.
This practice will further reduce the healing period in between exercises, by releasing tension and fluid deep in the muscles, to increase tissue metabolism.
