Research Information Sheets
This fact sheet covers research on the use of localised vibration massage to reduce post exercise soreness and speed recovery. This is excellent information if you exercise or play sport.
This fact sheet covers research showing the use of vibration massage to relax/lengthen muscles and increase joint ROM. This has significant implication for any rehabilitation.
We understand the vibration massage causes muscle to relax, and we speculate that a localised increase in blood flow will aid healing. However, scientists used a battery of tests and investigations to fund out what it really does. Their findings are pretty amazing.
For a long time people have seen the benefits professional sports people have gained from massage. People (including myself) have tried to make these benefits available to the wider public. This article discusses such attempts and summarises the research into their effectiveness.
This article discusses research which found that sore spots masseurs find alter the way your nervous system controls muscles, resulting in poorly coordinated movement and an increased risk of injury. These issues are easy to finds and correct with your massager.
This describes how as a result of every day stresses and strains issues build up in your muscle that can lead to long term problems. Again these can be dealt with using your massager
