The most common mistakes people make using percussion massage (massage guns)
There are several common mistakes people make when using a massage gun. These include pressing in too hard, and using the machine where inappropriate, such as over injured tissue, bony areas, blood vessels and nerves. However, the biggest mistake by far is by using conventional massage techniques rather than those appropriate for a vibrating massager. This dramatically reduces the effectiveness of the treatment and increases the risk of injury.
Unfortunately this is very common though because most “experts” demonstrating massage gun usage are experts in conventional massage that have not understood that vibration massage requires different techniques.
In the video below we discuss this, then show you the appropriate safe and effective way to use a vibration massager.
