The Percussor is a device that has a vibrating head, that pulses in and out at a variable rate. The percussor’s action allows the practitioner to work with the fascia of the body at a very deep, penetrating level that has long-lasting dimensions. The smooth force of this percussive action allows one to free both superficial connective tissue and the deep fascia.
When the head of the percussor is applied to the body, those vibrations affect the soft tissues and joints underlying it. This device is very effective at reducing muscular tension, but more importantly, it helps restore full range of motion to the fascia.
Fascia is a type of soft tissue that lines everything inside the body, and it is what allows for motion of the muscles, organs, blood vessels, and more. Without fascia, nothing in the body would be able to move past the other internal parts. Over time, the fascia can become restricted by an accumulation of scar tissue. This scar tissue has various causes: from injuries to surgeries, or even repetative fine motions. This restriction is refered to as a myofascial adhesion (the prefix “myo” means muscle, so myofascia is fascia surrounding the muslces). With the application of the percussor, these adhesions are broken up, freeing up the fascia to move properly. The extent of this release can be much more far reaching than one would expect, because if one area is restricted, the rest of the soft tissue in the area will have to compensate for its lack of motion.
Rapid Release Technology has also effectively relieved chronic pain of patients who have had no previous success with other holistic treatments.
oAfter muscle injury or overuse, scar tissue forms in the body. Constructed from the same tissue as skin and collagen, scar tissue has no blood vessels, and therefore receives no circulation. This causes the tissue to become brittle and constrictive, sequestering nerves, limiting flexibility, reducing range of motion, and causing pain. When activated by vibration waves at an optimal frequency of 170 hertz, the scar tissue begins to break up. This vibration is called Scar Tissue Therapy, and is a safe, painless, and effective method of treatment for several musculoskeletal conditions including:
Limited Range of Motion
Carpal Tunnel Syndrome
Neuromas (pinched nerves)
Contractures (shortening of muscles or joints)
Adhesions (scar tissue)
Temporomandibular Joint Disorder (lock jaw)
Rapid Release Technology uses the power of vibration to break up painful these adhesions within the body to release muscles and nerves, allowing the body to return to an optimal level of health.
Scar Tissue Therapy provides patients with a quick, painless, and lasting treatment option which is effective and free from side effects. Most patients enjoy immediate and lasting relief from symptoms after a Scar Tissue Therapy session. The duration and number of treatments necessary, as well as the level of relief experienced, varies from patient to patient, depending on the specific medical condition and its severity. All patients, however, do experience some level of relief thanks to Rapid Release Technology.
