Therapeutic Percussion Techniques

Using Percussion for a variety of reasons

Percussion is often noted as a subset of other types of bodywork. However, on its own merits I feel that it deserves to be considered in a section by itself.

What is Percussion?

Percussion is at its most simple form, striking the body with very soft pressure. It is not a form of rubbing, pressing, or stroking. It can be jarring, but it is most useful when it is soft enough to be pleasurable. It should never be painful, nor should it leave marks on the body afterwards.
