Percussive Massage Therapy Nashville

Fortitude Sports is now offering our exclusive percussive massage therapy in Nashville. In 30, 60, and 90 minute session, we will use a combination of deep tissue massage and percussive massage to help soothe and heal those painful soft tissues.

Percussive Massage Therapy in Nashville is one of the best methods for aiding athletic recovery after training or competitive injuries or simple wear and tear. If you or your athletes suffer from Delayed Onset Muscle Soreness (DOMS) this common condition can be alleviated by stimulating blood flow to the damaged muscle tissues using a percussive approach.

This non-invasive technique is also a good therapeutic approach for general muscle conditioning. Frequently the pain area is not the area that needs to be directly worked, and in doing so can cause more harm. This is where we thrive, in executing our know how to treat the root cause and not simply the symptom. Therefore, we recommend that you combine machine percussion with hands-on massage in tailormade sessions designed by our Nashville sports massage therapists.

History of Percussive Massage Therapy

Percussive massage therapy is a technique with a surprisingly long history. Although techniques for applying hands and elbows in repeated short striking motions have been around for centuries, mechanical percussive massage was invented in the 1800s. In 1868 it surfaced in the form of Tapotement, a method of fast, rhythmic tapping applied to a patient’s body. The technique quickly caught on in Swedish spas and at sporting events and soon many mechanical tools were being created to aid the strategy of delivering fast, repetitive strokes to release tension, promote blood flow and quicken the healing process.

The first handheld tools for percussive massage were pioneered in 1974, commonly known as massage guns. These electrically powered devices allowed massage therapists to accurately target pressure to key areas and apply an even, contoured massage. Now the technique of percussive massage is available in Nashville both its manual and powered varieties at Fortitude Sports Therapy.

My husband pulled his back while playing basketball and Michael did a fantastic job helping him with pain and muscle tightness. We'll definitely see Michael again in the future!

I came in screaming about neck pain and Michael found all these other areas I had no idea were so tight, which then effected my neck and shoulders. Brilliant insight, feeling a ton of relief! Thanks Michael! Highly recommend.

Michael is very knowledgeable; I would say he was the only person in town figured out how to heal my forearms without even touching my forearms muscles. I stopped working out long time ago and I signed up to get back in shape but I felt some sharp pain on my left forearms close my elbow, went to couple of different massage places in town and no luck, found Michael at (Fortitude Sport Therapy) and I am glad I called him, he immediately texted me back when he was not available and asked me when would be a good time to go and see him, I got busy and forgot about making an appointment, he texted me back 2 weeks later and asking me if I feel any relief on my forearms and I was like wow, thank you for getting back with me and checking on me, made an appointment with him for next day, told him about my forearms but his skills are beyond words, he started working on my back which release tons of tension on my forearms and unbelievable .in an hour with him all the pain gone and now I feel so much better, no more forearms sharp pain, he care about his customers, he wanted to make sure I am balanced and he did a great job in making things right and super happy to find him. I have already made an appointment for next week, and I would be going there every month to make sure my body is balanced, and if there is anything out there muscle-related issue, he will find and fix you right there. Thanks, Michael. I would recommend him to all my friends and anyone else who is suffering from muscle pains or muscle injuries. A+++++

I can’t say enough great things about Michael! After having neck and shoulder pain for over a month, a friend recommended I go to Fortitude. I immediately felt relief after my first visit and continued to get better the days following! What a huge weight lifted off my shoulders-literally. I will be singing his praises all over town!

Michael is extremely knowledgeable, professional and accommodating. He is truly after results and he finds them with the process of elimination. I came in with shoulder pain and saw improvement after the first visit. I also left with a good understanding of what I can do to improve and strengthen the proper muscles on my own time. I would highly recommend Michael to anyone with a sports injury.
