Did yesterday’s workout make your muscles cry for help today? Don’t worry, this is a positive sign that you’re on your way to becoming a stronger and healthier version of yourself (even if it doesn’t feel like it yet!).

Percussion therapy, through the use of a tool, is a way of delivering bursts of pressure to soft body tissue via short-duration pulses. In short, it’s like using a mini jackhammer on your body (a very nice mini jackhammer).

Using a handheld massage device like the Flow PRO or the Flow MINI, you can deliver a series of short pressure bursts into your soft tissue, like your muscles, tendons and ligaments.

There are a number of reasons…

2020 is racing by and before we know it Christmas will be upon us. It can be a challenging time of year which is why so many people begin their gift shopping months in advance, which is why we’ve made life easier for you with this list on why a Flow MINI is the ideal Christmas Present.

  1. Working From Home is set to continue into the new year. Covid-19 doesn’t show signs of going away any time soon and one of the side effects of that is office workers continuing to base themselves at their kitchen table or a poorly…

With more and more handheld massage devices entering the market, you might be forgiven for thinking that there’s little difference between them all besides the price and colour. But if you take a closer look you’ll see that there’s more to these recovery tools than meets the eye.
