Tapotement Massage

Suggested Products

Tapotement Massage

This comes from the French word, tapoter, meaning “to tap or drum.” Therapists refer to this as the percussion stroke.

Tapotement is the rapid, percussive tapping, slapping and cupping of the massaged area. It is used to more aggressively work and strengthen deep-tissue muscles. It increases local blood circulation and can even help tone muscle areas.

Tapotement is often used to warm-up athletes before an event.

Because of the tapping nature, don’t use this technique over bony areas or sensitive muscles. Do not use over the kidneys, the spine or the back of the knee. If you have questions, always consult a physician before using.

Customer Testimonials

Elizabeth (Corvallis, OR)
I have had hip problems for years and have even had surgery on one to repair torn cartilage. Because of this hips always feel stiff and tight and cause me pain. Previously I tried rolling on a tennis bowl or massaging it myself but it didn't work very well. I'm happy to say that the Wahl Deep Tissue massager has been working miracles. I also brought it home over the Thanksgiving holiday and my whole family tried it out. I'm pretty sure all of them are running out to go by one for themselves now. I would highly recommend this to anyone who has a trouble spot that is hard to reach, or just tight muscles in general. It is very easy to use and well built.
