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.

Mandee (St.Marys, OH)
This has been a huge relief for me during the stressful holiday season. I was having a hard time finding a gift for several friends and family members and they are ALL getting this massager this year! Not only did it massage my stress away, but it made it easier for me to find a great gift that I KNOW my family and friends will love!
