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

Stacey (IL)
I love the Wahl Deluxe Heat Therapy unit! I have patellar tendonitis in my right knee and this unit has the right attachments to alleviate my pain. The heated attachment head feels great and really soothes the intense pain that I can have, while the triad attachment head conforms wonderfully around my knee and massages all the sore spots at once. The ergonomics of this massager unit make it easy to hold at different angles and the long cord makes it convenient to use anywhere. I highly recommend this unit, thanks Wahl Massagers!
