DMS can be applied to all soft tissues in the body resulting in a focused, precise, deep tissue massage. During the initial contact on the body, the device is used to scan for areas within the soft tissues that feel dense, taut, ropey, tender, and overactive. You might feel areas that present a lack of motion and contain trigger points. These areas may be sensitive or painful but the DMS itself is not causing the pain, rather it is revealing tender or painful structures. DMS therapy is highly amenable to myofascial trigger point pain. The vibration and percussion will promote relaxation within the muscle system and lymphatic drainage that helps move trapped fluid that has a tendency to accumulate in some individuals. Breaking up trigger points and providing relief from fluid stagnation are two important benefits of DMS.
