Massage guns are devices that use vibration and pressure to deliver deep, effective massage therapy. They can be used on the whole body or focused on specific areas such as the head, face, or feet. The massager is made to stimulate muscles and nerve endings so that medical professionals can help with pain relief and other health problems.
Electrical handheld massage devices have been around for a long time, but it’s handheld percussion massage guns which have become the most popular form of at-home massage device, with brands such as Theragun being the most popular.
Theragun massage guns are a portable, hands-free device that creates a therapeutic massage without the need for any pressure. It’s perfect for travel and can be used anytime, anywhere. The units are also designed to take up minimal space and easily fit in your carry-on luggage, and depending on the model you choose, some come with a protective case to keep it safe during travel.
Some massage guns have multiple heads on them, for use on different parts of the body, for example fleshy parts of the body, or places over the top of a bone, like your kneecap or spine. Unlike most handheld massaging devices, massage guns do not require any massage oils, and you can use them on bare skin, with no preparation required at all.
