What is a Massage Gun?


A massage gun is a handy massaging tool for giving yourself deep tissue massage therapy. They are also known as percussion massage treatment guns since they use vibration therapy to relax and loosen tight muscles.


What does a Massage Gun do?


Here is what a percussion massager does when you turn it on and place it on your muscles:

  • When you turn on the massage gun, the head attachment vibrates at the set speed and frequency.

  • The head attachment hits the muscles with quick percussion or vibrating motion.

  • The quick forward and backward movement releases tension in the sore muscle area. It also releases fluid buildups in the muscles that have made them stiff.

  • As a result, the blood flow increases to the muscles helping the body recover and strengthen the muscles.
