Massage guns bring relaxation into your home
They are now seen more and more often, mostly in connection with athletes during regeneration - massage guns. Thanks to their built-in rechargeable battery, these handy massage devices can be taken anywhere and used, e.g. in the office or the gym. But how does such a massage gun work?
As with a classic massage, pressure is exerted on the tissue, only this is not done by hands or fingers, but by massage heads that are moved back and forth at high frequency. The principle according to which the massage gun works is called percussion massage. With the help of a massage device, short and frequent pulses of pressure are applied to the tissue, which causes the muscle tissue to vibrate and also reach the deep tissue of the muscles. In this way, the muscles can be loosened. This provides relaxation and well-being, whether after sport, after getting up or after a stressful day.
What you should keep in mind when using a massage gun
Thanks to positive practical experience, the use of a massage gun is becoming increasingly popular, especially among athletes. However, for optimal use, there are also some points to consider for the massage:
- You should only use the massage gun on soft tissue, not on bones, the abdomen or in the head area.
- Always start with a low intensity and approach slowly, the application should not cause pain.
- The application should not last too long, because too intensive and long application can also damage the muscles. We recommend that you do not use the massager for longer than 15 minutes.
- The massage gun should not be aimed at a single spot for too long, a few seconds at most. It is recommended to massage the affected muscle region in slow movements.
Not only do you usually have to leave the house and make an appointment in advance for a classic massage, regular massages are also hard on the wallet. With a massage gun, you can massage yourself at any time and offer your body soothing relaxation.
Ideal for warming up the muscles
The fact that you should warm up before sports to prepare the muscles for the upcoming load and to avoid injuries should be understood by everyone. This can be extensive stretching exercises, light jogging or a massage gun. The advantage of a massage gun is that it loosens the muscles and leads to an increase in the range of motion of the muscle without negative effects on muscle strength.
Regeneration after the workout
As soon as the workout is over, regeneration begins and thus indirectly also the preparation for the next training session. Depending on the intensity of the workout, there is a risk of muscle soreness in the next few days, which reduces performance and motivation. The use of massages and percussive vibration devices were able to significantly reduce muscle soreness compared to no measures.
Relaxation through muscle loosening
Who doesn't know it? After a long day at work, often with hours of sitting in front of the computer, our muscles are tense. With the massage gun you can massage yourself specifically and loosen the muscles for a relaxing evening. Besides that, the massages can also be used before sleeping or after getting up for relaxation.
Approx. 2 minutes per muscle group are sufficient to loosen the muscles. In addition, the massage gun is very compact and can be taken anywhere. This means you can immediately loosen your muscles and prevent muscle tension at every opportunity.
The electric motor of the massage gun runs smoothly and quietly. This means you can also use it in a relaxed way on the sofa while watching a film without not being able to hear the sound.
Long battery life & charging via USB
Thanks to the built-in lithium-ion battery, you can use the massage gun for some time before it needs to be recharged. When charging, you have the advantage with our massage gun that you can charge it almost anywhere with the included USB-C cable.
