Essentially, a massage gun is a tool used to give yourself deep and intensive massages. To achieve enough stimulation in the muscles, you usually need to go to a professional massage therapist, but a massage gun lets you get the same results in your own home. We’ve listed a few reasons why you should consider giving it a go.
You can use a massage gun easily at home without the hassle. You can use it to stimulate connective tissue, increase blood circulation and release trigger points. The massage gun is great to use if you work out a lot as it prevents stiffness in muscles and joints, but also helps to make your body more supple. It’s easy to use and you can get better access and pressure in places that other massage products don’t quite reach.
Benefits of a massage gun?
Massage is unbeatable when it comes to kick-starting stiff and tired muscles. If you’ve done a hard session, it can feel tough to do another one the next day. Our massage gun can help you warm up faster and get you going. Our Flowgun has five vibration levels that you can adjust to suit your needs. If you are feeling really stiff one day, you can start at the lowest level and slowly build up as your muscles feel ready.
The massage gun can also help after training. Running it at a low intensity can work well to give your muscles a chance to recover. This stimulates the muscle and acts as an anti-inflammatory. Studies show that a post-workout massage can actually reduce soreness!
Supple muscles mean better movement and mobility. Better mobility means you can get more out of your exercises, such as deeper squats, and maximise your results. A massage gun, and here we’re looking at Flowgun in particular, is so powerful that it can get right down into even the hardest, most tense muscles and soften them up again.
When you buy it, a massage gun may seem like a major investment, but in the long run, your wallet will thank you. You’ll probably need to spend less money on massage treatments, as the massage gun gives you effective massages on your own. Even better, if you’d like to try Flowgun, it comes with a customer satisfaction guarantee, so if it doesn’t hit the spot, you can always get your money back.
So how do you use a massage gun?
When using your massage gun, it’s a good idea to start gently, preferably at the lowest level so you learn how it works and what suits you and your body. It may feel a bit weird at first, but in time, as your body gets used to it, you can increase the strength. The lowest strength is a good place to start to warm up your muscles. It’s a good idea to start with the round head and then move on to the others. Read how to use the different heads here.
Work out what feels best for your body and feel free to put in a bit of extra work where you have sore muscles. It should feel good but it may still hurt a little. A massage gun is also ideal when used in conjunction with exercise. It works well to soften your muscles before your workout, but it’s also handy to use afterwards for recovery and as a preventative measure against stiff muscles and joints.
What are the benefits of a massage gun?
There are several useful features of a massage gun:
Massage is great for rehabilitation. It speeds up the healing process but also helps to prevent new injuries. It improves circulation in the muscles so that the areas that are injured heal faster.
Massage guns are beneficial because they improve your blood circulation which makes your muscles and body feel good. They offer so many health benefits such as increased mobility, improved sleep and a stronger immune system. They can also help with depression and anxiety.
A massage gun also works well for managing stress. Most people experience stress every now and then. And a massage gun can be very useful for dealing with stress as massage releases endorphins that make you feel better.
The aim of massage is to relax the muscles and reduce tension in the body. This leads to shorter recovery time and more flexible and efficient muscles. But a massage gun also strengthens muscles by creating contractions that have a calming effect on the nervous system.
