Are you in pain or in need of a relaxing massage? Don't have the time or the opportunity to visit a physio? The massage gun is the tool that can allow you to live your life to the fullest.
When physiotherapists and chiropractors started using it, we saw the potential of the tool. We then refined and improved the massage gun. We made it available to people in their everyday lives. The result were the giants of the market: the Flowgun One, Flowgun PRO 2.0, Flowgun GO 2.0 and Flowgun Pocket.
Our massage guns enable your active lifestyle. Learn more about our Flowguns and which one is best for you.
A massage gun is an auxiliary tool designed to simplify and make accessible self-administered massage. In general, a massage gun consists of a handle, a percussion arm, an interchangeable massage head and a battery-powered motor. The motor produces vibrations to the nozzle which in turn form powerful blows to the part of the body to which the massage gun is directed. The fast and high-intensity strokes allow the massager to provide a massage sensation far beyond traditional massage.
With high-intensity impact massage, the massage gun softens connective tissue, increases blood circulation, and loosens muscle knots. You can use the massage gun to relax, as an addition to your warm-up, for injury prevention and rehabilitation or for recovery of tired muscles. What's more, a massage gun is portable, giving you access to massage anytime, anywhere.
Use the massage gun whenever you experience pain, discomfort or stiffness - you'll feel the difference. The massage gun is for those who want to live a life without limitations.
Massage has positive effects on the body. Among other things, massage prevents and relieves muscle aches, counteracts stress, strengthens the immune system, and increases blood circulation. The massage gun can therefore be used to complement relaxation, effective warming, improved mobility, and optimised recovery.
If you have the desire to live a life of movement, but find that you are limited by your body, you should have a massage gun.
The massage gun gives you a moment to relax in a hectic everyday life. Massage has many physiological benefits, but the benefit of enjoying a moment and taking care of yourself is perhaps the greatest.
Anyone can use a massage gun. It can be used for a variety of purposes – to complement recovery or for relaxation. Or as we like to put it: “For athletes and everyone else.”
As there are no known adverse physiological effects of massage (quite the opposite!), you can use a massage gun daily if you wish. For safe use, we recommend to start massaging the major muscle groups first and avoid sensitive areas. We also recommend increasing the intensity of the treatment gradually.
Start by selecting the nozzle best suited to the treatment you are looking for. Different nozzles have different purposes and perform different functions. If you're looking for a relaxing treatment, a soft massage head is preferable, while a hard or pointed massage head is better if you want to go deep into the muscle and treat a trigger point, for example.
Then select the impact strength/treatment program. You can adjust the intensity during the treatment depending on how you feel about the treatment. Some body parts and problem areas are more sensitive than others and need to be treated more gently and vice versa.
To massage the muscle, move the massage gun lightly over the area you want to treat. The important thing to remember when using a massage gun is to start the treatment gently and then gradually increase the intensity and the number of times you use it. As with many things, it is a matter of getting your body used to it slowly.
Make sure to massage each different body part in intervals. Our recommendation is not to massage in one place for more than a minute at a time. If an area feels too tender for spot treatment, you can massage around it to relieve tension and pain.
Massaging with a massage gun is effective. When muscles and ligaments are exposed to the treatment, the surrounding connective tissue is softened. You experience less stiffness and increased mobility. The intensity of the impact massage releases tension and increases the body's blood circulation. Other massage tools or hands cannot massage with the same effect as a motorized head and therefore do not reach as deeply into the tissue.
If you don't know what to look for, it's a good idea to look at the following: battery life, impact force, stroke length, weight, nozzles, and treatment program.
If you plan to massage a lot for a long time and often, choosing a massager with a long battery life may be a good idea to avoid running out of battery power in the middle of a treatment. Our Flowguns have a battery life of up to eight hours. How long the battery lasts after charging depends on the program and the force with which you massage. Generally, the charging time is around four hours.
The impact is what determines how deep the massage will be. The higher the impact force, the deeper the massage. Our Flowguns have an impact force between 1400 and 3200 strokes per minute. The number of strokes varies depending on the treatment program chosen.
Different body areas need different types of treatment, depending on the muscle size and the cause of the pain. For example, a more considerable force may benefit from a more robust treatment program. Our Flowguns have between four and six treatment programs.
The stroke length is the length the stroke reaches before the engine stops. Our Flowguns have a stroke length from 8 to 12 mm.
To avoid muscle fatigue during use and to be able to take the massage gun wherever you go, it mustn't weigh too much. Our Flowguns weigh approximately 340 and 970 grams.
Just as the treatment can be varied in different treatment programs, the massage can be altered using interchangeable nozzles.
Here you can read how massage guns can help with various problems and ailments.
A new era has arrived, with products like Flowgun being used to relieve muscle pain and discomfort and treat soft tissue. But how does Flowgun actually work?
Sciatica is a collective name for a range of symptoms in different parts of the body. It mainly affects the back and legs because that’s where the nerve fibres that form the sciatic nerve converge.
One way to treat heel spurs is through massage. Massaging the area can help both in the short and long term, as it can provide immediate pain relief and act as a preventative measure.
Fascia is really a type of connective tissue, the thin membrane of tissue that binds together all the components of our body. In the past, it was believed that the only task of the fascia is to keep everything in place, but in recent years it has become clear that it actually has more functions than that.
