Best Massage Guns

The best massage guns boost workout recovery by improving blood flow and reducing muscle tension.

The signs of a great workout are unmistakeable: You’re sweaty, you’re tired, and your muscles are on fire. But the next day? That jolt of energy is often replaced with uncomfortably achy muscles. The good news: Soreness, tightness, and just straight up pain isn’t something you have to suffer through. If your average foam roller just isn’t doing the the trick, these are the best massage guns that can help improve your recovery.

If you’ve never used a massage gun, it’s not as intimidating as it may sound. They’re handheld devices that deliver targeted pressure to particular muscle areas, sort of like a jackhammer that’s gentle enough for your body.

This pressure relaxes muscles and fascia (connective tissue that holds things like muscles, organs, bones, and nerve fibers in place) at both the surface level and deep within,

explains Heather Jeffcoat, D.P.T., owner of Fusion Wellness & Physical Therapy in Los Angeles. Massage guns can also help break up scar tissue, which may form after an injury and continue to trigger discomfort long after you’ve healed.

To use a massage gun, lightly sweep it over the muscle, avoiding bony spots. When you’re first starting out, only spend a few minutes on each area. As your body gets used to the treatment over time, you can extend your session up to about 15 minutes max, as experts agree that going longer than this doesn’t provide any benefit and it may actually cause muscle bruising or soreness from overdoing it.

      I just wanted to thank you for everything you've done for me for the past 19 months. I literally could not have reached my goals without you and your practice. You gave me the courage to keep moving forth with my treatment no matter how afraid and anxious I was. You were always there to answer questions and made this whole process so much easier than I expected it to be. It's because of you that my marriage is on the right track, that I can get pregnant and that this part of my life is finally...

      I started seeing Heather to treat my Interstitial Cystitis in November 2016. At this time, I was extremely miserable, in constant pain, and felt as though no one was listening or understood what was going on with my body. I have just finished my last appointment and I can honestly say that my life has completely changed for the better because of Heather and her team of PTs! I live almost completely pain free, and when I do have flare ups, I am able to treat them at home on my own. I am so...
