What is a Massage Gun?
A massage gun is a personal massage device that mimics the pressure and technique of a trained masseuse, and gets right into the sore muscles of your body. It does this by delivering repetitive, high-pressure pulses into your soft tissue.
The Theragun Pro massage gun is the most powerful commercial-grade massage gun you can buy. It was created by Therabody, a company that has dominated the personal massage gun market for a long time. They make a top-quality massage gun with a 360-degree handle, rechargeable batteries, and so much more.
Another massage gun in the Theragun range is the Theragun Elite. Lightweight and easy to handle, this massage gun makes it easy to get into the sorest of muscles, bringing long-needed relief.
How Often Should You Use a Massage Gun?
The Theragun websiterecommends no more than 2 minutes at a time per muscle group, and no longer than 15 minutes if you’re getting a full body massage. However, you can massage yourself 2 or 3 times a day.
To warm-up, you can give your muscle a 30-second activation massage.
If you’re feeling a bit stiff during your workout, a short, 15-second massage can help loosen tight or cramping muscles.
To cool-down, or to help with muscle pain, give yourself a 2-minute massage.
We do recommend that if a muscle-related injury gets serious, to check in with a professional.

Can a Pregnant Woman Use a Massage Gun?
Pregnancy can be a time when increased stiffness and soreness are experienced as the body changes and grows. Massage can bring welcome relief, and a massage gun can be an easy way to achieve that.
However, there are some cautions around using massage guns during pregnancy.
A massage gun should not be used on the stomach or lower back area.
In addition, they are not advised for women suffering from complications such as preeclampsia, deep vein thrombosis, placenta previa or gestational diabetes. As with all therapies during pregnancy, it is advisable to consult with your doctor before using a massage gun, massage chair or zero gravity chair while pregnant, to ensure you are using them safely.
Should You Use a Massage Gun Before or After Stretching?
A massage gun can be beneficial to use both before and after stretching. When used before stretching, it can help increase blood flow and oxygenation to the muscles, which can improve their flexibility and range of motion. After stretching, a massage gun can help gradually loosen muscles that may tighten or cramp as they cool down. Try different ways of incorporating your Thera massage gun into your stretching routine, and see what works best for you.
How To Use a Massage Gun on Legs?
When using your Thera massage gun on your legs, first choose an appropriate massage head. A standard ball head is good for use on the larger muscles of your legs, while the cone attachment can be used on the leg’s IT band to help decrease the amount of lactic acid in the muscle. Apply the gun to your leg, starting with low pressure and gradually increasing it until it feels good. Start at the top of the leg and move the gun down, using slow circular or back-and-forth motions. Experiment with intensity on different areas – you may enjoy higher intensity pressure on the calf muscles, for example, but lower intensity over the shins. Finish your massage by stretching and hydrating for the best muscle health.
