Handheld gun massagers are the next biggest health superstars. These babies are everywhere - think about the last time you picked up a wellness magazine and didn’t run into a big juicy article on gun massagers. But not so long ago, it would’ve been impossible to imagine carrying pro-grade handheld massagers for percussion therapy in your sling pack. Now you’ll find them at homes, gyms, spas and even at chiro practice. They are the hottest wellness gear and hugely popular with both men and women. So, what’s responsible for the shift? It’s not that handheld massagers were new when they exploded into the fitness scene in recent years. It took the right alchemy of advanced tech, timing, social media and awareness to ensure these handheld massagers had their Swiss chard toast moment.

Why Massagers Work To Relieve Pain & Stress                                                                

Many might think of massage therapy as a modern trend, but it’s not. The origin of massage dates back to 5000 years and more in India - around 3000 B.C. Ayurvedic massages were used for natural healing and ‘life health’. We learn from renowned wellness expert Deepak Chopra:

“Ayurvedic massage combines the 5,000-year-old Indian principles of Ayurveda—the science of life—and pressure points. This type of massage is designed to create balance among the mind, body, and spirit, and help the body heal itself. It’s sometimes referred to as an “oil massage” because it typically incorporates warm herb essential oils, as well as time-honored and non-traditional strokes and kneading that suit an individual’s needs.”

Why Handheld Gun Massagers Proved To Be So Effective                                             

When it comes to health and fitness, nothing hits the popularity chart without good reasons. Kale didn’t become an overnight food sensation without actual benefits, and the gun massager didn’t hit stardom within the wellness circle and athletes because of social media. The benefits are real and many.

  • A post workout session with a handheld gun massager relaxes stiff muscles by releasing tension and fluid deep within. 
  • It increases tissue metabolism. 
  • Helps heal atrophied muscles by “waking them up” gently and faster
  • Improves blood and lymphatic circulation allowing increasing muscle oxygen
  • A quick handheld gun massage session can help release lactic acid build up often caused due to hard workout..
  • Improves mobility by stimulating nerve receptors
  • Deeply massages collagen and thus breaking up scar tissues
  • Improves joint flexibility
These are but just a fraction of benefits you can get from the handheld gun massager.

3 Top Recommended Gun Massagers That We Loved                                                  

There’s no dearth of gun massagers out there. But know which ones’ are worth the penny. Here we have listed the top tested gun massagers.

Vortix Melo Gun Massager
This is the best handheld massager for most people. It’s designed for everyday wellness buffs as well as athletes. It’s the best portable gun massager we’ve tested. With 6 intensity levels, this massage gun effectively offers a second-to-none muscle relaxing experience using combined frequency, amplitude, and torque. The 6 head attachments are designed to massage different parts of the body - back, neck, feet, legs, hips, and arms.

Hyperice's Hypervolt Handheld Massager
This is another great choice for a massage gun. This is Hyperice’s entry-level gun massager and not as high-powered but that doesn't mean anything when it comes to getting the job done. This is a perfect choice for anyone who enjoys a post-workout muscle relaxation session.

Theragun Pro
Need to take your performance to the next level in the next NFL season? Thergun Pro is designed for the pro athletes in mind. Their PRO version provides 'smart' features with Therabody app that allows you to track your progress and data with Bluetooth connectivity.
