You probably asked yourself, “What on earth is that?” when you first saw it. The massage gun is a potent piece of equipment with a head shaped somewhat like a drill and a squash ball. And it is altering the massage industry.
But what it is? What does it do? How do you use it? And what are all of those attachments for? Here are all the answers you need.
Body soft tissue is treated with percussive therapy using massagers. To release the muscles and speed up the healing process, it is necessary to repeatedly hammer them up to 2,600 times per second.
Modern massage guns are powerful because of recent technological advancements. They can be compared to a massage therapist who uses their elbows and knuckles to release tension when equipped with the appropriate attachment. There is nowhere for your deepest knots to hide.
Uses for massage weapons include:
- Muscle weariness
- Effects of DOMS and lactic acid accumulation
- Sciatica and back pain
- A sore neck
- Leg ache
- Limited range of motion and tension
- Issues with posture, such as stiffness from home desk use
You might also be surprised by these additional advantages:
1. Improved Mobility
After receiving percussive therapy, most patients merely feel a little bit more mobile. It significantly aids in the release of muscle tissue that has become stuck or stiff from prolonged sitting in a vehicle or on an airplane.
2. Greater Awareness of One’s Body
People who weren’t aware they had tight spots can have their brains stimulated to heal those areas by using percussion therapy.
3. Awakening You
Who needs coffee in the morning? All the advantages of a reviving morning massage are also provided by massage guns, which also increase circulation and help you become more alert.
To ensure safety and achieve the best results, follow these steps:
1. Select the appropriate attachment
Different levels of precision and stiffness are available in the massage gun attachments, allowing you to customize your treatment to target particular areas of your body. For treating more sensitive areas of the body, such as the neck and lower back, duller, softer attachments are preferable. If you need to treat deeper spots, start with those and work your way up to pointier ones.
2. Before allowing it to touch your skin, turn it on.
Just to make sure it’s set to a speed that feels comfortable. Always test it first on the palm of your hand.
In general, practitioners work with them in addition to using their hands. While hands can make more intricate movements, massage guns can penetrate deeply into specific problem areas.
How Long Should A Massager Be Used For?
On their website, V-revive massage gun describes the various outcomes of using a massage gun for various lengths of time:
- Muscles reactivate after 15 seconds.
Quick mid-workout treatment can boost muscle energy and combat fatigue. Especially useful in between exercises during a HIIT session.
- Activating muscles takes 30 seconds.
Before working out, using a massager can increase blood flow and get your muscles ready. It can aid in preventing injury when coupled with a thorough warm-up.
- 2 minutes is beneficial for recovery and pain relief
A two-minute massage after working out can help with immediate pain relief and lactic acid buildup that occurred during exercise.
Are Massage Guns Harmful?
They most certainly can be in the wrong hands. They are strong objects that, if left on a spot for more than two minutes or applied too firmly to the skin, can aggravate soreness, cause painful tissue damage, and result in bruising.
This is especially true if you’re applying one to sprains or other more serious wounds. We would always advise leaving it to qualified professionals.
The types of treatments we’ve discussed in this blog can be carried out up to two or three times per day. To see results, you must stick to a three-a-day routine if you want to increase your flexibility and posture.
