The fitness gadget market is taking off with massage guns. These devices provide massage therapy benefits from the comfort of your own home by using rapid-fire pulses to target sore muscles.
Massage gun owners swear by its ability to relax muscles, increase post-workout muscle recovery and prevent delayed onset muscle pain (DOMs). The massage gun increases blood flow to the soft tissue and reduces lactic acid buildup.
Although researchers are yet to confirm the effectiveness of massage guns, studies support the therapeutic abilities of vibration therapy, massage, and percussive therapy.
