1. Performance and Stamina
Helps to increase muscle contraction which strengthens muscle and fascial tissues. A massage gun is a relaxing way to relieve tension in the body and shorten recovery times post-workout. The devices stimulate oxygen flow throughout the body, improving circulation and overall cardiovascular health. Increased cardiovascular strength improves stamina, allowing for increased gains during workout.
2. Powerful Pain Relief
Percussive therapy is a technique which uses vibration to heal tissue damage. The vibrations caused by the massage gun provide vital oxygen and nutrients into the muscles allowing muscles to repair quicker compared to traditional massage techniques.
3. Sports Rehabilitation
Massage is the most effective form of rehabilitation therapy for athletes. Massage guns have become a popular device among many well known athletes, due to their ability to release deep muscle trauma and atrophy.
4. Releases Lactic Acid
When oxygen levels in the body are low, lactic acid begins to form. The body will then try to compensate for the increased levels of lactic acid by converting lactate into energy. Lactic acid increases in the bloodstream much quicker than it can be burned off. This results in exhaustion, and cramped muscles. Massage guns stimulate the muscles to burn the lactic acid formed within the body, reducing chronic pain and fatigue.
5. Activates the Nervous System and Muscles
The nervous system stimulates and regulates the activity of the muscles and maintains the body’s homeostasis. Each time the muscles contract, the nervous system responds. Massage guns stimulate receptors of the nervous system, causing vasodilation of the skin and muscles, which release tension and help to relax with muscles while increasing mobility.
