What is the basis of your massage gun?
Our massage gun is a revolutionary application of percussion therapy. By targeting areas of body with concentrated, high-frequency pulses of pressure, it accelerates and enhances the repair of deep muscle tissues. This enhances the flow of blood to different critical areas, allowing for pain relief and subsequently improving function and range of motion.
It also provides a gentle stretch that in turn enhances flexibility, performance, and physical response.
Also, our brain reacts stronger to high frequency massage which desensitizes the surrounding area of a sore muscle groups until deep tissues are penetrated.
